Starting spring riding - some tips
The Gazette's fitness uberguru Jill Barker's tuesday fitness column looked at getting started outside in the spring.
Tip one: don't overdo it, build the mileage gradually, 50 km rides might seem like a moderate and easy distance, but not if the last one was in September and you're riding with some less-eager types.
The next tip is to ride safe: keep good situational awareness and be careful at intersections (this may involve stopping).
The whole article can be read at this link, and do it soon because the gazoo only keeps the Ms Barker's 3 most recent columns. We book mark her column and read them every week, because the information is always good quality.
