Over the years you can build up a pretty decent array of quality kit, enough to pass the preliminary peer exams at least, but that leaves you praying that nothing breaks and holds you back on the road to cycling’s upper classes. Even then, winter is always coming and leaves you with the age old dilemma – do you buy a winter bike, ride your best through the bleakest months, or just pack it up and accept your fate until spring?
Cycling is for everyone – that’s the beauty of it. Anyone with access to two wheels can jump on a bike, breeze around the city or country and enjoy all the delights the velocipede can offer. That being the case, there are also some pretty key things you learn if you don the lycra a few moons earlier than the stereotypical road rider.
So this week, when I got a bike of my own for the first time in my adult life, I was pretty excited to learn the little secrets of the cycling world- the inside jokes, what’s revered and what’s reprehensible, everything about life in this facet of the world I had never explored before.
Next you need to pick a bike that fits your budget and riding style. Are you going to log casual miles on the weekends? Do you want to use your bike for exercise? Are you planning on eventually doing long-distance rides like centuries or racing? Road bike frames have specific geometries and components, tailored for each of these goals at every price point.
