Over the past quarter-century, I have helped all manner of riders get going on their bikes. I’ve been lucky to see the life-changing power of a bicycle. Sadly, I have also seen riders walk away from the sport forever due to simple discomforts. No discomfort is as debilitating as back pain. Luckily back pain is usually caused by a few easy fix issues. These issues manifest themselves in lower back pain and upper back pain. See below for causes and fixes.
