When running you will use your calve muscles alot, where biking you don't. Check cleat position is central.
Could be that there needing a good stretch as I think I'm right in satying that running shortens your calve muscles. Do stretches (leaning against a wall stretching the calve and the bent knee calve stretch) they should help.
I very rarely get cramp in the calf bikibg, more in hamstrings and quads if anywherePosted 7 years agojoe@brookscyclesMember
I've always suffered terribly with cramp. Dyfi Enduro 09 had me in physical 'little girl' tears, with the agony of it all.
So now, in the 90 mins or so before a ride, I sip/drink at least 1.5 litres of water. Then .75 litres of SiS Go in the first 30 mins of riding. After that, I just force myself to drink a bit more water and SiS Go than I really want to.
Probably cut out 50-80% of my cramp attacks, depending on other conditions. I think now it's a fuelling problem, rather than liquid. Must eat more, before and during rides!Posted 7 years ago
