Shin pain after cycling

Hello all,

On Sunday I did my first longish bike ride of about 50 miles. The furthest I’d gone before this was about 25 miles. My legs felt a little sore on the shins afterwards but nothing I would call painful.

On Monday I did running club and on Tue morning swimming.

Now my shins hurt quite a bit more, especially if I try to jog as I did for a bus this morning.
Has anyone had shin splints from cycling? I’ve never got this before from cycling or running.



  • I would have a look at the insole in your bike shoes, a carbon sole has no flex which is great for power transmition but crap fior absorbing things like riders weight etc....

    I know of a few riders that have had custom insoles fitted to their shoes and these are good way of increasing comfort. Ice the shins and get back out there.............

    If its still painful then give yourself a couple of days rest - don't risk injury if you already feel any sensitivity.

    Maybe some light stretching to see if that give you some relief
