Introduction: Higher number of cycling injuries were observed during the COVID-19 period in the United Kingdom at our institution. Many were serious injuries requiring hospitalisation and some requiring surgery. We investigated whether the lockdown led to a legitimate increase in incidence of cycling related injuries, resulting in a higher number of aerosol generating procedures (AGPs). This would assess whether the guidance on exercise during lockdown was appropriate, shaping future regulation in the case of cyclical lockdowns.
