Last week I subscribed to the mail list of biketours.com and today I saw a email in my inbox from biketours says about the quiz which defines your travel style. I don’t know whether you saw this before or not. I didn’t. I made the quiz and the result was that I’m the explorer.
Challenge: Day #04
Yesterday I couldn’t make the goal for some reason, so I cycled about 10 miles today for compensating yesterdays lost. It was more difficult cause it took much time and much distance apparently. But it was not boring so that I discovered new streets I didn’t see before. I moved away much more to make it more colorful. It was tiring but I’m getting used to it and it becomes easier day by day.
I’m learning day by day how to ride for a challenge and what should I do next time. When I was cycling since I’ve started my 5 miles a day challenge, I wasn’t listening music, I was just focusing to ride on. I don’t know why, I think I believed that if I focus to cycle I can success it better, but of course it’s a bullshit. Yes I have a goal but I have to enjoy it also.
Today I made the distance more than the other days and before I went outside with my bicycle I got my earphones for listening music. Thanks to music it was not boring to get about 10 miles. So, I decided to make a song list for cycling. I’m not going to cycle without music from now on.
Challenge: Day #03
Today I made above 5 miles and one of my friend joined me. It was fun because when you’re riding alone it may be boring particularly if you don’t change the route frequently. We occasionally had a talk while cycling and fisnihed the goal together. It was nice.
Recently I’m trying to regulate my cycling routine. Accordingly, I’ve started a challenge by myself. I thought that if I can add some other daily routine alongside cycling, it would be an extra motivation to me. So, I’m also doing sit-up, push-up, walking and running. While I’m doing my daily routines I’m following my development via a couple of apps.
There is a kind of person in the life who lives regularly, you know that person, erhh, I’m not him/her! I need a dose of motivation to move, actually If I had, I can lose my motivation easily. Therefore, I decided to use mobile apps because they push me to do these excercises. I like it so that it’s fun and following the changes lifts you up.
Challenge: Day #02
Today, the weather was a tiny bit windy but it still became hard to pedal. I should make an extra effort in such weather. Even so, I could reached the 5 miles goal.
I’ve cycled 5,73 miles that’s very enough for me at the beginning of this challenge.
I wanna write here some notable ews about the world of cycling as far as possible. under the category of notable news. I’m not a professional about it but I thought it would be nice to write here when I’m learning and developing myself.
So, the first news is about a bicycle which is just 11 pounds (5 kg). Yes you didn’t hear wrong! It’s just 11 pounds it’s made from carbon fibre with 95% ratio. That’s why it is such light. Beside the simplicity (in appearence) there are some significant specifications like shock absorption which pushes your ride comfort to the top of maximization.
Challenge: Day #01
This is the first day of my “5 miles a day challenge”. I’ve cycled above 5 miles, so I accomplished the goal for today but there are many days ahead.
As the first day, it was a little bit exhausting cause the weather was a little bit warm. I didn’t choose any special route, just cycled around my house. I’m gonna try to discover new places also to make the activity more fun.
I’m mostly riding on my bike for commuting, but I’ve decided to make this activity much more fun.
Even though bicycle commuting is very enjoyable it becomes a routine day by day. Because when you’re riding your bike while on the road to your work for instance, you can also compete with traffic if you live in a crowded city. So, after a couple of weeks you lose your pleasure of biking. I mean your awareness about biking becomes less in time. I want to be aware of biking when I’m riding on it. I like it.

[su_highlight background=”#fff099″]The crankset (in the US) or chainset (in the UK), is the component of a bicycle drivetrain that converts the reciprocating motion of the rider’s legs into rotational motion used to drive the chain or belt, which in turn drives the rear wheel.[/su_highlight][su_custom_gallery source=”media: 167,168,169,170,173″ link=”lightbox”]
