Stretches for Cyclist

Last week I shared with you the Benefits of Stretching for Cyclists.


Being more flexible and mobile not only makes cycling more comfortable, but also can improve your performance. 


Cyclist will often have tight hips and hamstrings which can lead to back pain, foot pain and knee pain and inhibit movement. 

Follow this sequence 2-3 times a week for more comfort, better recovery and more movement on the bike.
