That and I had a relatively minor (approx. 7mm in length) (not displaced) intra-articular distal radius fracture. No surgery. I'm approx 40 y.o.

The cast came off after 6 weeks. Docs said I could ride a bike but nothing too rough...mainly because of the stiffness and discomfort. I rode my bar bike today and it wasn't so bad...but trail riding would be no fun.

I am going to ride. I have a 1000 bucks invested in this trip and it not everyday i get to go to whistler. I have a simple fracture and i should be cool. What I am really looking for is sugestions from riders who have ridin in casts about how to shape it and what to expect while riding. Thanks for everything else though its helped alot.

Bro, how was your trip? Did you made it?

I broke my wrist 1 week ago, its a minor one. From today i have 6 weeks to heal and get ready.

So i have the same issue.

Broken both wrist's..2 times on my right one..Best to let it heal 100%..which I didn't completely do, Big mistake on my part, being young and wanting to get back racing..At almost 70, my right wrist especially bothers me doing certain things, so let it heal up, and you should be golden..

Ha ha,
Just found this thread. Bust wrist (radial) out of plaster (5 weeks) cant put any pressure on bars (possibly more like ligament / tendon / muscle damage causing this than the fracture)

OP went to whistler after 6 weeks - having been there I cannot imagine the pain of riding those braking bumps with a freshly bust wrist)
Yikes!!!!!!
