Going for a good ride, is one of our favourite ways to spend our free time. The fresh air, the country roads, the big hills to zoom down. It’s a pretty perfect weekend activity.
As with any exercise however, the less you do, the less you feel like doing and when you’ve not been able to go out for a few weeks, it can suddenly feel like a big effort to get back on the bike and out for 40km day ride.
The best way to avoid this is to keep up your enthusiasm between rides in any way you can. Whether it be through exercise, socialising or keeping up with other cyclist’s rides, you don’t need to permanently be on a bike to keep the love going.
Here are our favourite ways to get pumped for our next ride, when we haven’t got the time to spend our days on a bike.
