Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Shoulders

Having run marathons, I know your shoulders are the first thing to give when running, so it is important to relax them. I just rode in the hilly hundred for the first time this weekend, and noticed my shoulders were tired the second day....not so much I couldn't hold myself up, but annoying to me. Any tips on arm position to help this?

A good bike fit, strong core, and bent elbows will all help reduce shoulder/arm pressure. Good luck.
