This weekend I had my niece across from the mainland visiting.
Her entire family are competitive cyclists...downhill, cross country and distance....(I'm always amazed at what they are up to next!)
A long story short, I talked to her about my cycling and that my "sit bones" and my knees were sore after a long ride.
She gave me all of the suggestions that I read on the team thread and then this little gem:
Asking me to sit on my bike she checked my leg position when the pedals were at the bottom of the rotation.....and I've been riding with my bike seat too high!
My hips really rocked when I pedaled and my legs were completely straight when my pedals reached the bottom of the rotation.....your legs should have the slightest bend at the knee (very slight). I gave her a big hug ~ (I love it when younger people teach me something from an area that they are passionate about!)
Hope this helps others in our team that might be experiencing the same issues.
