I have just suffered a fractured collarbone at the London Triathlon. How soon will I be able to get back on the road bike, run and swim? I am already back on the exercise bike for short periods of time.
It really depends on the fracture.
I fractured my collarbone in April, however, it was the least common type 3 - proximal 3rd. I was able to cycle on turbo immediately and was back on the road in just over 2 weeks
The most common type 1 fractures in the middle third will be much longer before you are riding outside again
.... I got away very lightly with my broken collarbone, however, injured my knee 8 weeks later and didn't run for 8 weeks, only running gently today
