Light Your Bike Up Like Rudolph!

December 20, 2012

holiday light bikeHoliday lights, whimsical accents and outdoor Christmas decorations are trademarks of the season.  One of the best way to enjoy all the glittering Holiday splendor is to view a brilliant light display by bike.  See your neighborhood as it sparkles.  Enjoy nighttime views and the ambiance of your town.

But nighttime riding doesn’t have to occur only during the holidays.  There are benefits to training at night for cyclist.  Switching up the training regime can freshen your attitude, spark some fun, and maintain fitness.

The trick to capturing the benefits is to outfit your bike with a good light system.  Whether you are bike commuting, going for a holiday stroll, or getting in base miles, being visible is critical. Here are some tips to getting the right bike parts.

A Well Lit Bike

  • You will want lights for the front of your bike.  Consider having multiple lights for the front of your bike.  One on your helmet so you can shine side roads and traffic and have a second light on your handlebars so you can see at least 10 ft. or more in front of you.
  • For the rear of your bike, opt for a rear red light- particularly one that blinks. A blinking red light is much more likely to get the attention of a passing motorist who might otherwise not notice you.

A Well Lit Cyclist

  • Purchase apparel that is visible.  There are options to choose from including vests and ankle bands.
  • Also, reflective tape is a good idea. 3M makes black reflective tape that is great to put on black wheels. You do not notice it during the day and it shows up white at night.

So, let there be light!  Enjoy strolling through your neighborhood enjoying the Holiday season or prepare for training in the New Year.  Be safe and have fun by lighting up your bike!


5 Training Tips to Get You Through the Holiday Season

December 6, 2012

Healthy Holidays! Holiday parties, shorter days, cooler temps, all temptations pulling us away from time on our bikes.  While this time of year poses unique challenges, there are ways to maintain fitness, reduce the holiday stress levels, and prepare for next year’s riding season.

  1. Eat Well: The holidays offer irresistible food temptations adding extra pounds to our waste lines and robbing us of precious energy.  Instead of reaching for the holiday goodies, opt to choose your bike nutrition when you need it most- on the bike.  Being mindful of your food choices can positively affect your energy levels and help maintain your ability to ride and perform better.
  2. Buddy Up: Shorter days creates less motivation and time to ride.  Combat the winter woes by asking a friend to join you for a trainer session. Committing to a time, place, and a friend creates structure and accountability.
  3. Get Visual: Trying something new like a training video or dvd can add a new dimension to your riding schedule keeping it fresh and inspiring you to get on the bike even during the hectic holidays.
  4. Shop Ride: Join us on Sunday mornings at Peak Cycles in Golden, Colorado at 9:00 AM for our shop rides.  Nothing is more fun that joining a group of passionate cyclist out for a morning ride.
  5. Relax: If you just can’t find the time or motivation to ride during the holiday season, at least feed your velo passion with pictures of new road bikes , new mountain bikes, and cool bike parts.  It will feed your spirit and breathe life into next year’s bike season.

Maintaining a holiday fitness plan doesn’t have be hard.  Be flexible, mix it up, and enjoy!
