In brief: Doubt colon cancer

What you describe is very common especially in folks who do bike, usually after microtrauma.
Read online about coccydynia. At your age and without anything else to say "colorectal cancer", i'd not be concerned, but everybody your age should get a rectal as part of your annual physical; ask to be checked if you visit your physician for your coccyx.
