My bottom bracket makes a creaking noise everytime I pedal. It sounds like wood bending.....any ideas?

I had this problem before on my older bike. The BB is loose. Go to a bike shop and to have them tie it up.

Assuming it is your BB, and not something like pedals, cleats, shoes, chainring bolts, etc. Remove the BB, clean the threads in the frame and on the BB, grease the threads, and assemble with the proper torque (usually marked somewhere on the face of the BB). That should cure it.
