Tough question. I'm not necessarily a fan of trying to improve movement patterns during training, especially when it comes to endurance sports.
Personally, I find ancillary work (single leg bridges, cable lift patterns, etc) followed by movement prep warm-ups are the more ideal ways to improve patterns...
If the cycling is still the primary aggravating factor, you may need to take time off the saddle to let it heal...have you consulted an MD regarding injecting it with cortisone or taking a short high intensity oral steroid series?
That said, here's my good friend talking about "piriformis syndrome"
+1, may not be the cause, but certainly could be. If you're having a chronic problem that has lasted multiple Dr.'s and long periods of time, best to simply ask and get a couple simple tests done.
I don't suffer from insanity; I enjoy every minute of it--
That said, even if it was the piriformis that was the source of noxious input, resulting in pain...it would still be just the victim.
So to the OP, if this is the case, please do not stop here and only do soft tissue work. You have to look for the culprit.
