Stretching...gets you faster! Cycling is a sport of repetitive motion that can lead to tightness in major muscle groups. Stretching can help to improve your flexibility and range of motion - which can lead to more comfort on the bike and possibly a more aero position! Look for stretches that focus on the quads, glutes, hamstrings, hip flexors, lower back, neck and shoulders.
