OK. When I first started riding, my hands hurt. So I got some gloves, learned to let go of the "death grip" and change positions frequently. Now my hands don't hurt.
Got my saddle adjusted a bit the other day, and now I'm comfie down there, too.
Now my feet hurt. I think it's because I'm really flexible and after a couple of hours of pedaling, they just get too stretched out of shape. I have Wellgo Alloy/nylon ATB pedals, the kind with all the teeth to grip the soles of your shoes. Nothing fancy, like clipless.
So what kind of shoes should I wear? I tried wearing some athletic shoes, but almost fell when the laces got hooked on the pedal. But my slip-on casual shoes just don't give me enough support. Suggestions?
