Bicycle Workouts For Beginners

Okay, so your ready to ride your bike. But you really don’t have much experience and not sure what you should do. You don’t just want to hop on your bike and start riding.

Well, there is such a thing as Bicycle Workouts For Beginners that can help you out.

You know that with any sports they always advice to warm up, no matter what sport you are preparing to do.

Well riding a bike is no exception. You kind of want to do a few warm up exercise before you hop on your bike.

If your young or old, or on the thin side, or the heavy side, if you are tall or short, you should make some time for a few  warm ups.

A warm up will loosen your body and the muscles, it also will help to get the blood flowing thru your body.

The warm up will also let you know what kind of shape you are in. While doing the warm ups keep an eye on how you are feeling, if you are getting tired, is a part of your body hurting, how fast to you start to sweat, do you have too much cloth on.

Just The Simple Things

So we are talking about warming up before hopping on our bike, riding bikes is a physical thing, so you want to be loose and relaxed. Below are just a few simple exercise for Bicycle Workouts For Beginners.

  • Stretch your fingers
  • waist trunks (loosen your back)
  • few squats
  • touch toes
  • stretch your arms

If you’re riding your bike in warm weather you really don’t need a lot of cloth on, so once you start warming up and riding your bike you will probably start to get warmer and maybe start to sweat a little.

These simple warm up exercises are for the average bike rider, I am sure that professional bike riders who ride bikes for a living have a more intense warm up routine, cause these guys ride for several miles so they are pretty much in good shape to begin with.

There are many more exercise that a bike rider can do,  as I mentioned the above are for the beginner or for someone who already has some bike riding experience .  Below are just a few more exercises a bike rider can do to warm up.

  • walking (a block or two)
  • jugging (lightly,as it is a warm up)
  • stationary bike (few minutes)
  • jumping jacks (just a few)

So whatever experience you have with bike riding always remember to take a few minutes to warm up and loosen up your body for a more comfortable bike ride.

The Final Ride

So you have done your warm ups and now your ready to go bike riding.  Well, as a beginner bike rider you don’t have to much time on a bike or on the road.

You are ready to ride, you have your accessories including your water bottle.  It’s funny we talk about warm ups.  But, just by hopping on your bike and slowly going down the street or the road, it can be a warm up on its own.  You don’t have to start riding fast as soon as you get on your bike.

Remember that you are just a beginner, and still getting use to the bike and what accessories you have on your bike. You don’t have to push yourself.

Find a nice, safe or secluded area without to much traffic to ride your bike.  By doing this you can concentrate on riding and not on the traffic.

As a beginner it’s best to try to ride your bike when it is dry outside.  When the streets or roads are wet the brakes may not work as quick or good like they should.  If the roads are wet do not go so fast, this will allow the brakes to stop or slow down the bike safely.

The final thing here is that you get home safely after your bike ride so you can go out for another bike ride.  When you are a beginner you are not trying to compete or race with another bike rider.As you get better and more experience than you might want to try to race or compete with a friend or family member.

SO ENJOY YOUR RIDE.

  1. Hi!
    Thanks for your post! I’ve never been a big bike rider, but this was extremely informative. Like running, warming up before biking is a necessary thing. I remember doing bike rides with my parents growing up and we would just hop on and go for a while until we got tired. For sure, I’m a novice biker. I appreciate your insights! It goes a long way.

  2. I normally just get on the bike and start to ride as I believe riding a bike on its own is an exercise. Mostly a workout for our legs. Performing other type of exercise before a bike ride might not be all that necessary except maybe for professional riders that ride for a living. In that case I can say that exercising before a bike ride might be considered a necessity.

  3. Very interesting your subject.

    From a young age I remember cycling myself, running back in time and reminding me at some point at the end of the ride I had a problem with endurance,

    Proper warm-up I believe will have a good bike ride and what a relaxing ride for riders
