Cycle Training Tips

Tour de FranceSet Up

Riding a bike that is not correctly set up for you will cause discomfort and even slow you down.  Everyone is different with respect to leg, arm and torso length, so visiting a specialist bike shop and having your saddle, stem and handlebar positions adjusted so that the bike is tailored to your individual needs is extremely worthwhile.

Top Ten Bike Maintenance Tips

Bicycle maintenance1. Keep it clean

If there is one thing you can do to prolong the life of your bike, it is keeping it clean. Tedious, but true. No fancy cleaning kit required – a bucket of soapy water, a sponge and an old toothbrush is all you need, though a proper degreaser will help break down the oil and grit in the chain and gear sprockets

2. Keep your tyres inflated properly

Poorly inflated tyres are prone to punctures. Pumps with a pressure gauge are best for this as it will allow you to gain the correct pressure. Look on the side of your tyre for a number followed by the letters PSI. That tells you how much air to put in.
