There are three types of cycling, the first is leisure riding, the second is training with a goal, and the third is competition. The purpose of all kinds of cycling is very different.
The first type of leisure riding is the simplest, you can ride alone, ride a bike, and wander around: you can also go with friends and friends, don’t ask why and where you go, you can stop and stop, you can do all kinds of corruption, you can Taking pictures in various poses, various facial expressions, scissors hands, crossed legs, nonsense. . . Hip-hop is a lot of fun. . . Don’t ask me why I’m happy.
The second type of zipper training is generally for riders who are more passionate and capable. In order to complete: such as 200 kilometers, 300 kilometers, and 400 kilometers to prove yourself, the road is not for the scenery, but for the goal all the way forward. Under the sweat and scorching sun, don’t give up until you reach your goal.
The third type of competition is a challenge to prove the limit of one’s ability, just to show one’s best side, being able to play with many masters is extraordinary in itself, even being the last one is a rare experience.
Let me share with you some small experiences, which may be helpful for you to ride a bicycle: For those who do not wear locked shoes, some small details are as follows.
1.Please pay attention to shoe laces, this is the most easily overlooked one—-shoe laces float freely outside, and sometimes hooking the chain plate, there are unexpected troubles, the correct way is to wear shoes The strap should be pinned inside the two or three layers where the laces intersect so that there is no chance to hang on the chainset.
2.Be careful with the brakes — use the front brake a lot.
3.Sun protection arm sleeves, leg sleeves, and sun protection are eternal topics, and it is a dilemma for everyone.
4.Drinking water and sweating while cycling is nothing more than normal. Drinking water is essential, but there is something to be said, a lot of salt is taken away by sweating, so drinking water alone is obviously not enough. It is best to put a pack of rehydration salts into the kettle, which is economical and cost-effective, and the effect is very good.
5.When you are free, consciously anticipate emergencies, make a plan yourself, and be prepared, such as broken tires, brake failures, machine failures, etc. This will prevent many accidents from being at a loss and not knowing how to deal with them, and losing the best remedy at good timing.
6.This may be one of the most neglected by most people, but it is the most important two links: do warm-up before cycling — also called warm-up, and cool down after cycling — also called relaxation. In fact, these two links determine how long and how long your sports career will be and avoid injuries. Many people use slow cycling instead of warming up. This is very bad behavior because the muscles used by cycling are only part of the muscles of the calf and calf — and the warm-up exercise is the whole body. It is a great misunderstanding to use slow cycling to wake up the exercise muscles. This bad habit is easy to get entangled in the excessive exercise of some muscles, leading to numbness and cramps.
The warm-up is divided into three stages:
The first stage is to move the muscles, starting with small arms, thighs, and legs. At this time, gymnastics in elementary and middle schools are the best example.
The second stage is to increase the activity, swing the legs, move the arms more substantially, swing the arms from side to side and touch the opposite toes.
The third stage is more extensive movement, rapid leg raising and stepping, hot dance movements, and dynamic movements.
The purpose is to start the body with low-intensity activities until the body adapts to a certain intensity of exercise, until it adapts to a certain intensity of exercise, so that muscle toughness and strength can be maximized while cycling and unnecessary accidental injuries can be avoided. So what does the back cover do after riding the bike? Is it as simple as taking a shower and eating after stopping? Obviously not, it is still necessary to cool down first, stop exercising suddenly, and enter the cold state directly, the impact on the body is not inferior to cycling without warming up. How to cool down? Just do the warm-up trilogy in reverse.
