Occasionally ride a bike on an unknown road, throw away the map and start exploring.
This variability keeps you engaged and may lead to exciting new discoveries.
Rest intervals minimize rest intervals so that you can easily remember what to do next.
If conquering steep slopes is not the key climbing in a race, don’t try your best.
At first, stabilize the speed, then shift gears, maintain a step frequency of about 75-80rpm, and achieve a balance between step frequency and intensity under Sustainable intensity.

Affordable travel “put your bike in your hockey bag without considering someone reporting this exception.” Mountain bike world champion Brian Lopez said.
“For three years, I’ve been flying around with my bike, but I don’t spend more than $50 on it.” In order to pass the test smoothly, he removed his front fork and put it into his suitcase.

If the seat height is correct, your heels can just touch the foot pedal in the lowest position.” Said Todd Carver of bicycle accessories.

“If something happens in front of you when you drink water, bite the bottle until you pass the complex road.” Toddwells added.
Accurate gear shifting “prediction is the key to accurate gear shifting.” Frankie Andrew said, “in order to make the shift transition more smooth, you should shift before you really need it.” Tomzirbel recommends shifting in the insensitive area of the pedal travel, that is, at 12o’clock and 6o’clock.
He said, “the less force applied on the pedal, the more sensitive and reliable the speed change.” 11.
Take off the sleeves.

(1) The tire should not rub against the brake skin.
Make sure that the tread touches the ground sufficiently, there is no big gap, and the inflation is appropriate.
(2) Too much oil on the chain will absorb dust and dirt, and wear the transmission system.
The inspection method is to scratch the chain with your fingers, leaving only a small amount of oil on your hands, which is right.
(3) Pinch the front brake of the head bowl group, and check the head bowl group by shaking the handlebar back and forth.
If you feel loose, loosen the screw behind the handle first, and then tighten the screw in the center of the bowl cover until it is not loose.
Don’t forget to retighten the screws behind the handle before riding.
Riding is a pilgrimage for devout people.
It is a kind of penance and experience.
Sometimes I often wonder what the meaning of riding is? Is it persistence all the way? Is it the beautiful scenery along the way? Or the happiness of reaching the destination? Maybe not.
In the heart of everyone who loves cycling, cycling has different meanings, perhaps a kind of life perception, perhaps a self breakthrough, perhaps a kind of memory pursuit, perhaps a kind of growth honing, but no matter how it appears in people’s hearts, it is the spokesman of a healthy and upward lifestyle..
