Suggestions and tips for cycling trips

  • First of all you should make sure the bike is adjusted to fit you comfortably.
  • Select appropriate clothing. Cycling shorts are ideal but any comfortable sports clothes and shoes will be perfectly appropriate for your purpose.
  • Drink before you get thirsty, which translates into "always carry water with you".
  • Do some stretching exercises before and after your ride, this really improves your performance by as much as 30%
  • When riding on a main road, remember to signal with your hands to warn other road users of any changes of direction.
  • Make sure you always wear a helmet.
  • It is always preferable to get off the bike and walk rather than risk an accident on a surface you are not feeling certain about.
  • ΕιEspecially when riding in an unknown area, make sure you have informed someone where you are going, what time you are leaving and what time you expect to be back.
  • By all means take somebody else along for company.
