5 THINGS I WISH I'D KNOWN WHEN I STARTED CYCLING
Posted on August 01 2017
1. EMBRACE LYCRA
When I first started, I never thought I would get over my fear of 'looking like a cyclist' and eventually embrace walking around my local supermarket in full kit.
2. IT'S A GREAT WAY TO TRAVEL
Cycling has turned into my preferred form of everyday transport, and it's the ideal speed to discover a new place on holiday.
Everywhere is within cycling distance, and you just need time (and sometimes a bit of training).
3. I'D BECOME SO ACTIVE
Becoming a cyclist has lead me to live an active lifestyle even if I never win any competitions.
I've become someone who prioritises getting up early to swim, cycle, run or do yoga before work, and I think of a long cycle ride as a treat... yet it still surprises me when new friends describe me as sporty!
4. LOOK AFTER YOUR KIT
Wash & dry your chamois well. It will give you great comfort.
5. YOU WILL SMILE MORE!!!
