Two years ago I started getting severe pain in my second toe on my right foot. It comes after about 1-2 hours of continuous riding. If i stop every hour it doesnt come. If i stop and massage it will hurt worse before it goes away. It started suddenly. I am 55 years old and 75kg. I still ride all day rides on the weekends, but there are times i have to either stop or take my foot out of the cleat and play around with that foot.
Two years ago I got a new road bike, but the same thing happens when I ride my mountain bike continuously. I have two pairs of shoes and it happens with both of them. neither shoes have paddeid inserts. I use spd pedals. Before two years ago i could ride hours without stopping without this ever happening.
Yesterday I rode with a pair of very flexible non bike sandals on spd pedals and it started in 15 minutes.
Anyone have an idea? We don't have sport specialists around here. I asked a couple of GP doc riders and they had no idea.
I would be forever grateful for a solution.
