HOW TO PROPERLY ADJUST YOUR SEAT HEIGHT

Why?Sitting at the right height eliminates pain from pedalling in an uncomfortable position.

THE RIGHT TYRE PRESSURE

Why? For more comfortable rides, and to make your bike less likely to experience a punctured tyre.

Here's the recommended tyre pressure based on the bike load (the rider's weight + luggage):

65 to 80 kg: 4 bars

80 to 100 kg: 5 bars

GET STARTED WITH YOUR FIRST BIKE TOUR

YOU'RE SETTING OUT FOR A RIDE OR LONGER TOUR ON YOUR RIVERSIDE BIKE

 

Here are some tips for you:

 

1- YOUR SAFETY

Wear a certified helmet, purchased recently — the head is impacted in one out of every two falls!!

IMPORTANT: Helmets have a limited effective lifespan, even if they haven't been involved in a crash! Find out more when making your purchase.

 

- Set off with a bike that is properly adjusted and well maintained.

- Take along a mobile phone (charged!) to be able to make a call should you need help.

- Map out your itinerary ahead of time so you can as much as possible take bike trials and paths free of cars.

- Take a first aid kit (in a bag under the saddle, for example)

- If you will be riding in the dark, make sure you have front and back lights with you. 

 

2- FOR YOUR COMFORT

 

- If getting started with cycling: Gradually lengthen your rides, starting out at one hour.

- Wear clothing that is appropriate for the length of your ride, plus gloves.

- Don't try to push hard on the pedals. Instead, switch gears so you can pedal more easily and faster. You'll be able to go further for longer.

- Depending on the weather, bring along clothing to protect you from the cold or rain.

- Don't forget to do some stretches after your ride.

- STAY HYDRATED!! 

 

3- ALWAYS TAKE A FLAT TYRE REPAIR KIT WITH YOU!

 

- A tyre pump. Some pumps will fit onto the frame's screws for the water bottle holder.

-3 tyre levers, one inner tube, a Riverside 100 15 mm spanner: which you can fit into a saddle bag. 

Learn to make repairs yourself!! Watch the following video.

 

4- DRINK REGULARLY

 

- Attach a water bottle holder and bottle to your bike (so you can drink as you ride), or carry a water bottle in a backpack.

- Remember to drink water regularly (every 20 minutes and at least half a litre per hour)! 

 

5- REMEMBER TO EAT

 

- Take along some energy bars (you can carry them in a saddle bag or handlebar bag)

- Don't wait until you feel hungry to eat. Eat something every hour to give your muscles more energy.
