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.
They then explained that I was young for a cycling journalist, which set me thinking about the nuances of the cycling world for the younger generation. Here are a few things you learn pushing the pedals before your prime.
Just like picking the perfect pair of running shoes, you first need to size your bike. Stand over the top tube and shoot for about an inch of clearance between your body and the frame. If this sounds foreign to you, your local bike shop can help with this. Get more details on how to find the right bike size here.
Some people consider half an hour on the turbo or rollers recovery, I always say a rest day is a rest day – for your body and your mind. I’m not an advocate of active recovery. You’re either resting or training. As soon as you start getting your kit on, you’re in bike mode.
