I was starting off at an intersection with my Rockhopper. As I was starting off with my feet on the ground, I felt a sudden pulling followed by an intense pain in my left calf. What I would like to know is how to avoid such pain (especially as I had to bike the rest of the .75ish miles) in the future. Is it because the saddle is too high? I set it up according to REI's youtube video - tiptoes when standing over the saddle.
Or am I doing it properly and I should stretch? It was a spur of the moment ride to drop off some stuff at the library when I decided to go do some extra riding.
Much thanks for your wisdom.
