I am a 33 year old male and I have been told my heart rate is way too high during excercise. I am a cyclist and on the hard rides I will typically be in the high 170's and sometimes even in the upper 190's. I have had physicals in the past and blood pressure checks out ok and even my resting heart rate is ok. But any time I get on the bike it immediately jumps up even if the effort isnt that difficult. What could be causing this and is it safe to continue cycling with a heart rate spiking into these levels?
