Sorry to hear that! If there's anything we can do, let us know. I'm sure we can find a bike if you ever want to ride at whatever pace.
If you don't crash occassionaly, you're not riding hard enough!!

I will soon be joining you, I got told two weeks ago, that I have an irreparable spine issue, that requires me to give up all high impact activities.. I gave up running, but I refuse to give up biking, until I am in your shoes, and simply cant do this anymore.

sorry to hear that and wish you the best.  :)

That sucks LTS! Really sorry to hear that. I guess it's better to not ride than to have permanant damage resulting in something worse. Gool luck wit h your back and stay in touch.

If I recall he posted that he had broken a bone pretty severely sometime back. He had said it was questionable to be able to ride again. :(

Oh, I'm riding still lol, riding is a passion of mine and as of now, it hasn't hurt my back, but within the next decade or so, I will have to make the choice between riding or having even more back issues..The Doctor told me to give up high impact activities..my reply:.."I ride a couch." lol
RockGardener is in the place, I will be in, in a few years..I suppose, when I get in his shoes, I'll take up being a roadie...better than nothing, I suppose.

If nothing else you could get into a hybrid that's more upright and possibly still be able to ride. I know several people that were in the same situation and went to one of those and could still ride with little problems if any.
