Cyclists are generally people who are interested in a healthy lifestyle, often participating in several sports and activities. Watching what we eat, how we train, and taking an interest in our overall health is increasingly popular. Indoor spin classes are popular all over the world, and the computer age has led to ‘Fit Bits’ being worn on the wrist, helping to provide data on how we’re doing throughout the day.
It makes sense then for us to capture the knowledge of our team members, to bring you great advice and information on how they manage their health and lifestyle, so that you can benefit in your own cycling lifestyle.
We’ll be producing several articles, blogs and recipes, focusing on this critical area of modern life … on and off the bike. Take a look below at the informative articles from our team.
