Top 3 Ways to Save the Planet with Bicycles

Did you noticed that anyone has the possibility, at any level to do something extraordinary for the planet? 

As a musician, you can donate part of the money from concerts for preserving wild places. 
As a child you can volunteer for planting trees or cleaning the natural areas, as movie star you can be the voice through which some of the most important natural causes get to the public and so on.

We, as cyclists, can do much more than we think only by biking.

A new book, How Cycling Can Save The World, argues that from improving public health to mitigating climate change, replacing cars with bikes could have an exceptionally large impact on the health of the planet.
The most comprehensive study on the benefits of cycling, Walker says, tracked 30,000 Danes over the course of 15 years; the researchers found that just biking to work decreased risk of mortality within that time frame by approximately 40%. From eradicating health concerns linked to inactivity, to mitigating climate change, to boosting local economies and building community, biking, Walker says, is an integral part of the solution.

With the U.S. spewing 6 billion tons of carbon dioxide into the air last year – one-quarter of the world total – if we only cut it to half, could you imagine how magnificent improvement?

However, bicycles are a major and practical form of transportation for hundreds of millions, and it could be for billions.

One-third of U.S. carbon dioxide emissions are from motorized transport, yet half of all car trips are just 5 km or less.

Such a distance takes only 15 minutes on a bike. Of course, cycling may not be the best option for every trip or by everyone. But if we improve the availability of bicycles and the facilities to support safe cycling, then they could offer a zero-carbon alternative to the car. It would also save us from billions of tons of CO2 emissions in the coming decades.  
 
1. Reduce carbon emissions.  
If you choose to ride your bike to work just one day a week, you can reduce your contribution to CO2 global warming by 20% annually.

2. Less roadways, more forests.
To have a reasonable traffic, once the car number grows higher and higher, we need more roadways and space for everybody.


Can you imagine that even if you choose once in a while the bike instead of the car, the existing roads will be enough?

While you may not be ready to trade in your car, every day you stay off the roadway reduces the need for your space. If others also choose to bicycle some days, cumulatively there is less need for our ever expanding highway system. That means more trees, more open space, and less resources needed to build the roads.   
3. Improve air quality 
The Environmental Protection Agency, a great source for green facts, reports that transportation accounts for 33% of CO2 emissions in America, with more than half of that coming from cars. Billions of tons of poisonous gases are released into the air causing the air to be extremely polluted. Bicycling is a zero emissions way to get from place to place, as a cyclist, you will definitely appreciate clean air.
4. Decrease the production of new cars
You know motor vehicles use energy to propel themselves, but it also takes energy to manufacture vehicles and transport them from the factory to the consumer. Depending on how you calculate it, between 70 and 100 bicycles can be built with the resources required to build one car.
 
5. Reduce landfill waste.
 If you bicycle more, you will create less wear and tear on your car, which means you can keep it on the road (or in your garage when you’re biking) longer and reduce your contribution to the landfill. One of the encouraging green facts is that 75% of the parts of a car are recyclable, but Argonne National Labs estimates there are still at least 3 million tons of non-recyclable shredder residue head to landfills each year.
 

What to wear during summer hot rides?

 Any cyclist would say that summer is the best time to take a ride, but we have to be prepared to ride comfy even when our body deals with high temperatures.

Get ready, because we have some tips to get you cooler rides for the whole summer.

 

1. Cooling vests

The lightweight cooling vest is an integral piece of cooling clothing for elite sporting bodies, industry workers, athletes, doctors all around the world.

During warm-ups or between races, the vest lowers skin temperature, delays the onset of dehydration, and reduces the heart's workload, all factors that increase performance. 

 

2.Not all the jerseys are the same

 

A key characteristic of summer cycling jerseys is the ability to wick away sweat from the body. This will help to keep us feeling cool and comfortable as the mercury rises. Lightweight mesh panels can be great for this, although be aware that the sun’s rays can penetrate the holes so you may need some sunscreen under your jersey in such instances.

Choose an aero jersey that fits closely and provides plenty of breathability, along with an elasticated hem to prevent fabric shift.

The right jersey are very light, and thanks to a stretch fabric, the fit is tailored without feeling restrictive. A full-length zipper, perforated holes under the arms and a mesh panel underneath the rear pockets add to the jersey’s superior breathability, which is one of the best we’ve tried in hot and humid weather.

 

 

3. Bibs make the difference

Cycling shorts are probably the most important part of your summer cycling clothing. A comfortable pair will help prevent saddle sores and leave you able to ride longer and faster even when your legs don’t want to.

