    Polish cyclist Pawel Poljanski gave his Instagram followers a glimpse into the toll that riding 1,758 miles can take on one’s body.

    On Tuesday, after riding in the 16th stage of the Tour de France, Poljanski posted a picture of his legs and added: “After sixteen stages, I think my legs look a little tired.”

    Medical experts say Poljanski’s condition is caused by a massive amount of blood moving through the veins, Today reported.
