Drew's Daily Cycling Tip

Ride More To Feel Better - If you’re getting into cycling and feeling sore when you ride, it may be because you’re not riding enough. You need to ride several days a week for a few weeks to build up your pedaling muscles and get used to sitting on the saddle. This will also benefit your cardiovascular fitness and improve your flexibility making riding feel more natural. So, stick with it!

Cycling Glossary - Word of the Day

platform damping

A feature found on many mountain bike shocks and some suspension forks. Platform damping stiffens the suspension for efficient pedaling, while allowing the shock to stay active to absorb larger bumps on the trail.
