Foot pain is something that almost every rider deals with at some point.
And while the cycling industry has given us some solutions, the problems still don’t seem to get better on a permanent basis for a lot of riders. Sure, getting a bike fit or moving their cleats around can help the pain for a while but it always seems to come back in some form or another.
And, like most riders out there, I used to think that this was a normal part of riding a bike. Experiencing some foot discomfort or pain was just part of the price we paid for the sport we loved…
…or does it?
What if this wasn’t a natural part of the riding experience but instead brought on your own equipment?
What if you could ride pain free and maintain your performance with a few simple tools?
Well, it turns out that this is exactly the case. When your pedals and shoes aren’t giving your foot the right blend of stability and mobility it causes problems for your feet that don’t have to be there.
One of the leading experts on foot pain and cycling are Drs. Marty and Robyn Hughes with NaturalFootGear.com. They have dedicated themselves to promoting the benefits of natural foot movement both on and off the bike and have helped thousands of people overcome foot pain through their work.
They recently put together their list of the Top 5 Tools to Combat Foot Pain When Cycling and I wanted to share it with you as well. It is a great way to get started on the road to foot healthy cycling and enjoying the benefits both on and off the bike.
Riding a bike doesn’t have to be a pain in the foot (yes, that was a bad joke). With the right tools you can enjoy pain free performance, which can only make riding more fun.
So check out the link above and enjoy more riding with less pain…unless you like having to limp around after a long ride until your feet stop hurting. I’m not going to judge you if you do, just saying that there might be better options.
Until next time…
