You know what they say... a couple that plays together, stays together! Our team at Pedal Chic loves when cycling couples come in the shop looking for new bike accessories and apparel and share their latest biking adventures with us! Or better yet, when they come in and rent a bike for their partner so that they can introduce them to the wonderful world of biking! Check out some tips and reasons for getting the most out of your ride with your partner!
What's the key to any relationship? COMMUNICATION!
Talk to your partner about the types of trails you like to ride. If they are new to the sport then they might not feel super comfortable on the road. Check out your area for paved trails where you can ride next to one another and keep the conversation going.
Whether you are both just getting back into shape or at the top of your game, show your partner some competitive spirit and make your rides a little more interesting! See who can bike a faster clip, or loser buys the Gatorade!
Yes, patience is a virtue!
Partners are not always going to be at the same level of fitness and biking. Make sure to show your partner support and encouragement. If you are the veteran biker then offer helpful tips on form or changing gears. Try not to get frustrated if your partner is slower or can't get up the hills quite yet. If you make it fun, then they will want to keeping riding!
