The introduction of VitxCycle into my daily regime has dramatically reduced the volume of additional vitamin-based injections that I normally would have from my GP every 2 weeks, to combat the effects of the Crohn’s disease. It really has been a game changer for me. How would you describe your cycling style? Puncheur
