Injury prevalence can be surprisingly high among cyclists. The predominant issues we see in clinic include overuse injuries and also trauma caused from falling off the bike.
Most cyclists do a good job working their pedal-pushing muscles. They build strength and power in their quads and glutes when they are on the bike and (hopefully) back it up through leg presses and squats at the gym. But unless you do a lot of single leg pedalling drills or otherwise consciously work the pedal-pulling hamstrings on the back of your thighs, chances are they’re neglected and relatively weak by comparison.
