I just started cycling about 2 months ago and am training for a 35 mile road fundraiser. I slammed my finger in a door and it is broken. I will have to wear a splint on my left middle finger for 6 weeks. I am only 1 week in now. Can I safely ride minus a finger? I tried gripping my brakes and I can still do it without the use of my middle finger. I will be so disappointed if I cannot do the ride. Any advice would be appreciated.
