First, some context: I commute to work on a fixie and go for longer rides on weekends on a road bike.
I often find my legs get sore/tired, especially when I've been on a longer ride or have pushed the speed on my commute... sometimes it's so much fun I can't take it easy :) My calves seem to be more affected than my thighs
My question is whether compression clothes are very helpful. I haven't tried any, but am quite interested. Also, would you recommend compression gear during the ride, or after riding, for recovery.
