I have been riding motorcycles for about four years now. I started out as a passenger on my fiance’s motorcycle and eventually got my own. I have not found that riding upsets my indeterminate colitis. Now, I definitely don’t go riding while I’m flaring or not really feeling all that well. I don’t recommend that at all! Not something that you really want to have to worry about when you’re on a motorcycle!
If you are worried about riding while having IBD there are a few things that you can do to try and be ready for any situation. You could carry an emergency kit with you just in case something happens and you’re not around a toilet. Here are a few things I keep in my emergency kit:
- Extra underwear
- Wet wipes
- Extra pants
- Plastic Bags
I also pretty much always have Imodium on me but it’s not normally something I take with me while riding. Like I said, I don’t normally ride my motorcycle when I’m not feeling well. I don’t have to depend on it to take me to work or anything, fortunately. I ride for fun when I can.
I hope everyone has a good week! Safe travels!
