Bike riding over rough terrain may result in fewer Daddies. It can reduce male fertility due to the jolts and vibration, which may cause small scars within the scrotum and impaired sperm production. These abnormalities were found in professional mountain bikers who biked an average of more than two hours a day, six days a week, in Austria.
Dr. Ferdinand Frauscher studied 55 mountain bikers ages 17 to 44 and found that nearly 90% of them had low sperm counts and scrotal abnormalities. Only 26% of the 35 non-bikers he studied had similar damage. Some of the bikers studied had already experienced difficulty becoming fathers.Impotence has already been linked to bicycle riding, in a study done in 1997 by Boston Dr. Irwin Goldstein, who suggests men should avoid cycling. Some doctors thought his findings were overstated, but a mini-industry of bicycle seats designed to avoid the compression of penile arteries has sprung up afterwards.
Frauscher says men don?t need to avoid mountain biking entirely, but should consider investing in bikes with shock absorbers or suspension systems designed to reduce the jolting. He agrees that problems may occur on narrow, racing-type seats. Some newer, wider designs have holes or gaps to avoid pressure, but these would have no effect on the scrotal damage he found in the Austrian study, which is caused by jolting over rough terrain rather than artery compression.
