10 New Year’s Resolutions For The Cyclist

The beginning of a new year gives you the opportunity to refresh your cycling resolutions list. Whether you want to join a race, buy a new bike, or lose weight, 2018 gives you a fresh start to obtain your goals. However, if you want to pursue them, you’ll need obtainable New Year’s resolution goals that are achievable. Here are our 10 cyclist tips for New Year and ways that you can turn your cycling resolutions into a reality:

  • Lose the Weight
  • One of the best things about riding a bicycle is that it gives you a fun way to lose weight. Whether you commit to commuting to work on a bike or just cycling for fun in the afternoon, riding can burn tons of calories and slim you down.

  • Ride Safer
  • There are many bicycle safety tips that you can improve on for 2018. Invest in a new helmet, always ride on the street and not the sidewalk, wear brightly colored clothing, and ensure that all of your reflective lights are working properly.

  • Burn Fat
  • There is no better alternative to staying fit than cycling. Less weight means faster climbing, less drag, and better health benefits. Pick an achievable amount of weight that you would like to lose and then get to pedaling!

  • Enter an Event
  • Riding in a race or biking event is a great resolution to add to your list. There’s no better way to kick your motivation into high gear than putting your money where your mouth is.

  • Sign Up for a Biking Boot Camp
  • Signing up for an early season winter boot camp could help you have a better biking season. Head south or west where the weather is milder. A biking boot camp will not only teach you basic bicycle riding hacks, but you’ll also get a chance to meet people who share your passion.

  • Learn to Relax
  • Your job and other life obligations can be stressful, so it’s critical to learn how to relax. Developing relaxation skills can actually benefit your riding, effectively controlling your attention on the road and keeping you safe.

  • Keeping a Healthy Balance
  • Cycling is a sport that takes time and commitment, but do not make it your entire life. Set clear boundaries of when you’ll ride and when you’ll spend time with your family and friends.

  • Learning How to Ride
  • If you haven’t been on a bike since you were a kid, picking up cycling as a hobby is a great resolution. Visit our blog to learn some beginner biker tips for newbies.
