This is obviously a detail that affects every corner of the cycling world, but riding with more alcohol than oxygen in your veins is something the mid-20s cyclist can take in their stride. Carbo-loading for the Sunday ride with a 4am kebab, pulling on your kit after three hours of sleep, it’s a familiar routine for the poor self-control of youth, especially twinned with the peer pressure of friends who wouldn’t ride 60km anyway.

Getting started is easier than it seems, and we’ll let you in on a little secret: You don’t even have to wear spandex if you don’t want. To help, we’ve gathered up five need-to-know beginner cycling tips to keep in mind before you hit the open road.
