    Angry burning...numb feet

    I have started having issues with my feet. After 15 plus or so my feet start to burn and go numb. Have moved my clips on shoes back a fraction and that helped for awhile but went 55 miles today and had to stop a few times to let feet rest. The bike shop said to make sure the sole wasn't bending...not bending so now what? I bought some gel insoles today so I will give that a try. Any other help would be appreciated.

    Especially if it is hot outside, your feet may swell a bit after you are on the bike for a while. You may need to adjust how tight your shoes are after a few miles.

    the soles of my feet start to burn in places after I ride for a while.
    so on my pedal strokes, instead of pushing the pedals around, I PULL the pedals around as many times as i can (this is making great looking new muscles)
    after a while, your feeling of your soles burning will fade and those new leg muscles will start to burn. Share the love.

    Hot foot

    Ah yes, know it well. the nerves in your feet are being pinched. I understand the pain. It really sucks. Do you ride spds?

    My solution has been to buy lots of shoes. I now wear a cycliing shoe that is 2 sizes too big. The bigger shoe lets my foot float around and decreases pressure. I am afraid of road shoes/pedals, but that would be the next step. Road shoes have a larger platform, reducing pressure points.

    Do a search (here and google) for hot foot and you will realize you are not alone. You also might find some tips that work for you.

    I rode with a lady today who also suffered from hot foot when she rode. She, however, shared that once she started taking Vit. B everyday the problem went disappeared. It might be worth a try.
