Second ride of the year yesterday. Bike felt great, I felt great. Did a little over 20 miles. I felt fine until the 15 mile mark and then my body just seemed to lock up. My shoulders, and neck, my legs, all seemed to be stiff. I could pedal on but was like a metronome. Steady slow pace and just nothing left in my legs.
So is this just early season fatigue? Or am I lacking something like potassium?
I had the same thing last year at the end if greater distance rides. Do I just need a sugar boost? Any thoughts?
