Bike riding and flexibility 20-Jul-2016 At 10:07:52 PM devlin66
Really depends on the individual. I've ridden since about '86 and climbed since about '93. I've not stretched as much as I should ie. there were periods where I did stretch post exercise and periods where I just wasn't bothered. I've always had good flexibility. Much better than most and always had comments about it. I put that down to genetics rather than anything I did. Andy Richardson has shite natural flexibility and look what he has achieved. Running si good cross training. The impact helps with bone density and it's cheaper to do. The use the muscles slightly differently for each activity.

Basically if you have shit natural flexibility you'll have to work at it and if your lucky like me you can be a slack arse. If you want to do things properly, warm up slowly, cool down properly and stretch the worked muscles afterwards to elongate them after contracting so much. Helps them recover faster as much as reducing injuries.