While the most important part of any pair of shorts is the pad, which must be good enough to cope with the demands of longer rides, the main thing that will be different about summer-specific cycling shorts will be the bibs. Essentially these should be made of as little material as possible, with a loose mesh construction and a low front to prevent overheating. However it’s important that they still provide enough support to keep the shorts securely in place.

Choose the ones that mix cut with thin, the proper shorts are designed in a way that air intake is optimized with a ventilation cut.

 

 

4. Airy Shoes

 

The shoes we ride in are highly personal (with choices of flat or clip-less, and a thousand-and-one variants to each).

Some are definitely intended for wintry use though, so be sure to check for decent ventilation and low bulk when purchasing to avoid cooking your feet!

 

5. Summer glasses for cycling

 

Not only your skin, but your eyes are particularly sensitive to sunlight.

Bright summer sun can lead to headaches and strain on your eyes. That’s why it’s rare to see a pro at the Tour de France who’s not wearing a pair of sunglasses to protect their eyes.

Always look for good quality sunglasses which block out 100% of the sun’s harmful rays.

The darker tint of a pair of sunglasses will help limit the amount of light entering the eye and help to protect you while riding.

Lens options can include clear for use at night, yellow to boost contrast on overcast days and photochromic, which will adapt to changing conditions.

Interchangeable lenses are available in any range price, while higher-end models come with top-quality lenses from optics experts such as Zeiss. For faster rides, choose wraparound frames if you want the best peripheral vision.

 

 6. Hydration mix

 

Other than sun exposure, your number 1 concern when riding in the summer is staying hydrated. While the Hyper Hydration mix isn’t for your everyday rides, it is something you should consider for those really hot days when you’re sweating more than you can replace with fluids. The high-sodium content helps retain the water you consume, but this mix should only be used on long or intense rides in the most extreme conditions.

Learn to ride your bike to work without sweating

 

Forget about the busy traffic and ride on to work every day!

 

We can also mix the business with pleasure, losing at least one pound/ week. So far, everything looks great. Except the sweaty appearance which we are not at all delighted to display once we arrive.

Don’t worry, we have some tricks for you to keep your fresh allure even after a long ride. 

 

1. Wear a well-ventilated helmet

Ventilation plays a big role when avoiding sweating. So you need to wear a well-ventilated helmet. Most cheap helmets aren’t safe and well-ventilated so you need to spend more. But don’t worry, it’s a good investment.

 

2. Ride relaxed

Save the racing speed for the ride home and bike at a moderate pace during your morning commute. Though part of the reason to bike to work is to increase your activity level, riding at a moderate pace rather than a workout pace can help you to stay sweat-free. You’ll still strengthen your muscles, burn calories and enjoy being outdoors but you will arrive at your office properly groomed for a day's work. You can even start the journey a bit earlier to have time and ride relaxed.

 

3. Wear comfy clothes

Dress light if you have to wear your work clothes during your ride to prevent overheating from too many layers. Wear your slacks and shirt, but carry your sweater or jacket in a backpack and put it on when you arrive at work. Although it’s fashionable to ride your bike in your office attire, you can’t do that if you’re avoiding sweat. Just wear something light and comfortable. A comfy white t-shirt is a good option because it keeps your body cool. But if you hate wearing white t-shirt, you can wear workout clothes. They can also keep your body cool and they draw the sweat away from your body. The condition is to not forget change them once you arrived at the office!

 

4. Refreshing point to beat humidity!

Basically, getting "sweaty" is a function of the temperature, humidity, clothing, level of effort, length of exercise, and your personal propensity to sweat. If you're dressed lightly enough, the weather is not too bad (below 75F and maybe 60% humidity), you travel only a short distance (maybe 2 miles max) on relatively level ground, and you maintain a very "casual" pace, then you can hope to arrive without too much visible sweat. For shorter distances you can probably stretch the other parameters a bit.

What we can’t change is humidity. If the relative humidity is 80% it's going to be hard to avoid working up a sweat, regardless of the other factors. Rather than simply hoping that you won't get sweaty we recommend having a way to change your shirt and "freshen up" a bit on arriving at your job. Buy some of those "sport towels" for drying off at work. They're compact and travel well.

 

5. Drink cool water

Drinking cool water can help you avoid sweat. It regulates your body temperature. It also keeps you hydrated. So don’t hesitate to take your water break when you’re riding your bike to work.

 

6. Plot your route

Whenever possible, plan a route along quiet, shaded side streets. Tree-lined minor arterial roads often have better air quality and provide shade. And if you can, opt for bike lanes. Any street that keeps you farther away from hot cars will help you keep cool.

How to chose the perfect cycling app?

The app. subject started a hot debate at Bikeroo!

