Yoga For Cyclists
Yoga for Cyclists
Yoga is excellent at reducing tension and maintaining mobility in a sport like cycling where the upper body remains relatively static for long periods potentially leading to issues with the back, neck and shoulders. Cycling-specific stretching can also guard against, and provide relief from common cycling overuse issues such as sore hip flexors, iliotibial band syndrome and piriformis syndrome leaving you to ride for longer in comfort.
