Hot spot

I get a hot spot on the bottom of my left foot after about 30 miles or so. It is annoying. Any cures for this? I use Shimano-like pedals. I have put an insert into my shoes.

Try stiffer shoes, shoes that fit better, different footbed in your shoes and maybe move your cleats backwards. There's no one answer, it's really an individual thing.

1. Move your cleats back as far as they will go.

2. Loosen your shoes.

3. Wear wool socks.

I have moved the cleats. I'll try loosening the shoes.

Yep. Likely the shoes are too tight/narrow. The foot needs to move around slightly within the shoe to relieve pressure spots.
