:cool: What could I possibly be doing wrong or do I need to do to help this?
I have stiff shoes that fit well. I ride about 12 miles per ride, 2 or 3 times per week.
My husband's hands will appreciate any advice that will decrease the ache in my arches!

possibly try a pair of insoles like these: http://www.superfeet.com/activity/cycling.aspx

Could it be Plantar Fasciitis??

I've had it in the past. For me, Nike's were unbearable (and I considered them stiff), but my dress shoes were very comfortable (because they had a steel stay in the sole).

Stretching, awareness, pain reliever....and in a couple weeks it was gone.

Also, check to make sure your cleats are placed in the proper position on the shoes.

I have super high arches AND a full size difference in my feets, so my cleat placement is essential to comfort and function.

Hello all, I think I will try all of the stuff mentioned. I ordered insoles :) I also will go to LBS and see about adjustments on cleat placement. My mom has been treated for Plantar Fasciitis and I will follow the advice of her podiatrist and the info on the link. Thanks for the great advice!!!!
