When I recently decided to get a lot more exercise by making sure that I had the right kind of a bicycle to ride regularly, I was able to pull my old bike out of storage. The bike needed a bit of work, but for the most part it was in good working order. I loved having such a wonderful bike ready when I needed it, but I did take some time to choose a few new parts for it.
Out of everything that I wanted to fix about the bike, I was really set on getting a different type of saddle for it. The one that I had used in the past had been so uncomfortable that it had been really challenging for me to be comfortable on the bike at all. I had to look at a lot of saddles just so that I would be able to find one that would be absolutely excellent.
It was really wonderful to be able to find a saddle that would work so well on my bike as well as keeping me comfortable. I managed to find one by looking at a lot of different types of bicycle saddles for men. The one that I have now is so much more comfortable so I can ride my bike for a very long time without any discomfort.
Now that it is fall and the days are getting shorter, it is even more important for me to make sure that I am able to ride my bike safely during my commute. With it being dark in the morning as I am riding to work, I have to do whatever I can to make it so that drivers can see me. Too often bicyclists get hit by cars just because they aren’t visible to the drivers.
To prevent this sort of problem, I make sure that I wear a lot of bright colors and some different reflectors as well. I have also put some different lights on my bike so that the bicycle itself is something that drivers are most likely to see. Bicycle tire lights have been especially good for this since these are very bright and obvious even on a dark and rainy morning.
With so many great safety lights all around my bike, it is wonderful for me to be able to ride to work in the morning. I don’t have to worry nearly the same way about what might happen to me when I am riding. Staying seen and making it to work with ease is wonderful especially when I know that I am getting exercise each morning.
Even though fall is here now, I am determined not to give up my cycling as the colder weather comes in. I know that it is easy for cyclists to just stop riding for a while because the weather gets cold, but I don’t want to get out of the habit. I know that it is very important for me to get out there and enjoy the outdoors during every part of the year.
I am excited to be able to spend a great deal of time out cycling this fall and winter which is why I have started to look for different types of biking clothing that can keep me warm while I bike in colder conditions. I know that I cannot wear the same clothing I wear when I go biking in the warm days of summer, since I will surely freeze if I am outside like this.
I have managed to find wonderful winter cycling clothing that should be all that I need to stay warm. With any luck, I will be able to enjoy much more cycling this winter just because I will be prepared with all of the different types of clothing that I will need to have during this time of the year.
