Cycling pain can be a problem and it is repetitive cycling injuries that cause unnecessary pain to cyclists. Some of the problems can be caused by overuse or issues with posture an answer to this is to rectify an improper riding position.
Over long rides, lactic acid builds up in the muscle, causing pain. Most cyclists rely on their thigh muscles, the quads, to power the bike forwards and as a result this is where cyclists will feel a lot of fatigue. One way to keep the quads in shape is to use kinesiology tape which can promote muscle endurance and aid recovery. Another possible solution is to alternate between pedaling in and out of the saddle. This will spread the load among other muscles and avoid overloading the quads.
