scubagirl, scubagirl, scubagirl,
You've obviously forgotten your open water
training. when you cramp, straighten you leg,
grab the end of you fin and gently pull towards
you. . .
oh, wrong sport. nevermind.
Seriously though, you can use the above to relieve
cramp when riding(without fins!), alternately you can stand
with 'the balls of your feet on a curb and GENTLY lower
your heel, stretching your calves, DO NOT BOUNCE.
I'd load on potassium and magnesium via
bananas and not just on the ride. I eat 2 a day
and don't have problems with cramping anymore.
Check out the composition of your sports drink if you
are using one, make sure it has P and Mg in it.
Given the weather here its easy to mess up electrolyte
balance due to excess sweating and drinking large
amounts of water to rehydrate.
Hope this helps,
