E78: Cycling 101 | Choices | Cost | Fits | Rules of the Road
Jul 6th, 2017 by fatslowtriathleteshow
Yes, it is true! The whole episode this week is on cycling. We have been getting requests to go to square one on some of the disciplines we cover on this show (swimming, cycling, running, trail running, etc.) so this week we will be talking about cycling and how, as a beginner, you navigate the oftentimes confusing world of something as simple as riding a bike.
Topics will be:
- Choosing the right bike type
- Calculating how much to spend
- The bike fit
- Gears, Suspensions, Handlebars, and Brakes
- Taking the Test Ride
- Steps for Beginners on the Road or Trail
We are hoping that this is a useful show for everyone, even those that have been cycling quite awhile. We can't wait for the cards and letters from the few that might disagree with some points or views we have, but that's how we learn right!?
