It is an unsaid fact that health deteriorates with age. Even the best athletes fall prey to muscle tear and joint wear, and these unwanted ailments slow their movements where agility is necessary to clinch the good fight. If you have old injuries, they can also lead to joint problems such as arthritis – this takes a good while to recover.
Cyclists especially are prone to muscle and joint damage as they cover long distances on their bikes. Intensive cycling marathons put excessive strain on their joints which can yield problems later on, such as infrequent pain to arthritic conditions in the worst cases.
