Smart Watches Best
In recent years, the popularity and development of cycling around the world has attracted more and more groups to join the cycling team. This is because the bicycle is not only a means of transportation, but also has the effect of exercising the body.
For every ride, we want to get the best riding experience, so if you want to get the best experience, don't make these low-level mistakes before riding. Today, the editor will take stock of a few things that should be avoided before riding for your reference.
Excessive intake of high-calorie, high-fiber substances
Before riding, you should eat some easy-to-digest foods. High-fat and high-fiber foods are not good choices. Consuming high-fiber foods, such as salads or non-starchy vegetables, takes time to digest and therefore takes longer to store in the stomach.
Similarly, foods containing high fat content should not be ingested. Because these foods are not digested quickly, it is not good for you who want to maintain a good physical condition before riding. This means that there is no way for these things to be immediately converted into energy and transmitted to your muscles. Instead, you can eat some carbohydrates or protein.
Drinking too much water
Water is a necessity for cycling, but too much of anything is a constant rule. If you have no way to replenish water in time on the road, you may be tempted to fill it with two or three bottles before talking, but this is definitely wrong. Your stomach and kidneys can't take the strain all of a sudden, drinking too much water just makes you feel bloated, and you're always thinking about going to the bathroom while riding. And drinking too much water can cause hyponatremia, although this rarely happens, but the clinical symptoms it causes include dizziness, fatigue, and nausea.
The best way is to slowly ingest about 450 grams of water 1-2 hours before riding, so that it is almost exhausted before riding. During the ride, just have a drink or two every 10 to 20 minutes to replenish water properly and avoid dehydration.
No bike inspection
For those who have a long-distance riding plan, it is really not a good thing to find that the brake system fails after riding for 20 minutes. It is recommended to quickly check your bicycle accessories before riding, such as tire aging, shifting system operation, brake pad wear, or lock shoe cleats, etc. These conditions will cause danger to your riding.
If you're going on a bike tour, it's a good idea to check it out a few days in advance, and leave time to go to a bike shop to find a mechanic if there's a problem.
Of course, stretching isn't a bad thing in itself, but it's not a good idea to do some static stretches when your muscles aren't fully engaged. There's some debate about this, but most studies show that static stretching before exercise can actually weaken your muscles.
Do some simple stepping exercises 10 minutes before riding to warm up. Of course, static stretching is good for cyclists, but it's best done after a ride.
Not revealing your destination
Imagine that if you fall and get injured or get lost, or even have a traffic accident, you need to take preventive measures in advance. Before riding, let your friends and family know where you are going, and at the same time tell them how long you plan to ride. If you are really injured, someone in the know can find you quickly.
