New to the forum and can see some great information in here.
I couldn't find a discussion on this topic but if I've missed one then I'm happy for somebody to point me in the right direction.
I seem to have a recurring issue when riding on long rides 100+ km / 3+ hours.
When I finish the ride I have itchy bumps on the inside of my legs at the knees and inside of my arms.
They look like mozzy bites and are extremely itchy (hard to resist the itch).
I presume they are hives. I've googled the question and got all types of answers but it seems to be common in all sports.
Just wondered if anybody here had experienced the same and whether or not they had it diagnosed or have a suggested remedy.
Interested to hear people's experiences.

A non drowsy antihistamine usually fixes it. If I don't take one it usually goes on for days if not weeks.
