As we start the 2017 riding season we have much to be thankful for and to look forward to. It was a relatively mild winter and some folks already have a few miles in. Some of the early spring weekly rides have started up and the 2017 organized ride schedules are set.
Remember to dress for the weather. I use leg warmers or tights below 63 degrees or so. The fluid that lubricates your knees needs the warmth to work correctly.
Keep the trainer handy just in case the weather does not cooperate. Consistency is as important as intensity in most fitness plans.
Plan ahead, many of the poular rides can fill up. Pick out a couple of nice rides along with the Assenmacher 100 and put them on your schedule. Set a realistic schedule and goals that are achievable.
Sign up for an early season ride and put the 2017 Assenmacher 100 on your schedule. That can help motivate you and train your way to fitness while imagining tail winds and sunny summer days
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! Keep Riding! Matt Assenmacher

For Optimum Comfort, Check Your Road Bike Handlebar Width - Surprisingly, with all the attention paid to road bike seat height and stem length, handlebar width is often overlooked. Unfortunately, bars that are too narrow can leave you feeling cramped, contribute to numbness in your hands and cause difficulty breathing. And, bars that are too wide can make you feel stretched out and can also contribute to hand numbness. The handlebars that come stock on most bikes get wider as the frame size gets larger. Consequently, if you are tall with narrow shoulders or short with wide shoulders, and you did not change the width of your handlebar, it's possible that you're a candidate for a change. If you question how your handlebars fit, we can help.
