I have heard of the benefits of massaging after a hard ride to promote circulation, get rid of wastes etc. I have never done this before and was wondering how you guys go about it? Do you start at the calfs or at the quads? Do you massage the muscles in the flexed or relaxed form? (ie leg extended or straight) How long do you spend at each muscle? Do you use just the thumb or the whole hand? Any other tips would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for the help.
