24 Tips to Improve your Cycling

Our guide 'How to become an Expert Road Cyclist' by our head coach and founder Martin Birney will help you take your cycling to the next level. Many cyclists start out with bags of enthusiasm and are prepared to put the work in to get a lot out of the sport, but sadly make elementary errors which hold them back.

This road cycle guide will set you on the right road to becoming a better cyclist. It covers the basics as well as providing tips for better cycling training sessions. Our road cycle guide will show you how to:

  • Choose the right bike - do you know how high to put the saddle or the ideal width of the handlebars?
  • Use Gears and brakes to your advantage - it is surprising how many people use their gears and brakes incorrectly, especially when faced with challenging climbs.
  • Ride safely on roads - this element of cycling cannot be stressed enough
  • Ride better in a group - how to cycle in a group is important. This road cycle guide will show you how to do it.
  • Select the right equipment for a ride - did you know that glasses were essential for cycle training and not just to look cool?
  • Eat the right food for better cycling performance
  • Maintain your bike
  • Motivate yourself for longer rides

 

What do I get in my Free Road Cycle Guide

Paul English

"Since being with SportActive, last April 2013, my cycling has transformed. I am cycling 5 years and competing 3 years and I have to say I have learnt more in my one week's cycling with Sport Active than I have since starting cycling. Everything about the cycling week was amazing from the weather, good roads, hospitality, Flora's organisation of the week, the mechanical back up to Martins great attention to detail. I had the privilege of being coached by Martin and I really believe it is his sound advice discipline and coaching skills that has helped me improve from being dropped at races to winning my first A4 race and being placed twice this year."
