My buddy rides very hard. He does carry a hard rubber ball with him, just in case he needs a roll on the road shoulder. He also makes it a habit to stand for just a few strokes every now than then, oftener but for fewer strokes than I do. Works different muscles through different ranges of motion.

I'm saying try it. The OP might be surprised at how effective it is ride already stretched instead of all cramped up.
