Ride Preparation

For enjoyment and safety, it’s important to ensure that you adequately prepare for the People’s Ride.

In the lead up to the 2017 edition, we will lend a helping hand by releasing tips to have you perfectly primed for January.

In the meantime, get started with these general tips:

  • If you are jumping on your bike for the first time or after an extended break, visit your general practitioner for a health check.
  • Make sure you drink and eat enough during your training rides.
  • Always eat something before a ride in the mornings, even if it is just banana or a muesli bar.
  • On longer rides of more than 60 minutes eat something small every hour (for example an energy bar or banana).
  • Hydration is very important. Drink 300-500 ml of water before you train and try to drink 500-750 ml every hour on the bike. After your training ride, drink another 300-500ml to rehydrate.
  • And always ride safe, have fun and keep smiling!
