Wow - just came across this thread. I'm a biker, typically about 75-100 miles per week. The symptoms that have been described are precisely what I have. A cramp-like feeling in the quads from walking downstairs or downhill, and usually worse when I travel. it's not a true cramp, as the pain is not a sudden contraction. Rather, it builds slowly and feels like a cramp, which can be relieved to some extent by stretching the quad and rest. I've yet to find a cure, but will definitely work on the stretching and other methods described here. Thanks.