At first it looked like we were divided in two teams, the pro apps. team and the cons, but soon we realized that we all use specific apps and the debate continued about who’s app is the best. Ok, this happens daily at Bikeroo, we had coffee vs. cappuccino, art films vs. blockbusters and even…about cycling and small feet… This happens usually when you work with friends.

Maybe you are curious about who’s the winner, but this was the term in our agreement, to let you choose the winning app and do not influence the audience by the one who writes the article. Though…if I think twice I can slip few tips more for my favorite. No way! They will read it too!

Because there are so many available, the one you choose depends on what you want to use it for — you may even want to use a few separate apps to accomplish different purposes. To help make the decision process easier, here are the best cycling apps for each type of function.

 

1. Zwift, for ultimate tips for indoor performers!

 

If you prefer the controlled climate and flexible hours of training indoors or simply live in a rainy climate - Zwift is a fantastic way to push hard, maximize your training, and force yourself to go the extra mile. Better yet, it presents everything in a fun way, gamifying training sessions by allowing you to replicate world class, real-life routes and compete against others. Athletes from around the globe can ride with each other in rich, 3D-generated worlds simply by connecting their existing devices (e.g. trainers, power meters, heart rate monitors, etc) wirelessly via the open industry standards ANT+ and Bluetooth Smart. You can decide at the beginning whether you prefer to race against others or compete against yourself. Although the mobile app works as its own game, the full experience is enhanced by connecting to a desktop version and using the mobile app as a remote control.

 

2. Strava, the best metrics tracker ever!

 

We’re starting with the most obvious app, the one that needs no introduction. It’s hard to beat Strava when it comes to tracking fitness data. The long-running app is quick, comprehensive, and extremely accurate. Since it launched in 2009, Strava has gone on to become hugely popular and for many, it's the go-to app for all cycle rides. Compared to many of its competitors — like RunKeeper or Runtastic — it offers a deeper suite of features while also performing them faster. You can use the app to track or calculate your time, distance, average pace, speed, and estimated power output — you’re even able to record your routes live.

‘Segments’ show your times on leaderboards so you can see how you compare to others who have cycled the same road, and the social functionality that allows you to follow the weekly progress of cycling friends, join clubs and take part in challenges that really is the reason for Strava's unrelenting popularity. Best of all, you can share your stats on leaderboards and connect with friends via its deep social offering — something it does better than any other app on the market.

Strava is Swedish for “strive,” which epitomizes their attitude and ambition.

 

3. Endomondo, the perfect personal coach!

 

Endomondo is designed to be your personal trainer and as such features ‘audio encouragement’ to motivate you during exercise, including how you are performing against pre-determined goals. The app can also track around 40 other sports beside running and cycling. Part of its appeal is in its simplicity compared to other similar apps like Strava. It tracks duration, speed, calories and can be used with a heart rate monitor, and will keep a full training log allow you to easily analyze your training. Plus, it even has an amazing feature called “Pep Talks” where you can have a friend send a personalized message while tracking you live, offering fully customized motivation.

 

4. Garmin Connect, remembers everything about you!

 

Most people will probably find that the app’s most useful feature is its calendar. If you own a Garmin Edge cycling computer – a 520 or an 820, for example – the calendar allows you to review rides you’ve done in the past, using the app as a detailed training diary.

If you plan to purchase a fitness tracker to monitor your progress, Garmin is the best option. Its app is much more user-friendly than some of its competitors and you can log everything in a comprehensive daily calendar that breaks down your average speeds, elevations, durations, distances, and other cycling metrics. The app makes it simple to compare your performance with friends - as well as other users - via Garmin Segments and it also crunches detailed charts displaying your data logged over time.

 

 

5. Relive, the best visualizer!

 

Record any ride on Strava or Garmin Connect, Endomondo or Polar and see it played out for you on a 3D map, complete with speed, heart rate and power data if you like and any snaps you took along the way if you uploaded them to Strava.

Relive captures your ride data from Strava, Garmin Connect, Endomondo or Polar and transforms it into a stunning moving map. Any ride of 10 km or more for a duration of 12 hours or less can be uploaded. After your ride has been shared to your logging service, Relive sends you an email with a link to your video.

Once you’ve sweated, grunted, and suffered through a long and tough ride, there’s nothing as rewarding as being able to recap your ride through high-resolution moving images.

No app. feature the visual grace and fluidity of Relive, nor its smooth aesthetic. The videos even look similar to the 3D satellite maps commentators often use during TV coverage of big cycling events. Short of wearing a GoPro, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a better way to capture your cycling memories.

Why choose a Bikeroo saddle?

