Tip: A great way to get into shape is to keep your gears relatively easy and ‘spin’ along with a cadence of 80-90 rpm. You should still be able to have a conversation with your riding buddies. Try and stay seated for any climbs pushing your butt back into the seat and shift through the gears accordingly. If you haven’t ridden for a while take the first few training rides to get used to your bike and how the gears, brakes and handling of the bike are on the road.
