Over 300km A Week = No Babies!!!

Postby ShoreBoy on Tue 30/Jun/09 11:14pm

Just found this on a UK news site:

Men who cycle more than 186 miles a week face fertility risk
Spending too long in the saddle could affect a man’s chances of fatherhood.

Cycling for long distances greatly reduces sperm quality and raises the risk of fertility
problems, a study has revealed.

It found that just 4 per cent of the sperm of athletes pedalling 185 miles a week – around 25 miles a day – were a normal, ‘healthy’ shape.

:crazy:

...if you believe it, that is.

I wonder if I should let Family Planning know - Cycling is a contraceptive!

Damn - I told my wife about this ages ago and made sure I cycled at least 1200km a month to keep myself sterile - and look at me now, babies coming out my ears! I need to ride more obviously.

The key word is "could" - they truck out this bullshit every now and then but cyclists still have babies. Don't worry about it unless you're actually trying to have kids, and not even then. :thumbsup:

Yes I have been seriously led astray also, following JohnL's advice of 'quality over quantity'. Thats the last time I believe anything I read on the internet :hmmm:

What you need to do is ride at least 300km per week
and then have no sex.

Chicks have been know to become spontaneously pregnant just being in the same hot tub with any one of the fine Bushlovers,

So on the face of that I call bullshit.

It is a Catch 22 situation. Don't ride your bike which means you are at home more, therefore more chances to piss the wife off which then means no riding at home. Either way your screwed, or not as the case may be.
