Numb feet...

Don't know if this will help anyone but I discovered this the other day. After 25 miles into a ride, my feet (actually my toes) started to become numb. Rather than slow down/stop and stretch them, I started to pull on the upstroke when I cranked the pedals (rather than push down). The numbness went away almost immediately. After another 5 miles or so, it happened again, and I did the same thing. The numbness went away again. Ever since then, I use this technique when my feet go numb. Seems to work for me. Hope it helps.

Loosen your shoe laces or straps. You may need to adjust your cleat placement as well.
