corns2Cyclers exercising and preparing for their first “century” or 100 mile ride should keep in mind three factors that may influence whether or not their feet experience any soreness or numbness: the type of shoes they are wearing, the type and position of the cleats, and their overall bike fit. To find the best shoe for their ride, cyclers may have to experiment with different sizes and types; the same can apply in finding the right type and position for their cleats. A professional bike fitter can determine the best bike fit for cyclers and can adjust everything from saddle position to the exact placement of the cleats on the shoes.

Exercising the feet and ankles regularly is a great way to prevent injuries. If you have any foot or ankle concerns, contact Dr. James Ricketti of New Jersey. Dr. Ricketti will treat your foot and ankle needs.
