    Make it better?? It's going to feel better tomorrow.

    Pain......is the sign of weakness leaving your body.
    Having a flat tire as part of the total cycling experience is highly overrated. Knowing how to fix one quickly is not.

    My preferred bicycle brand is.......WORKSMAN CYCLES
    I dislike clipless pedals on any city bike since I feel they are unsafe.

    Make it feel better? Don't ride. Eat whatever you want. At least for a day.
    Oh, that bit about "pain is weakness leaving the body"...check my signature.
    "Pain is weakness leaving the body"......yea, right!

    Drink a protein shake, stretch and do warm up exercise or a recovery ride. Protein helps the body repair the torn(sore) muscles.
