Hi all,

Bought a bike back at the start of september to get back into riding after a year or two out, been going for 2-3 rides a week whenever I've had chance but this last week my lower back has been aching/hurting 3-4 miles in to a ride, any ideas as to why this has started??

    Where's that string and tape measure.

    You could have an underlying back problem that rears its ugly head only when your on the bike.

    Try a more upright riding position.

    Keep more flexible by doing stretching exercises, they really help allot.
    Now where's that "Get Out of Crash Free Card"
