Painful burning of the ball of the foot (a.k.a. "hot foot," or metatarsalgia) is usually a result of hot weather or poorly fitting shoes—or both—on long, hilly rides. "Pressure can pinch nerves in one or both feet and shut down a ride fast," Amol Saxena, DPM, a time-trial cyclist and podiatrist in the department of sports medicine at the Palo Alto Medical Hospital in California, says. "If hot foot strikes while you're on a ride, there isn't much you can do other than stop, take off your shoes, and let your feet cool down."
