10 Tips for Endurance Cycling

We are now 3 weeks into 2023! I don't believe we need to wait on a specific date to make a change. However, if you made some goals starting at the first of the year, how is your progress? Experts say it takes 21 days to make a habit stick. Even if you aren't where you are hoping to be, it's never too late to start to make a change.  

 

Read below for 10 tips to help prepare for Open Range.

 

  1. Build a consistent training schedule: Incorporate both high-intensity and low-intensity workouts, and make sure to include rest days.

  2. Gradually increase your training: Avoid increasing your training too quickly, as this can lead to injury or burnout.

  3. Incorporate interval training: High-intensity interval training (HIIT) can help improve your endurance and power.

  4. Cross-train: Include activities such as swimming, running, or strength training to improve overall fitness and reduce the risk of injury.

  5. Fuel properly: Eating a well-balanced diet with enough carbohydrates and protein to support your training is important for endurance cycling.

  6. Proper recovery: Allow your body time to recover by getting enough sleep, stretching and keeping hydrated.

  7. Get a proper bike fit: A proper bike fit can help you ride more efficiently and comfortably, reducing the risk of injury and improving performance.

  8. Train with a group: Training with a group can help push you to work harder, and can also provide a sense of camaraderie and accountability.

  9. Set specific goals: Setting specific, measurable, and attainable goals will help you stay motivated and track your progress.

  10. Have fun: Remember that cycling is supposed to be enjoyable, so make sure to enjoy the ride!
