    Whether you're looking to cruise on roads, tear up trails, or race, one has to keep a note on how to get started. But most important, do some research, find a bike shop, and try to work with a professional to get what you're looking for.

  • What you need to check before buying the cycle:

    While picking up your new cycle, please spend some time as different brands may have identical components or frame materials in similar price ranges.

  • A suitable helmet for every cyclists:

    If you're new to the roads, this is almost more essential than the bike you're riding. Helmets can make all the difference when it comes to safety-but only if you wear them right.

    Cycle should be comfortable

    Make sure you are not on an ill-fitting ride that will keep you off the roads because of discomfort. Move your seat up so that your feet reach the pedals with only a very slight bend. This is the proper positioning on the bike.

  • Choose your routes wisely:

    At least in the first couple of weeks, avoid big hills and overly ambitious adventures.

  • Cycling Jersey:

    Wearing the right clothing will make you feel comfortable. Do invest on a good cycling jersey. These jerseys come with pockets that let you store your money, nutrition and other valuable safely. For beginners, it is better to have padded shorts. If you're going to spend endless hours on the saddle, a good padded short is a must. It will keep you comfortable.

  • Buy the required tools:

    Eye wear

    Most of you might assume that cycling glasses is certainly not that important. But these glasses play an important part as much as your cycling jersey, tights or any other accessories.


    When you fall, before your head hits the ground, your hands are likely to come in the way. Invest in a good pair of cycling gloves.

    Carry a puncture kit (tyre levers, patches or new inner tube, and pump) always with you. Whether a short or long ride, punctures come without a warning and take you by surprise when you least expect them.

    Hydration is equally important. So don't forget to hydrate too! Carry one bottle with water.

    I hope this article would be of great help. If you think of any tip that should be on this list, do leave a comment and I will surely incorporate your feedback into the article.
