I think the neck has pain because the muscles there are getting cold from the ride. I had this issues and still having sometimes. However I'm pretty sure there is a way to protect the neck from coldness (sometime it's getting wet and while riding it is also gets cold). So can somebody suggest what things helped you? I personally for this moment purchased THERMAL WINTER BALACLAVA. It helps a lot however it is not the "panacea" (I mean even in it the neck is getting wet and sometimes wind does it thing. But for sure it helps specially when the weather is cold ). TO ALL: What do you use in order not to get your neck(muscles) catch a cold?
