Gearing Up!

Consider the size of the bike that you need and the style as well. What type of bike do you want? Make sure above everything else that you get the right size bike for height. A bike that is too small is to be avoided. What you might do is go to a decent sporting goods store and get measured up for a properly sized bike. If you see one you like go ahead and pick it up. Alternatively, consider looking for a used ride. Used bikes can be bought very inexpensively!

Some bikers wear specialty bike riding shoes. If you have the jingle, go ahead and buy yourself a shiny new pair. After all, you are in this thing to see it through to the new you. As for myself, when I need a boost I up a new pair of shoes now and again! Why not biking shoes? Hey..you will certainly look and feel the part of a serious biking contender!

What You May Also Need

When planning for a nice long bike ride make sure you take water and low-fat snacks with you. Please avoid the sugary ‘energy’ drinks. They’re full of sugar and/or other counterproductive sweeteners. Think of your ride as an adventure. Make sure the snacks you pack are nutritious. You can stop at the half-way point in your ride and have a little picnic! Make sure you have some way to carry your gear easily. You may want to outfit your bike with a storage rack or drink holder. A backpack is always a good choice for those on the go.

You might do well to pick up a small first aid kit for your journeys. Throw some eye drops and lip balm in for good measure. You’re on a mission now :). A little preparation will keep you on the road longer..burning more calories!

Plan your ride if you are more comfortable with a known route. How about measuring the distance of your rides with an odometer? What a great feeling to know you’ve put several miles behind you! Increasing the distance you ride over time is a great goal setting exercise. Write your achievements down. Bask in your new found energy levels knowing you are well on your way to the new you!
