Get out and ride!

Ride yor bike!

This is it!  Now is absolutely the best time of year to ride.  If you already have some miles in you are feeling pretty fit and are up to speed.  If you are just getting the bike out get those bike tires pumped up and take advantage of the weather.  Late summer is generally a litrtle cooler, less windy, and the roads are as good as they are going to get!

Most organized club rides are in full swing and there are still quite a few tours on the ride calendar.  Best of all, ther is still a couple of months of good quality riding so let's take advantage of it.

Always remember:

In all weather and temperatures it is important to stay hydrated. It is important to drink while you are riding. On longer rides always eat before you get hungry and drink before you get thirsty. It is much better to maintain energy and fluid levels then to try and recover after they are depleted. I try to drink at least one water bottle per hour and more when it is warm out.

The cell phone is one of the most significant improvements in cycling safety ever! Have yours with you on all rides.  Keep it charged and have the phone numbers you need at hand.  If you have a smart phone learn to use the navigation features and other apps that will help you stay on course and in touch.  Many smart phones have tracking features, have someone close to you have their device set up to track you.  In an emergency a couple of key strokes will pin point your location instantly.

Keep your your bicycle in shape. Be prepared for the unexpected. Check your tires regularly for wear and damage. Keep them inflated to the correct pressure for the type of riding you are doing.  Make sure that you have a spare tube, pump, and you know how to use them.   Always carry your cell phone!

Today's Tip

Eighty-Six The BVDs - When you put bike shorts on over underwear, you end up sitting on the seams in the undies, which compromise a seamless bike short's ability to prevent pain. Seams cut circulation and form bumps that chafe and hurt. Besides, cycling shorts already include a layer of padding (called a chamois), because makers know you won't be wearing anything under the shorts. Whether you prefer boxers, briefs or bikinis, leave them at home to get all the comfort cycling shorts offer. (Plus, you'll eliminate those unsightly panty lines.) There is one time to always wear underwear: when you're trying on new cycling shorts in the store -- but you probably already knew that.

Cycling Glossary - Word of the Day

elastomer

(Say: ee - last - oh - mer) - A type of spring used for bicycle suspensions. It's usually cylindrical and elastic. Elastomers are lighter than coil springs and offer some built-in damping (suspension control), too.
