Cycling Training Tips and Bicycling Resources

The bicycle is one of the best pieces of equipment to use for fitness as well as a fun way to get into and stay in shape. In addition to being a competitive sport, you can bike for pleasure, bike to work, bike to school or use your bicycle to enhance your quality of life. Whether you have a road bike, a mountain bike or an exercise bike, bicycling is one of the purest forms of exercise. You can use your road bike to commute to work and then come home and use your mountain bike to experience the serenity and beauty of trails that tranverse our country sides. If you are a city dweller, an exercise bike is the perfect way to get a fitness workout because it takes up very little space and only requires some comfortable bicycling apparel and a few bicycling accessories for a complete workout.

Cycling Training Talk

Pedal Off the Pounds. Distance cycling is definitely the way to trim your waistline. Stay at a lower intensity to accelerate your metabolism and aid fat-burning. Ride an hour or more 3-4 times a week and kick it up a notch with a 2-hour-long weekend ride.
If you're running short on fluid, guzzle it all. It's better to be hydrated for a while than to ride on a continual shortage.
Pedal with one leg at a time to become better at applying force all the way around the pedal circle.
Even if your brakeshifter system is designed to work lubeless, you might want to lay a thin layer of lube if you ride often in wet conditions.
Your body accounts for 70% of air resistance. In the wind, hunker down on the drops or bar-ends.
Spinning in the saddle for the bulk of the climb, then shifting to a bigger gear and standing up to blast over the top is a classic technique for dropping other riders.
Train your legs for faster pedal turnover on flats and climbs by spinning out while pedaling downhill.
Eat the same in training as you'll be eating in an event. You aren't just conditioning your muscles, you're conditioning your stomach.
Wear sunglasses to feel fresher on long rides. Sound silly? Squinting into the sun and wind taxes the muscles of your eyes and face, which contributes significantly to fatigue.
Get Fit Bicycling: If you are 150 pounds, sleeping burns 61 calories an hour, tap dancing burns 326 calories, and bicycling at 15 MPH burns 680 calories an hour!
If your back hurts when you ride in the drops, raise the stem until the handlebar is less than an inch below the top of the saddle, or even with the saddle.
To easily adjust a borrowed bike, memorize the distance from the center of your crank to the top of the saddle.
Check brake pads for wear or embedded objects after every wet or muddy ride, or every 3-5 rides in clean conditions.
