Ankle & Foot

Ankle & Foot

The ankle and foot region is very complex – there are 19 muscles and tendons and over 100 ligaments that control the movement of 26 bones and the 33 related joints.

The primary role of your feet in cycling is to efficiently transfer the power generated by your legs to the pedals. A range of factors including your foot posture and mobility, shoe and insole selection, cleat position and pedalling technique influence the function of your ankles and feet and can contribute to pain or dysfunction in the region.
