You have a fibrous knit within 1-2 weeks of the injury, but it will take 6 
weeks or more for complete calcification.  With the fibrous knit, you are out 
of danger of having a broken end become displaced and cause more damage, so 
"technically" you can ride--but you will still have some discomfort at that 
stage (as you have already figured out!).  Some degree of activity at this 
point is beneficial, but you are the only one that can gauge your comfort 
level and how much you want to do.
