Get out and ride!

The 2015 riding season, it's coming!

The days are getting longer but the weather is still offering some challenging riding conditions!  But we know there is light at the end of the tunnel and that light is Spring and the riding season. It is time to start planning for the 2015 season. Most of the rides have updated web sites and the LMB ride Calendar has been printed and distributed. 

If you have a trainer, it is probably time to get some saddle time in. If you are heading outside dress appropriately and have lights in case you are out early or late.

In all weather and temperatures it is important to stay hydrated. It is important to drink while you are riding in cold weather too.  The humidity is often much lower so we are losing moisture through breathing as well as perspiration. 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. As the temperatures start to cool it is easy to forget to drink enough water.  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

Women: Consider Your Hair When Buying A Helmet - Because most helmets offer limited sizing adjustments, women should try on helmets to ensure they fit their hair style. Thicker, longer hair will mean a larger helmet. And, keep in mind that if you get a shorter hair style a helmet that used to fit might become roomy. If this happens to you, wearing a sweatband, bandana or do-rag can fine-tune the fit.
