Pain After Cycling
by Darren Wood
4 years ago I returned from a 10 day sea kayaking trip and went straight on a cycle tour in mountainous terrain.
I bent over to pick up a friend's punctured bike tube (with a straight leg) and felt a sudden shock through the groin/hip area. After, I wasn't able to sit on the bike or ride it.
Since then the left hip area has been weak and painful. Specifically when I kick while swimming or run, it feels like I have pulled a muscle again.
Cycling has been okay, but I get pain in the front of the hip/upper quad when in an aerodynamic position with my hands on the drop bars.
Scans have revealed nil.
