I am a head trauma survivor who is slated to ride more than 1,000 miles across NY state starting this september at 50 -70 mile daily stints to raise public awareness regarding head injury...recovery from trauma (I was shot in the head).

I have two questions.

1) I crashed July 31 and sustained hairline fracture to shoulder, mild concussion, contusions. Am getting back on bike tomorrow. Prior to injury was in ready-shape for ride. Any suggestions on my return to training?

2) Rash down below (ugh)...any thoughts? hydrocortisone no help.

Thank you all. If ever any of you need to link up with help/support re: head injury, please let me know.
