5 useful tips to cycling in Summer


Now that summer is around the corner most people might let cycling take the back seat for a while. Here's a list of 5 tips that might help keep cycling on your fitness regime for the next couple of months.

1. Avoid wearing dark coloured cycling apparel
Dark colours will absorb more heat, and you really donÌ¢åÛåªt want that. Wearing light colours will reduce the effect of heat due to sunlight. Making sure your jerseys are well ventilated will also help.

2. Always stay hydrated.
This goes without saying. It is extremely vital to stay hydrated irrespective of how hot it is. This article on Hydration should give you a better idea on how you can manage this. Carry as much water with you as possible as well. You will also need to ensure your sports drinks/fluids have the right amount of salt.

3. Ride out before the sun comes up.
Nothing like beating the heat by beating the sun. Try and finish most of your ride before the sun comes up. If you can finish around 70% of your planned route before the sun comes up, you should have a nice enjoyable ride. (Update) Using a little sunscreen will help keep you safe from UV rays. Riding with a pair of cycling sunglasses will help once the sun comes up as well.

4. Use cycling gloves to prevent sweaty handlebars
In addition to making your ride more comfortable, cycling gloves also absorb sweat from your palms. The last thing you want is for your hands to slip off the handlebar while riding.

5. Carry towels and/or tissues or headbands
YouÌ¢åÛåªre going to sweat whether you like it or not. Use your towels at stops or whenever you decide to rest. This will definitely make your ride more comfortable.
