No sneezing, coughing, laughing or farting

Last Sunday ... 8:30 PM. Stopped for a drink of water while on a 20 mile bike ride with my daughter. While getting back on, something went wrong with the front chain ring derailleur. It stopped dead just as I was on top of the pedal stroke and I went over the handlebars of my roadbike to come crashing down on the tarmac ... on my ribs. I have broken at least one of them. It feels weird and painful because there is grating and clicks when I move. And it is painful if I lie down or do any of the things in the post title.
No treatment ... just painkillers and rest they said. No cycling for 4 to 6 weeks they said ... so I went out for a cheeky 15 mile flattish ride this morning and feel better for it :D :D :D

I broke two ribs a few years ago, how you managed too go for another bike ride straight after is beyond me :shock: I could barely stand up straight never mind ride a bike.

ouch! Yes get back on it. Take medical opinion with a pinch of salt. I fell over the handlebars at traffic lights in London in 1972. Never did find out why but I dislocated my shoulder and bashed a knee. Pulled shoulder back round and rode bike to A&E - how else was I going to get there!
