New Smart Watches
Novice riders tend to overlook some things. Here are some things that might be helpful.
1. Adjust the cushion to the most comfortable angle and state
The problem of uncomfortable cushions is common, so cushions have always come in a variety of styles and designs to suit everyone differently. You need to follow the feeling of your body and find out the uncomfortable areas. It is best to find a dealer who can try the cushion to buy, so as to avoid unnecessary losses.
In addition, it is recommended to wear special cycling pants for cycling, but the key is to have a suitable seat cushion.
2. Shifting is used to assist you in riding
Don't fight the shifting. When climbing a hill, turn the large wheel to a small number of teeth and the flywheel to a large number of teeth to make it easier for yourself; also when riding flat ground, turn the large wheel to a large number of teeth and the flywheel to a small number of teeth to ride faster and smoother.
Spend a little time on flat roads to practice. One day, you will naturally and quickly switch to the most suitable gear when riding.
Note: When your cadence is fast, but the car moves slowly, or when you feel tired when you step uphill, and your cadence slows down, your gear ratio needs to be adjusted.
3. Pay attention to road conditions when riding
Ride a meter away from the shoulder of the road so you can avoid obstacles such as sewer covers, but also signal other riders to keep a safe distance from you when overtaking.
Obey the bicycle traffic rules. Especially at intersections and roundabouts, try to go in the middle. These intersections are usually relatively dangerous areas for other passers-by.
4. Practice some basic riding skills
We don't need to accelerate from zero speed to the fastest speed, but learning some basic skills can make us more confident.
A few tips to keep in mind: the front brakes are more effective at stopping. You have to get yourself used to gently applying the front brake instead of slamming it.
When turning, be sure to slow down before turning to save braking time. Lift the inner knee and apply weight to the outer side for better balance.
As you approach ramps, keep pedaling to absorb as much kinetic energy as possible; occasionally lift the tire off the saddle to rest and stay comfortable.
5. Need to replenish energy while riding
If you are used to doing other sports, such as running or swimming, the practice of eating and drinking while exercising may seem strange to you. But you have to know that cycling may be a battle for several hours, so it is necessary to replenish water and energy.
For rides longer than 90 minutes, opt for energy snacks like cereal bars, and keep eating something every hour to refuel. Cyclists usually carry a bottle of water with them in a bottle cage, and taking out the bottle to drink while riding takes a little practice, but it's necessary.
Especially when shops and restaurants are closed, these skills become even more important.
6. Don’t rush to ride too much at once
Cycling is a non-weight-bearing sport, which is one of the many benefits of cycling: it doesn't put a lot of pressure on your joints. If you want to keep fit and lose weight, cycling is a good choice.
However, no matter what you do, if you rush too quickly, you may tire quickly, or injure yourself, or get bored very quickly.
If you have a goal you want to achieve, slowly increase your physical activity, create a training plan and follow it. Also make sure to take enough rest and focus on the big picture, making incremental improvements for long-term results.
The BP Smartwatch is stylish and wearable. It can monitor heart rate, blood pressure, blood oxygen, distance, calories, etc., to ensure that you ride in a safe state and prevent overtraining.
