Ankle Hurts when Riding :/
When I ride My ankle starts hurting after about 30 minutes of riding. It never bothered be until December last year. I tried putting a brace on it but that didn't help at all. Does anyone else have this problem? Do you know of anything to help it? :?

I have a condition in my ankle called Osteochondritis. and i also experience pain in my ankle similar to yours.
Its to do with a dissapearance of bone in the middle part of your ankle bone.Obviously you may not have this but it might be worth looking into.

Live2Ride15 02-22-2012 03:13 PM

Hmm, to you roll your ankles while you are riding or put too much weight on your feet?

I Roll my Ankle every now and again when I don't catch my self doing it. So I do roll it enough to start catching myself doing it. :P I am usually Pretty light in my feet when I ride.

Hmm, beyond that, I don't really have any suggestions. If you were riding western (I am much more familar with that), I could offer more advice.

Sorry I couldn't be more help.

Well,I have an ankle that throbs like fury whenever I ride,but it's due to an old injury that didn't heal properly.So,long story short,now my whole ankle is crooked,and when I ride, the little bit of pressure on the balls of my toes and dropping my heel forces the ankle into a straighter position (where it should normally be),but it's quite painful after awhile.. Did you twist/sprain your ankle at any time,are you wearing different boots,anything like that? Sorry I'm not much help..
