Mountain bike shoe gives enough flexibility to allow for walking

Road cyclists tend to prefer shoes that are stiff – great for riding but not optimal for walking. Mountain bikers, on the other hand, usually opt for shoes that allow you to walk around without feeling so precarious. Getting this mix of a stiff midsole that's good for cycling with enough flexibility to allow you to walk without looking like Frankenstein's monster is a tough ask. Perhaps that's why it's not uncommon to see mountain biking shoes that the pros wear topping $300 and more.

The new rules of stretching

Unless you need to build your tolerance for boredom, most stretching is a waste of time. After all, when you review the research, it's clear that the most widely held principles of flexibility training simply don't work. Which is why few guys ever stick with it and even regular practitioners struggle to touch their toes. Worse, follow those age-old rules closely, and studies show that you'll actually be more likely to suffer a pulled muscle than if you hadn't stretched at all.
