What to think about before a long bike race?

What to think about before a long bike race?

"My advice before cycling Vätternrundan is to set a reasonable goal. If it is the first time, "getting around" is a great goal. If you want to do it again later, the goal can be to be better than the first time. The feeling when I came to the finish line after my first Vätternrundan was priceless and I felt that I could do absolutely anything! I signed up and joined Team Rynkeby Sthlm and cycled to Paris the following year."

Manners and etiquette on a bike

Manners and etiquette on a bike

In cycling, there are cycling rules how to be in traffic for safety, but there are also several unwritten rules that for many are carved in stone such as not having fluttering clothes, too short socks, unshaven legs or perhaps the worst marks from the oil on the chain on the leg. We asked Helen about these rules and hope you dare to do your thing no matter what others think!
