    flushed skin?

    To disable ads, please log-in.

    Does this happen to anyone else? I notice that after a few miles, my legs and arms are red. It seems to go away by the end of the ride, but I am curious as to what it is? Thinking it is due to increased heart rate, but ??

    Yup, just increased circulation and capillaries doing their job. Your cells are breathing deeply just like you!
