My friends wife has just taken up road cycling and is loving it. She tells me that after about 30km into her rides she gets a real burning sensation in the bones of her feet. Can anybody suggest anything that may help?

PS I enjoyed cycling around Central Park in May this year and doing the 5 borough ride. If you New Yorkers can hold an event like that in New York, it gives me, a cycle event organiser here in NZ great boldness to hold any kind of an event here.

It could be as simple as her shoes are too tight.

What kind of bike?
What kind of Pedals,shoes etc?
Was she ever fitted for the bike?

This pain could be caused by a variety of factors, and she needs a real cycling expert, instead of the self-appointed ones here. has a fitness section where these kinds of questions are answered. You can peruse the archived columns or email a question to [email protected]. They usually answer pretty quickly.
