TWO-WHEELED TRAIN­ING

Looking for ways to get fit us­ing a bi­cy­cle? Here are a few op­tions that’ll get you to the front of the pelo­ton:

1/ No bike?

Time to get spin­ning. The high-in­ten­sity ac­tiv­ity burns kilo­joules, builds leg power and helps im­prove car­dio­vas­cu­lar fit­ness. And classes are held in most of the ma­jor com­mer­cial gyms, so you’ll be able to find a class close to your home or work.

2 / Want to save money and get fit­ter too?

Try com­mut­ing to work if you live close enough to the of­fice (and if they have a shower fa­cil­ity). Make sure you travel while it’s light, in­vest in high­vis­i­bil­ity safety gear and a de­cent back­pack to store your work gear and toi­letries.

3 / Sign up for a team MTB race.

Sign up for a team stage race with a good mate, and give your­self a few months to get into de­cent shape. Your team­mate will make sure you don’t skip rides, and the race pro­vides proper mo­ti­va­tion.
