Foot Problems
 
Been riding for over 20 years and this year i started experiencing a burning type of pain on my right foot after 30 miles of riding. It's on the bone on the side of my foot right below my little toe. I'm using the same kind of pedals that I have used for many years, I tried putting a pad on it but seemed to make it worse on a 50 miler Saturday. Has anybody ever had this problem and what did you do for it? And have tried other shoes but had the same problem with them.

Insufficient data. Are you referring to a) a sensation of burning inside your foot, or b) a burning due to friction from your foot rubbing against the inside of your shoes?

If its "b" then its a common occurrence that can typically be improved by better shoe/sock combination. However, you must first address the cause. In my case, I had developed a callus on the outer part of my left sole on the bone that had to be removed by doctor.

The pain wasn't constant but would hit in waves (during the power stroke) of excruciating pain. The doctor just used a scalpel to shave it down. After that, I was issued shoe inserts and the pain went from 10 to 0.

Thanks for the info,sounds like B pain doesn't persist after done riding. But it doesn't feel like I have that much callus, I have tried a new pair of shoes and that didn't make any difference,and tried different pedals and same result.So I guess I will have go the doctor way, did you go to a foot doc ?

30.2 mi yesterday. My longest single ride in 30 years, but only half way to my goal for Sept.

It was a referral. But the procedure wasn't really anything that complex.

Today was 35 miles. This place is amazing in how diverse it is geologically. The following pics were all taken within 15 miles of each other. From a rain forest environment to lush grassy meadows to high desert.

Looks like an awesome place to ride!

Went out for an easy 10.5 miles today. I intend to do about the same tomorrow. Came back and did some yard work. Now I'm BEAT!

Whatever exercise I'm not getting from cycling, I am getting from yard work!

First century of the year. Temps, timing and conditions were perfect for it. That, and the olí legs weíre feeliní pretty good too!

one4smoke 07-23-18 10:10 PM

20.3 today with the family and dog. :tandem:

pandes 07-24-18 10:54 AM

15 - 20 miles

Doctor Morbius 07-24-18 03:42 PM

Just the usual 10 miles today. Nothing special.

My front inner tube basically exploded during a 60 mile ride today. It was either from the 100 degree heat or maybe the tube was just bad, perhaps also in combination with the fact that I am using a softer cheaper tire in the front. I replaced the tube and finished the ride. It was a great ride other than that one incident. I had a nice tail wind on the way home. Tail winds are awesome.

Probably a pinch flat, ...a.k.a snakebite.

jfoobar 07-28-18 03:27 PM

17.7mi of what was supposed to be a 32-ish ride but I had four flats in about five miles, all on my rear. New wheels, new tires, all four tubes were new. Yes, obviously something is wrong, but neither I nor the two other guys who helped me out could see or find any sort of culprit at all. We practically went over the inside of the tire and the rim with a magnifying glass. Went straight to the LBS after I pulled the plug on the ride and he basically said something about "bad luck" and put a new tube on it. I will take it for a spin tomorrow and fully expect a flat within a mile or two.

I would replace the rim strip, regardless of how it looks.

It's having a pit stop in the living room.

Agree 100%. If it flats again, I am probably going to take it to a different LBS (one where they actually build wheels) and ask them to re-do the rim tape and possibly polish the inside of the rim as well.

20.4 miles today. Trying to work up for a organized ride in August.

That's what I had to do at one point in time. Tape works much better than the rubber strip.
