If you are a new rider, or you have friends who are new riders, the following tips may be useful to you.
It's understandable that you'll likely encounter hundreds of questions during your first year of riding. Because even people who have been riding for ten years are stuck with problems from time to time. But remember the following 6 points, and then do more attempts and understanding according to your own situation, and you can usually solve it smoothly.
1. It is best to buy a bike from a local bike shop
There are many advantages to buying a bike at a local bike shop: the shop can help you make sure the bike is right for you, can help you get the bike in perfect condition, and may offer you free maintenance for a period of time, And when you encounter problems, it is more convenient to ask them for help.
When choosing a car, professional advice will help you think long-term and save your budget.
If you're not sure what kind of car to choose, here are some simple suggestions for reference. Simply put, an endurance road bike can be suitable for all novices; if you want to ride in mountains or complex terrain, you can choose a mountain, adventure or all-terrain bike (GravelBike). If you feel uncomfortable with the low handlebars, you can choose a comprehensive model, but we still recommend that you start by trying a road bike. If racing is your ultimate goal, look for an aluminum road bike like the Cannondale CAAD or Specialized Allez.
2. Before starting to ride, adjust the bike to the most comfortable state for riding
Even many professional riders who have been riding for decades are still doing fitting and adjusting their bikes. For many riders, fitting is a never-ending task that requires constant adjustments based on personal factors and sporting goals.
If you want to ride more comfortably and avoid injury, one of the most basic suggestions that applies to most people is-the seat height must be appropriate.
Here's how to find the height that works best for you: Put the sole of your back foot on the pedal and turn to the lowest point, at which point the leg should be straight. This gives the legs some room to flex when you engage the pedals with the forefoot. When riding a bicycle, the elbow joint also needs to be properly bent; in the riding posture, the front wheel hub in sight is blocked by the handlebar, which is the best posture.
3. Learn how to change tires
It's a problem any cyclist has - looking at a flat tire and not knowing what to do.
If you don't know how to change a tire, ask a local bike shop or a friend, or learn online, and practice at home until you get the hang of it.
4. Buy some necessary equipment
It might seem like cycling is a very expensive hobby. It is true, but it doesn't have to be. We don't have to be like Power Rangers, and we have to buy a cabinet of equipment at the beginning to feel comfortable.
It is recommended that novices buy equipment at the beginning: helmet, car lock (if you need to park the car in a public place), car lights, gloves, cycling pants (long leggings in winter), bottoming shirt, cycling Clothes, good quality waterproof jacket, pedals and shoes, pump with tire pressure dial (for home use), portable pump, portable tool set.
Smartwatches are also great for cycling. BP Smartwatch can track and record cycling data such as time, distance, average speed and calories burned. Using this data, you can analyze your training performance, track your progress and set goals. Plus, it monitors your heart rate to make sure you're riding in a safe state and preventing overtraining.
Of course, you'll want to buy more, but the above is the bare minimum you'll need.
5. Join a riding club
To an outsider, a cycling club might look like a bunch of intimidating, confident, cold-blooded cycling experts. But in fact, a good cycling team will welcome newcomers to join, and will help you when you encounter any problems, whether it is in terms of riding technology, mechanical aspects, or routing.
6. Before parking, unlocking early is always better than unlocking late
Once you've learned and successfully unlocked the first time, it will be much easier to disengage the pedals in advance during subsequent rides. You can practice slowly on the grass at a low speed first, or use a clip to block the middle of the lock pedal when you are beginners, so as not to let it really lock, which can assist practice.
Of course, in the current humid climate, you must be more careful and try to practice on a softer ground until you can lock it proficiently.
Cycling can harvest the beautiful scenery along the road. Pack your bags and get ready to go!
