Neck Pain & Cycling
Humans weren’t designed to ride bikes, we were created to have our feet on the ground. Cycling completely changes the weight distribution through your muscles and spine, but also bends the back and neck into an unnatural position that is often sustained for lengthy periods of time. Neck pain from cycling usually stems from poor posture and weak muscles. Pain caused by neck hyperextension (looking up to see where you are going) is made worse by positional issues on the bike, combined with a lack of flexibility.
