So if you hadn't ridden a bicycle in about 20 years and you were old what kind of damage do you think you could do to your back?

Could it not be just muscles that you havent used for a long time? Just asking because I have just spent two days cycling constantly around Amsterdam and had not ridden a bike for years. Was fine at the time then afterwards the pain in the backside was terrible! Felt like I'd been riding a horse for a month! Its ok now though. How long have you had the pain now?

Yes it went away by itself. It didnt make me feel sick though - it was basically just a sore a*! but yours dosent sound quite the same. However, I always feel sick if I take anti inflammatories. Were you cycling on really bumpy tracks where you might have given yourself a jolt? I hope it goes away soon.
