Top 5 Summer Cycling Tips

Top 5 Summer Cycling Tips

Without a doubt, summer is one of the favorite times for many cyclists. This is because the season offers them several cycling options and trails to enjoy with little disruption by the weather. However, if you would like to maximize the enjoyment of cycling during this season, it is crucial for you to follow certain tips.

Given this, here are the top summer cycling tips you should know:

Be fully prepared for the activity

Before you start cycling, you should conduct due diligence to ensure that nothing meets you unprepared during the exercise. It is recommended that you choose the route you want to cycle and ensure that you let one or more persons know that you are cycling around such a route. Also, make sure you know a couple of shades where you can rest when necessary.

Additionally, your preparation should involve picking the right wears. Generally, you are advised to wear:

Furthermore, you should decide how long you want to cycle based on your health condition so that you don’t cause stress or strain for your body.

Ensure proper hydration

Cycling in the summer often leads to massive dehydration that can have a significant impact on your body. Once dehydrated, you may start feeling very hot and destabilized on the bicycle. Therefore, you shouldn’t take chances with your health. Makes sure you have a filled water bottle with you as you cycle.

Also, be certain that the water can serve you throughout your cycling exercises. Of course, you shouldn’t just have water with you; you must ensure that you take it regularly during the ride.

Know the right time to cycle

During the summer, some parts of the day are generally known to be hotter than the other. So, you want to avoid cycling during this period as you are likely going to be more dehydrated and less energetic. Typically, the hottest periods are often from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. This means that you should consider cycling early in the morning or late in the day.

Take it slow

Since there is no snow, rain, or other conditions that can slow you down during the summer, you may want to ride your bike as fast as possible. Unfortunately, this is not advisable as the hotter weather will make you spend lots of energy as you try to speed. This can further increase your level of dehydration and put your health at risk.

So, take it slow. Enjoy your cycling without going extra lengths or riding too fast.

Always replace the lost electrolytes

If you are cycling for a long time, you are bound to lose some important electrolytes, such as sodium, in the process. Therefore, you must be intentional about replacing those lost electrolytes when you are done with cycling. To replace the electrolytes, you should consider eating peanuts, pretzels or other salty food and taking electrolyte drinks or chews.

With the tips above, you shouldn’t have a problem with cycling in the summer.
