Hi all

I seem to have developed a pain inside at the back of my left ankle. It was stiff after my last long is (for me) ride. Now it is swelling up and is most painful when I come down stairs or try to stand on my tip toes. Any ideas what I've done or how to fix it?

Hi Steve

If there is something wrong with my ankle, or any other part of my body, I find that the best advice and assistance can be obtained from my doctor...

Hope you get your problem sorted soon.

This can be down to postion on the bike seat height and postion it can also be numerous other factors.

When I recently got a new road bike, I found I was getting pains in my left calf. The problem seemed to be the way the cleat on my shoe had been set; it made my heel jut out slightly. I adjusted it, and have had no issues since that point. I'd suggest looking at that if you use SPDs; but if not, still think about 'form' and where you position your heel as you pedal.

Ironically, I started cycling again after dislocating my ankle in a climbing accident a month ago. I wanted a no-impact solution to strengthening the joint again. Walking any distance is still quite painful, but I have no problems whatsoever notching up 40 miles plus on the bike.
