Just because you are not a pro cyclist doesn’t mean you should ignore the recovery phase of cycling. In their book “The pain-free cyclist”, Matt Rabin and Robert Hicks recommend massage as part of the recovery process and treatment for cycling injuries, writing “ getting rid of knots in and around tight muscles can help offload certain muscle groups and fascia… (which) can help relieve areas of discomfort and allow you to feel loser and move with more freedom on the bike”.

If you think this could help you, Simon at The Harrison Clinic offers a cyclist massage aimed at the common injury areas as well as general recovery.
