A few from my years of cycling.

Shoulders and Deltoids - put handlebars so the tops are parallel to the ground from the stem to the brake hoods.

Base of the neck - tipped nose of seat up.

Hot spots on the bottom of my feet - moved cleats further back and wear orthotics on really long rides.

Lower back - lowered my seat and got easier gears

Right knee - raised my cadence. Nothing like realizing you're in like top gear at 18mph...

Cramping in calf and thigh--walked it off and then took it verrr-rr-r-r-r-ry easy heading back to the car. (Many times....) I actually found a chewing gum (Quench) that seems to help stave off cramping; it contains potassium and other electrolytes, and sure beats eating a banana (>>gag<<).
