Cycling is an outstanding means of physical activity. Whether you cycle to compete or just hop on your bike for a little exercise, cycling is an excellent aerobic exercise which will build muscle at the same time. Injuries are very common among cyclists, primarily involving the knee. The number one way to prevent injuries is to make sure your bike is the right fit. The first step towards riding injury free all summer long is to ensure your frame size, saddle configuration (height, position and tilt) and handlebar position are correct. Another key component to staying injury free is safety equipment. Every cyclist should wear a helmet however, bike shorts and shoes can also play a roll in preventing injuries.
