shooting for metro la’s new bike campaign with the track bike
jennaleem1 asked: I really wanna buy a good bike and start cycling. Any tips for beginners?
I would say purchase your bike at a bike shop and never at target or walmart. Be willing to spend a little on your bike. See it as an investment. The heavier your bike, the harder it’s going to be to ride it. It’ll probably make you hate cycling. I know that’s how I started and ever little bump in the road was a struggle.
Maybe also find quiet roads near your area, that you can train on. Start small. I know 3-5 miles was a lot for me in the beginning. Join the app “Strava” if you can and track your progress. Try and increase your distance, once you feel comfortable riding your set miles.
And lastly, please buy a helmet. Too many people are getting killed nowadays. I know they aren’t cute but it’s just not worth getting seriously hurt.
