how does everyone feel about riding around pedaling with one leg in order to remedy this problem? Effective or no? There's an undeveloped block of suburban sprawl near my house where I could do a bunch of laps on one leg without the local children pointing and staring at me...

Is there some outside reason as to why one leg is stronger than the other?

knee surgery a few years back, followed by not-too-diligent physical therapy. And after cycling for a few months, it seems more pronounced than usual. So I thought I might work on my pedaling muscles with the weak leg.
measure both quads around their thickest part and post both numbers
not to sound rude, but i kinda wanna see pictures of the little leg

it's not like deformed or anything, just noticeably smaller.
I feel like when I look in the mirror, my right quad is larger than my left. In the offseason I plan on one-legged pedaling on the trainer and one-legged squats in order to determine if there is a strength issue.
