    Groin Pain

    I have groin pain like a pulled mussel sometimes after an hour, hour and a half ride.
    Could it be the seat, angle of the seat ?

    Could be the seat, could be your form, and the way you ride. Did you get a proper bike fitting? Are you new to the sport? That might be it too. Or sometimes when I get out of the saddle and push myself, it can be sore.
    I've got your restraining order right here. [grabs crotch] Restrain this!

    Are you new to the sport? I guess you could say I am new to the sport. I am 63 and have started riding for the exercize.

    Your local bike shop can do the fitting for you.

    When the spirits are low, when the day appears dark, when work becomes monotonous, when hope hardly seems worth having, just mount a bicycle and go out for a spin down the road, without thought on anything but the ride you are taking. Arthur Conan Doyle

    Your muscles aren't prepped for bike riding.
    Get a proper bike fit, check for leg length discrepancy if the groin pain is only on one side, and go ride!
