I ride a recumbent, and would like to ask other recumbent riders if their feet swell. Mine don’t. In fact, I have to tighten my shoes as they loosen after the first five miles or so.
The reason I ask, is because a couple of diamond frame riders recently told me their feet swell after riding a while. They have to loosen their shoes a bit into the ride to relieve the pressure. Does blood collect in the feet since that is the low point?
I am wondering if this doesn’t happen to me because my feet are at the same height as my heart. I would like input from both ‘bent riders and upright riders. Do your feet swell? Thanks!
