Topic - A couple of cycling issues.

Tony the Blade on 24 Sep 2013

Beginning to rack the miles up on my treader now, 55 miles last Sunday. I'm cycling in next Sunday's Bath to Bournemouth ride - For BHF.

I'm having a couple of issues that I don't know how to iron out. I bought my first ever road bike a few months agao and I've had my set up done by a professional so I don't think it's a stance issue, but could be wrong. Anyhow...
1) After about 15/20 miles I start to get pins and needles in my left lower arm, I can usually shake it out within a matter of seconds. It got quite problematic last Sunday as I struggled to change my front gear due to numbness in my hand.

2) I get quite a neck/shoulder ache after about 40 miles, eased if I look down but this is obviously not a desired riding stance :-)

So there we go, any tips and/or advice gratefully accepted.

Thanks, TtB
