Get out and ride!

Get Out and Rid

Late summer and fall weather often offers some of the most comfortable riding conditions. There are still rides scheduled throughout the week for all levels of riders. You can check out local club rides and rides across the state by clicking above on the "Community" button at the top of the page.  The "Knowledge" button above has some great links to information and contacts to get you going the right direction fast.

In all weather and temperatures it is important to stay hydrated. 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

Control The Kids By Setting Some Rules - Having trouble controlling your bike because of a rambunctious child in the seat behind you? Consider setting some rules. Usually, if you tell him that he can't ride unless he rides safely, he'll get the point quickly and behave. Or try bribery: Promise a treat at ride's end if all safety rules are obeyed. Trailers are much more forgiving in such situations. Kids can even play a favorite card game or amuse themselves with other safe-to-travel-with playthings inside the confines of a bike trailer.
