Numb feet when cycling

Posted: 19/08/2014 at 13:21

you think its not the shoes....but it probably're feet swell up a bit due to the blood flow increase...couple this with keeping em in the same position and they get numb.....also your arch may can get insoles to help with this.

bontrager shoes are the only ones i find with a slightly wider fit that stops this happening to me!!!

hey no need to say sorry to me chap...just dont want you turning left on race day before you should 


yes for sure ...its the not stopping that helps a lot....even 10 second stops over 6-8 hours can add up.


good luck with it.

Good summary I actually found the short sharp climb at end of Chorley Old Rd/Shaw Brow is pretty steep and 2nd lap might be a bit tough. 

Road closures and not stopping/slowing down completely at junctions & traffic lights makes a major difference on race day.

Yeah i'm afraid you've gont the wrong way there chap...on the original map you did turn left into chorley old road and go up shaw brow (and it is a bitch) but now you carry on to the a6 and then turn right into dawsons lane before the glof club.....check the new map you'll that ones out.


and please please dont assume there will be no'll get priority at junctions....and they will look after you best they can with managing it....but there WILL be cars on the course so stay safe
