CYCLING IS BASED

it took 26 years of my miserable life before I realised that cycling is based as frick. I'm no longer fat and I actually enjoy cycling.

    I love cycling, I might start again when I'm better at rooning and have more strength to add it to my training. Too many people here drive like c**ts though, and all the quiet country roads and off-road trails are up massive hills.

      Riding up hills is the whole point. If your just cruising along pedaling 100w you aren't gaining shit, you need to actually push yourself on a bike to make gains

      If there are hills, there are also downhills. I love my local trail; asphalt and gravel up the top, then sweet sweet single track all the way down.

      That's a full body wiener ring. Prevents your balls from retracting.

        Actually true. The belt keeps the "ball cave" in your adomen tightly closed wjich subsequently equals no ball retraction.

      Not enough bike discussion on IST. Its addicting, fun, relaxing, and great for cardio on an intense ride, or zone 2 exercise on a leisurely ride. I try to do at least 3 shorter rides during the week when I have time, and at least one longer (>2 hour) rides on weekends.

      Nice bike. I'd take that steel over some expensive disposable carbon fiber bike any day. I've got a really shitty old Trek hybrid I keep in my car trunk as a beater bike. I love riding it and passing chubbyfat morons in lycra with expensive ass road bikes. 95% of cycling performance is your fitness levels.

        A lightweight road bike is fun to ride. Steal is real for commuting, but there is something about the accelerate, responsiveness and speed of a road bike, you can feel the power of your legs making more of a difference

          Go with a short wheelbase steel track bike for a fun as frick commuter. The geometry is more aggressive than road bikes and really responsive.

      Why do they only have disc brakes on mountain bikes, those things are way better than the shit that grips the rims of the wheels.

    I lived here almost ten years before I got a bike, and now my whole perspective of the place has changed. Everywhere is almost instantly in reach, I can be on the other side of the city or in the odd places where public transport is clunky, in no time. My car is parked for free next to a bus stop out in the suburbs

    what is a good distance to ride? I'm up to 50 miles max.

    • 1 week ago

      50 miles is pretty good, are you focusing on how hard you are going as well? Going up hills, doing sprints, do interval power efforts ect? Those are where the gains on a bike is really made.

      For me, 50 miles is about the max where the ride is still fun. Most of my rides are about 30km, but including multiple steep hills and some sprints. Pic related was last weekend. I suffered for the last 20km

      I've heard that if you have the fitness levels to make it to at least 30 miles, you can make it to 100 miles as long as you have enough food/electrolyte/water intake. So focus on what you're eating and drinking during the ride and you'll be able to go as far as you want.

        my longest ride is 80km and this is true in spirit but not always, to ride another 80km i would have needed to sit down for a few hours and eat a big meal and ideally sleep

      After 40 miles, it's more how much time you want to commit than anything else

    I too took a long time to get into cycling. Idk why it’s considered a pussy sport. Youre out in the elements careening down a hill at 40 mph+ on a metal pipe and 2 wheels. More fun than any rollercoaster

    yeah I have a 20 year old cannondale road bike I use as my only form of transportation outside of public transit because even though I’m in my early 30s I’m too afraid to ever drive a car. I ride 2000-2500 miles a year or so

    I have some old cheap broke bike that I wanted to repair for the experience but apparently it'd be cheaper to just buy a new bike. What's the cheapest bike for a homie that just wants to start riding?

      Are passable road bikes expensive? I can sort of understand the price of mountain bikes with fancy suspension but road bikes have none of that and if your aren't super serious I doubt the weight even matters much
