Whether you’re a road cyclist or just riding your bike around for fun! Here are some general tips to keep in mind next time you’re scooting around Canberra:
🚴♀️ Make sure your cleats aren’t too narrow for the ball of your foot. Wearing tight cleats for long periods may lead to forefoot injuries like neuromas, bursitis, or ingrown toenails.
🚴♂️ Don’t have cleats? Any shoe will do, but a shoe with a stiffer sole can help you produce more power when you push on the pedals.
🚴♀️ If you find the same injuries pop up every time you ride, a bike fit is a great idea to make sure your bike is in the best position to suit your body mechanics.
If you’re getting foot, ankle, or leg pain while cycling, book in to see one of our podiatrist’s via our website or by calling us on 02 6198 4818.
