I commute by bike 5 days a week. It's a 22 mile round trip with approximately 1200ft of climbing. I've been doing this for about 18 months.
I really enjoy it, but towards the end of the week my legs are feeling decidedly achy and I feel like I just want to find a lower and lower gear.
I eat fairly healthy foods I think and have a nesquick milkshake after the ride home, but is there anything I could be doing to help with leg muscle recovery?
