A new year can bring all sorts of new and exciting challenges. If you love cycling and are looking for some adventure, we’ve come up with a list of things you should do on and with your bike this year! There’s something for everyone from the aspiring pro to the lazy Sunday cyclist. How many of these do you think you could do?
Bike for charity
If you haven’t already, get on your bike for charity. There are loads of biking fund raisers out there, you’ll feel great doing something you love for a cause you care about. If you can’t find something in your local area, why not have ago at arranging something yourself!
If you love being active, no matter what the activity, why not push yourself and sign up for a triathlon. If you are up for the challenge, make sure you leave yourself with enough time to prepare and train.
Teach someone how to cycle
Teaching someone else how to ride a bike is incredibly rewarding.
Join a cycling social group
There are cycling groups all over the country. These are a great way to meet people with similar interests to you. You’ll gain a group of people to go cycling with and make some friends too!
Go on a cycling holiday
Let’s face it, the weather in the UK isn’t the best and even in the summer it can be lukewarm at best. If you crave warmer climates to ride your bike in, why not try a cycling holiday this year. There are plenty of destinations well known to be great for cycling holidays such as Mallorca, Croatia, Austria and America.
Take a bike maintenance class
If you are a relatively new bike owner and aren’t sure of all the maintenance you should be carrying out on your bike, take a bike maintenance class to brush up on your knowledge and skills.
Cycle to work
If you are a weekend rider and never commute by bike or just like cycling off road, give the bike commute a chance, you might actually like it.
Go off road!
And if you only use your bike to commute, go off road!
