    Thanks Hanneke. Were you already an experienced cyclist before your fracture? The reason I ask is I'm wondering what to do about pedals / shoes - I've never used cleats. Obviously I'm going to have to be very careful not to traumatise the bad ankle. Did you do some static cycling before going outdoors after your injury? If so how much did you need?

    Cheers Paul

    I had cycled all my life as a means of transport Paulo, but not much as a sport. I had bought a proper dropped bar road race bike not too long before getting injured as I wanted to try my hasnd at triathlon. It had clipped in pedals but I road those with a pair of trainers, as my ankle ligamnets and fibula would not allow me to unclip, for which you turn your ankle outwards. I would advice flat pedals in your case!

    Thanks - I think I'll definitely get going with flat and see how things progress. Certainly don't need to break anything else!
