    where abouts in the hand is the pain?

    What type of bike do you have, and what gloves do you wear?

    I would probably say it is just that. You have over worked a muscle in your hand that you are not used to using too much.

    When I first got my Racing bike, I got real aches in my hands after ~15-20minutes on the bike. After a couple of weeks the pain completely disappeared.

    i too sometimes get sore hands (the big muscly pad connected to the thumb) after riding particularly rock/rooted/downright bumpy trails.

    It usually goes away after a few hours.
    Whenever I see an adult on a bicycle, I believe in the future of the human race.
