ISOLATION BIKING: Turn your coffee break into a workout

We’re all missing the feeling of being out on the trails and the reality is, if you don’t live close to one, you need to stay home. 

We’ve shown you some skills you can practice in your neighbourhood or on your way down to the shops as well as a guide to changing cleats. 

Today we’re focusing on something a little more fitness-based to ensure you are staying in shape. 

Magazine regular Sarah Hunter has provided a short demonstration on how to practice some pre-ride mobility exercises in the time it takes you to make your morning coffee. 

 

Sarah has written an extensive guide to the differences between men’s and women’s training in the May/June/July issue of Mountain Biking Australia. 

We value your continued support and Sarah’s regular fitness and nutrition articles are just a small slice of what you can expect from MBA mag.

Mobile phone, credit card, ID, cash and cycling … it’s always a juggle isn’t it. Ask 10 ten riders and you’ll probably get 10 different opinions on how best to carry those ‘don’t leave home’ essentials when out on the bike.

During the previous nationwide lockdown the sport of cycling enjoyed boom times with local bike shops reporting some of their busiest periods ever. Bike shops will remain open and again are expected to be extremely busy.
