Common mistakes to avoid while cycling
"We make a lot of mistakes as new cyclists, and they can happen at any time."
We make a lot of mistakes as new cyclists, and they can happen at any time. Some are unintentional, as we need time and experience to learn, while others are intentional, as a result of overconfidence.
Here are some common mistakes to avoid when getting started on a bicycle:
Aside from soft tires, saddle height is one of the main reasons you may be inefficient as a rider, as a saddle that is too high or too low prevents the power from the legs from being properly delivered.
Keep your heel on the pedal as you ride. Your leg should be almost straight when you reach the bottom of the pedal stroke, but not quite.
For runners, 'hitting the wall' refers to the point at which the body runs out of fuel/energy and comes to a complete stop.
Bring some refreshments if you're going on a long bike ride. If you're exercising, eat something every hour or so and keep a filled water bottle in the holder beneath your saddle.
Take a break and stretch your legs if you're feeling dizzy or exhausted.
Lacking essential accessories
Different riding disciplines necessitate different helmets—a road biking helmet, for example, isn't appropriate for downhill mountain biking.
A local bike shop can assist you in selecting the appropriate helmet for your riding style.
A bike lock, a bike light, waterproof clothing, biking gloves and padded shorts, and sunscreen and sunglasses are some other essentials to consider.
If you want a smooth, comfortable ride, you must learn how to navigate your gears.
Most bikes allow you to shift on both your front and back wheels, depending on what's going on in front of you on the road.
If you're going downhill, select a larger, higher gear by combining the largest front ring chain size (typically the lever on the left side of the handlebars) with the smallest rear cog (the lever on the right side).
No Spares or Tools
When going on a ride, make sure you have a few essential spares and tools that will get you home if you have a problem.
You should always bring the following items with you, which can be stored in a saddlebag under your saddle or distributed in your pockets: 2 inner tubes, Tire levers, Patches (the instant stick-on type are the best), Mini Pump, and Multi-tool (ideally with chain link extractor).
