    One QUAD much bigger than the other...

    how does everyone feel about riding around pedaling with one leg in order to remedy this problem? Effective or no? There's an undeveloped block of suburban sprawl near my house where I could do a bunch of laps on one leg without the local children pointing and staring at me...

    Is there some outside reason as to why one leg is stronger than the other?

    knee surgery a few years back, followed by not-too-diligent physical therapy. And after cycling for a few months, it seems more pronounced than usual. So I thought I might work on my pedaling muscles with the weak leg.

    I feel like when I look in the mirror, my right quad is larger than my left. In the offseason I plan on one-legged pedaling on the trainer and one-legged squats in order to determine if there is a strength issue.
