    hmmm. The best way to heal any sore muscles is rest. You could also try some of those Specialized
    body geometry grips, which take pressure off the ulnar nerve. A nice pair of padded gloves could
    help, too.

    Other than that do some sort of wrist exercises. What exactly, Im not sure. But a google should turn
    up something or other.

    Masturbate more often. It builds your arm, back, glutes, chest, leg, and neck muscles from the
    violent thrashing when you orgasm. Having a partner often helps. Oh yeah, it helps your wrists too.

    LOL. I was going to add that into my post but didnt want people to think I was a troll. But now it's
    out in the open, yea. Masturbation will help.

  6. You could expect to have a sore everything if you ride heavily after a long layoff. Ride easily
    every other day and build back up over a period of several months. Any attempts to beat
    yourself back into shape any faster than that will be counter-productive. A large number of
    serious and long-lasting injuries are generated by doing too much, too soon. You're not as
    young as you once were.

    Make sure your brakes are adjusted to the correct angle from your handlebars as well. You don't want
    your wrists bent too far one way or the other.

    Also try adjustning your handle bar, turning it slightly may help or perhaphs you need to adjust
    your overall riding position.

    Also carbon bars are supposed to real comfortable. (I asume you are not riding a rigid bike else
    start by getting a suspension fork).

    Kind regards

    Guess it depends on the terrain and the exact type of soreness. I've ridden rigids that were
    perfect on most surfaces but on really bumpy ground my wrists and palms would get sore if the ride
    was more than a couple of hours. But of course a suspension fork is no substitude for the right
    geometry settings.

    In AZ, I never had sore wrists but my non-suspended bike was a bear over rocky terrain. I had to
    loosen my entire upper body and barely hold onto the bars -- I essentially let "held" onto the bar
    by forming a very loose O around the bars. I'm a big fan of suspension, as it enables me to hold
    onto the bars with a tighter grip and with less fatigue.
