Responsible riding

17/04/2020

Riding a bike is a great way to aid your physical and mental health. Provided you follow the advice on social distancing and good hygiene, it is important to remain active when you can.

British Cycling provide some great information on how to ride responsibly and ways to keep active for all ages and abilities. Follow their guidance & FAQ’s here – British Cycling advice.

British Cycling and Zwift have launched an eight-week virtual ride series, which will allow people to ride against others on the popular online training platform. Full details are available here.

Meanwhile, the HSBC UK Ready Set Ride programme contains free, fun resources which allow parents to teach their children the basics of riding a bike. Full information is available here.

Sport England is encouraging people to share their own home workouts using the hashtag #StayInWorkOut.

Why not take on a virtual challenge. There are lots of websites that provide virtual challenges and medals for completion – you can choose your distance and can complete this either outside or using an indoor exercise bike if you have one at your own pace.

If you have a back garden, why not set out a skills course for a personal or family challenge.

  • You can use sports cones, plant pots or whatever you have available to create a slalom course
  • See how long can you balance using a track stand technique
  • Learn how to bunny hop or front wheel lift

Whatever you decide to do, ride responsibly and keep safe.
