Sore glutes

Been experiencing sore glutes during the ride and after. Lowering the saddle a little helped but soreness is still there. Any recommended adjustments to try?

Try shifting the saddle forward or just shifting forward for the whole ride.

Have you tried moving the cleats back on your shoes? That helped my sore legs a lot.

I get more glute activation when the saddle is lower. I'd try move it higher to see what happens. I'm guessing you are using your glutes more, which is a good thing.

Can you be specific about exactly where they are sore, and in what way? Chafing? Bruising? DOMS? It's hard to diagnose or suggest anything without more specific info.

Forgot I posted in here as well. Thanks for the replies.

Gluteus Maximus is my trouble area. Weirdly, I feel it much more on the left side than right.

I had similar soreness while riding, and I eliminated it by adjusting my saddle angle. At first the saddle was angled nose down slightly, and making it more level made the soreness disappear.
