Group cycling

cykla i grupp grupptempo

Why are you cycling in a group? You have fun and it’s social, it’s like a cocktail party or speed dating on wheels and you meet many like-minded people. In addition, the person (s) in question takes up to 60% of the wind resistance, which means that you get longer and faster with lower energy consumption.

In addition to the social and nice relationships that occur in a cling we also help. And it’s not just the wind that we helped with.

If someone gets puncture or worries, the group will stay and we will help to correct the problem.

The track applies to normal traffic rules. Additionally, consideration is given to common sense and a long way to go.

Always be clear and predictable in the cliff, do not just keep track of the previous cyclist, but watch a bit and go to the sides as well as participate in the cliff’s snack through fuss and hay.

During the trip you should drink liquid (water / sports drink).

Have with eg some bananas or powerbars.
The carbohydrates in the muscles suffice a maximum of two hours.

NOTE Eat and drink at the back of the grove, drop a bottle, then someone else can swallow.

Quickly on the slopes – right on the slope – slowly up!
We do not burn the gun in the wrong places, but optimize the energy in the group.
Take it easy, it’s where you get tired.
If you have to stand up in the back or to stretch your back, the risk is great for shooting the bike one meter backwards. Therefore, switch up two hacks and push on the pedal while standing up.
When you get up over the crest, take it easy so everyone comes up before the cruise. Rubber band effect is undesirable.
The first ones should ALWAYS step in the downhill, so the back will not catch up.

You have to keep track of the person who is a park mate, she / she sucks after shouting LUCKA !!

At exit from crossing / roundabout / red light etc slow slow speed increases so rubber band effect is avoided.

How long should you stay at the front and take the wind?
Those who start to feel tired and tired of the round suit only the short pulling work in the front.

Important to remember

– Hold the line
Remember to always “keep the line”, ie drive straight when driving in a group. Never make fast sideways or brakes. Because the cyclists are so tight in a clutch, a surprising move can cause a cyclist to lose control.

In order for the group cycling to work safely, it is also necessary for the cyclists to pay attention to possible obstacles. As a first-class cyclist it is important to lift your eyes and track along the road to detect holes, gravel, stones, other vehicles, pedestrians, etc. Warnings for these obstacles are then conveyed back into the hand signals group so that you can take a safe road past them.

Setting the bike correctly (sitting position):
Angle upwards when sitting with stretched legs on the saddle and
the heel of the pedal.

Relax in the shoulders, do not stomach the arms to hold up the upper body.

That you always before round look over its bike, good tire, good chain and adjusted gear system,

Include hose, pump tire collector and a combination tool.

Clothes

After the weather.

Three-layer principles:
Moisturizing closest to the body
An insulating as well as a wind or / and rain protective layer

Tightening clothing not too big and flattering.

Trousers with padding in good fit, so you do not get lost.

Boots with braces are used to get better balance and it facilitates when to perform ’roundabout’.
(There are different types of clogs / pedals)

Rain is not always dense rainwear or even gore-tex the best one will be
too tight The windstopper might be so good releasing the moisture. You have the choice of getting wet or raining.

Feet and hands hardest to keep warm. At minus degrees, you can manage between 2-3 hours before the cold breaks through. Neoprene cover is a good investment.

The bandana helps to keep running sweat down in the eyes but also against sunburn on thin-haired men.
