I've been out a couple of times now and I am getting pain in my feet. It's almost like a cramping sensation. At first I just thought my shoes were too tight but I'm not losing feeling etc, just cramping.

Any ideas?

On a tangent, I've just dicovered the hard way that my ass isn't ready for 2 days on the bike in a row. Ouchie! :evil:

    Are your shoe cleats sitting under the ball of your foot? If they are too far back/forward, nasty things can happen...

    Are the inserts in your cycling shoes different to your everyday shoes? A lot of cycling shoes have 'arch supports', your feet maybe complaining about that :(
