A BEGINNER'S GUIDE

A BEGINNER’S GUIDE TO CYCLE COMMUTING – CHOOSING THE RIGHT BIKE, SIZING AND ADJUSTMENT

You want to start cycling? You want to find the ride bike for your commuting? You are confused with all the varieties of bikes that you can get? Read this post here, it will help you to choose the best road bike for beginners. There are some questions that you can ask to find the right bike for your needs.

How far is your everyday ride?How far is your everyday ride?

If your everyday ride is something under 3 miles, any bike will work just fine. If your route is hilly, you might just need to invest in a cheap roadster or shopper for such short distance. The short distance makes it easy to choose a saddle as you will not ride long enough to feel the discomfort in any saddle. Reliability is not a big issue either as in the worst case scenario; you might just have to walk for a mile or two.

If your route is up to 6 miles or half an hour ride, you should start to look at something comfortable, like a comfortable and fit saddle. The bike you choose should be built focusing on comfort and reliability and allowing you to travel in an upright position.

If your ride is further than 9 miles, apart from comfort and reliability, you should pay attention to its efficiency.

How many gears that you need?

The numbers of gears available in bikes now really vary, from 1,2,3 to even 30 gears. If your route is just dead flat, you might need a single speed bicycle. If your route is something like a touring bike on a mountain pass, you probably need all the gears that you can get. The common pick is between 5 and 9 for a moderate hill pass.

Which wheel size?wheel size

There are two common wheel sizes in the market, 26” and 28”. 26” is more popular and available in bigger range of sizes and 28” is often available for skinny sizes. You can choose between fat and skinny size as fat ones are more comfortable and skinny ones are faster.

How much you want to pay for your bicycle?

It is really your choice when it comes to how much you want to spend on your bike. Some just go for years with a super cheap bike from supermarket or catalogue. On the other hand, some are bike snobs and will not go on anything but the most expensive bike in store. Most people will choose something in between. However, it is hard decide how much you should spend as a new cyclist.

Something to keep in mind that you should not expect a cheap bike to be comfortable or reliable and you should not expect your expensive bike is still at the railing when you come back. A commuting bike, in the end, is a tool, you do not need a too light and expensive one, but you need to pay enough for it to proper handle its everyday job in different weather conditions. We recommend you to go with one less than £200, or if you want something that can last for a decade or more, you might want to pay a price up to £600.

 

Saddle height

How we often adjust the saddle height? You sit on the saddle, place one foot on the pedal and heighten it until your leg is straight. When cycling, you always have the ball of your foot over the middle of the pedals; therefore, your leg will not fully straighten out. However, this way of adjusting your saddle height normally set the saddle too high for beginners. For beginners, the height of the saddle should be something in between high enough for efficiently pedaling and low enough to feel safe.

After a few weeks in to cycling, you might have more confidence to rise your saddle a few centimeter higher. Keep the adjustment as you feel comfortable. Adjusting saddle height is a personal thing and it is all up to your need. It is recommended that you should not force your body to fit the bike but always adjust a bike to fit your body.

Hanoi’s ‘Old Quarter.’

The north is a good place to start your journey. It rains quite a lot, about eight months a year, and it is cooler than in the south. The old Hanoi is one of the liveliest capitals in the world. The Central point is the Hoan Kiem Lake, where morning (very) early residents doing their morning exercises. Its north lies the charming ‘Old Quarter’. Here slalom every day thousands of scooters and cyclists through narrow streets full of merchandise on display. Every street has its hand (craft): tailors, shoemakers, grocers, and goldsmiths. A fun place of the old district, the cozy junction with big hoi-bars. Here drinking locals, expats and tourists along a freshly tapped Vietnamese beer (at € 0.15 per glass!).

Halong Bay and Sapa

From the central mountain town of Sapa, you can make beautiful walks along traditional Hmong villages. Let your first spreading quite a bit Sapa; in the nearby villages, there is too much geared towards tourism.

Hoi An

For each route (north to south or vice versa) halfway between the time to relax in Hoi An. The excellent restaurants, atmospheric streets and riverside location (near the beach) make this an addictive town. Have yourself a suit fitting at one of the dirt-cheap tailors and rent a bicycle to explore the area.

Dalat

The colonial Dalat, located in a green environment.

In the central highlands, thick 300 kilometers from Ho Chi Minh City and a considerable detour off the major north-south route, is Dalat. This cool storage place was a favorite retreat in the French colonial period. For twenty years it is the base of the so-called ‘Easy Riders’. These Vietnamese motorcyclists offer the adventurous traveler to explore the possibility, the back of the engine, the rugged interior of Vietnam. From Dalat, you can be in a three- or four-day tour ‘crossing’ to Hoi An or Nha Thrang (or vice versa).

The tour will leave you along mountainous areas, minority villages, elephants, waterfalls, lakes, coffee plantations and cotton spinning mills. You have to sacrifice a little luxury, but it is an experience for life.

Ho Chi Minh City and Mekong Delta

A busy intersection in front of the Ben Thanh market in Ho Chi Minh City. The old Saigon is teeming with mopeds and food stalls with a typical Asian city. Try once a Vietnamese massage or learn more about the Vietnam War. If you dare, you crawl through the narrow Cu Chi tunnels near the city. Little traveled the southern part of the Mekong Delta.
