Collectors spend the most money on their hobbies (£3,328), but cyclists are most serious about having the latest fashionable gear with over half (51 per cent) admitting it was important that they had the most up-to-date technology or equipment. On average, millennials have spent £2,533 on their hobbies so far, while retirees have spent £2,092. Over two-thirds (37 per cent) of millennials surveyed said they were likely to upgrade their kit, equipment and invest in the latest technology every year, versus just 15 per cent of 45 – 54s or seven per cent of retirees (65+). 14 per cent of millennials estimate they have spent more than £5,000 on their hobby equipment during their lifetime so far.
When you go on holiday without a bike, in the first session back your heart rate flies through the roof as soon as you put in an effort because you’re super responsive to that intensity. At the other end of the scale, on the last day of a training camp, when you go to do some efforts, you’ll struggle to get it up.
If you’re going out, and feeling sluggish, and you can’t complete the session you want to complete, that’s an obvious sign. Listen to your body, the sensations and how you feel. I’d say anybody riding their bike six or seven times a week is probably riding too much. The other one is heart rate. You get used to the way your heart rate picks up. If you’re struggling to get your heart rate to go up as normal, that’s a sure sign that you’re fatigued and due a rest day.
The (often mis-)perception is that cycling is reserved for those advancing in years, but on rare days you might catch a glimpse of the mythical creature – a cyclist in their mid-20s. While running around interviewing pros at a recent cycling event, a flattering member of the public asked “are you training to be a journalist?”, to which I responded “no, I am one.”
