Getting Started with Cycling: Part One

m1r0sItalian Bike Shop, Italian Bikes

Cycling is one of the heartiest and best activities to adopt, especially if you’re looking to become more physically active.  One of the best aspects of cycling is how it is open to just about everyone, from seasoned pros to those that are just beginning to get their feet wet.

If you’re a newbie, it’s important to take the proper safety precautions when you’re about to get started cycling and one of the best ways to start is with a helmet to protect your head.  You’re going to want to find one that fits comfortably but securely around your head, so it’s best to find one at a local reputable shop versus online.  There are countless styles to choose from, from brightly colored to improve visibility to ones that are designed to be aerodynamic.

As with the helmets, you want to find cycling clothes that emphasize comfort.  There are people who prefer the lycra style while others stick to city fashion.  Look for clothes that provide water resistance and ones that have well placed pockets so you can easily grab a snack.  Cycling trousers with a chamois are also important for your undercarriage, as you’ll quickly realize the more you continue to cycle.
