Dehydration and/or electrolyte imbalance are the likely cause of your cramps. Few bottles of a sports drink are in order. Or just water and bananas/apples. Both high in sodium and potassium. If the cramps persist, see your doctor of course.
Some blood pressure meds contain diuretics that can cause potassium depletion and cramps, especially in a high exercise environment in the summer.
The bicycle is one of the great inventions of mankind. Delights children, challenges young men to feats of daring, and turns old men into boys again.--Me
