Drew's Daily Cycling Tip

Travel With Tools - When preparing your bike travel kit, pack all the tools needed to build your bike. And, be sure to pack some spare parts in the event of a breakdown, too. There's nothing worse than taking your bike on a trip only to not be able to ride it because something broke. We recommend bringing spare tubes, a spare tire, patch kit, several spokes, a brake and shift cable, chain pins and a seatpost binder bolt (secures the seatpost in the frame). A nice trick is packing an inexpensive pair of gloves in your tool kit. Put these on for assembly and packing and you'll save yourself a lot of hand scrubbing.

Cycling Glossary - Word of the Day

RPM

For Revolutions Per Minute, this is how you calculate your "cadence," or pedaling speed. Simply count the number of complete pedal revolutions (one side) you do in 15 seconds and multiply by 4 to determine how fast you're spinning. A good target for fitness riders is to maintain 70 to 90 RPM.
