As cycling involves only moving your legs in one plane your inner thigh muscles need taking through their range of movement to prevent any stiffness causing problems at your hips or knees.

Stand with both feet pointing forwards.  Keeping your hips facing forwards take your weight over to one side, bending your supporting knee.  Move your pelvis forwards and backwards to find the point of the greatest stretch for your inner thigh of your straight leg.
