That burning sensation of lactic acid in your legs as you're cycling is all too familiar to anybody that rides a bike! But what if we told you it's not actually lactic acid that you can feel? Turns out, hydrogen ions are actually a cyclist's worse enemy, and we all owe lactic acid an apology! This week on the GCN Show, Dan and Si discuss. We also have all our usual features from inspiration, hack and bodges, and a special cycling shorts bulletin!
