Everyone wants to play hard and recover fully overnight with no effort required. Doesn't work that way. If you spent all week sitting behind a computer and then went out for a 6 hour bike ride on Saturday you are going to need some serious work on your hips. Not a fifteen second hamstring stretch or a few passes on the foam roller. You need real mobility work. Most of us sit WAY too much and don't spend nearly enough time taking care of our soft tissues.
