24 is a too young an age to get a stricture.So naturally you cannot afford to get another one.

Cycling per se will not cause any new stricture.But cycling accidents can cause them.

So there is no harm in cycling to your work as long as it is a safe & a smooth ride.

Use well padded seats and avoid bumps and holes.
