Did the death ride a couple of weeks ago–I could never have done it with out the help of rocktape. I have Achilles tendinitis in both legs. I taped both Achilles as you suggested and I was able to climb the mountains almost pain free. I also taped my neck as in your instructions and it never was sore as it can after a lot of miles. The Death Ride is 129 miles and 16000 feet of climbing. Thank you rocktape.