Dear Biker Lovers,

Last time, we talked about what our clients told us on saddle problems coming from a wrong saddle choice.

How do you know you have the wrong saddle? It’s easy. If you have low back pain, sitting pain, shoulders tension or general discomfort during the ride, the conclusion is that your saddle is not the right one for you. Riding styles, gender and anatomic differences, all have an input in choosing the saddle.

As passionate cyclists, we had ourselves all types of pain you can get from wrong choices. But not anymore. That’s why developed new solutions for old problems.

Many of our new technologies came out from our needs or our clients needs. We innovated new materials, new shapes and different adaptors for customized problem solvers. If you come at Bikeroo with a problem or a request and we don’t have the product you need, we will design it or adapt it for you. That’s why our saddle models were award-winning in terms of comfort.

So, because last time we pointed out 5 different issues in choosing the wrong saddle, we are now revealing 5 good choices from Bikeroo’s innovated saddles.

 

1. We have a bike saddle for every type of riding style

Mountain biking, leisure cycling, professional roadies or stationary cycling, all have a saddle to ride comfortable on from Bikeroo saddles. The extra padded cushion or the dual suspension will help you enjoy your rides for miles and miles, especially if you ride daily or you are a commuter.

If you want to forget the painful rides, all you have to do is invest in a super comfortable bike seat. You will save the money of expensive cycling shorts. The anatomically supportive and comfortable road bike saddles will distribute pressure from your back across the surface of the saddle and will eliminate sit bone pain immediately and for good.

 

2. We have narrow and wide bike saddles

Our Bikeroo cycling seats, especially designed for different anatomies are a game changer.

For women, we have an ergonomic shape best suited for women’s unique anatomy, wider, adapted to the pelvis structure, with extra padded cushion and dual suspension.

Either you choose to use it on your indoor bike, as your road bike seat, as a stylish beach bike seat or as the comfiest women’s mtb saddle, this bicycle saddle will provide you the comfort you need and help you will feel less pressure on your sensitive area. No need for expensive cycling shorts.

For men, our seats are anatomically supportive distributing pressure from your back across the surface of the saddle and eliminating sit bone pain immediately. Riding an uncomfortable stock bicycle seat can give you prostate problems, chronic back pain and even erectile dysfunction. Our Bikeroo cycling seat, especially designed for men, due to its narrow design, ideal soft padding and a deep center cutout, relief pressure points in your sensitive areas and will allow you to pedal longer without experiencing chaffing, soreness and pain.

 

3. Universal adapter for right position

As we discussed earlier, the riding position is a key factor in cycling comfort.

The back should be always during a ride in his right position, because many of the back problems are rooted in the wrong riding posture.

So, we offer an adapter which help you mount the saddle on any bike you would have and keep the saddle in the position you need.

 

4. We use only high quality materials

We carefully considered all customers’ requirements and in order to provide our customer with more satisfying services and quality products, we have contacted our supplier and they have updated their technology and provided us the new look bicycle saddle.

5. We have bike saddles specially created for you

For example, we designed the Bikeroo bike seat shock absorber for seniors to evenly distribute your weight on the seat so you won't feel pain and pressure on your lower back. The padded bike seat is great for prostate and tailbone relief.

 

TOP 5 Mistakes when choosing a bicycle saddle

Did you knew that most of us are not aware that we shouldn’t feel any discomfort during a ride?

Yes, that’s true. We are so used to think is our fault, or we are not doing something right, than we rather give up cycling than consider the external factors, which in a 99% percent represent the real problem.

Because we hear very often the reasons of the discomfort from our clients, we can say that the “pain” comes in a huge percent related to the saddle. We also studied on our clients how come they chosen the wrong saddle.

Here is what we discovered and want to share with you today!

  1. Failing To Consider Your Riding Style

When you are buying your bike saddle you should always make sure to speak to a professional and let them know exactly how you ride and what you use your bike for. Mountain bike saddles make it easier to shift your weight way back, and road saddles are narrower to avoid chafing. If you have a lot of pressure problems and in-ride numbness, you may want to consider a saddle with a cutaway or a depression to take some pressure off. And if you’re planning on going on ultra-long endurance rides, looking for a saddle with a thin layer of gel on the top may make those miles feel less taxing. Before buying a saddle or ask for guidance, think about what problems you’ve had and what kind of riding you’re doing.

 

  1. Not Sizing Properly Choosing a too narrow or to wide bike saddle

First, the saddle should comfortably support your ischial tuberosities (or sit bones). If it doesn’t, your body weight is being supported by the body parts between them – primarily the labia (in women) and internal penis (in men). Painful! 

Sit bone width isn’t tied to pants size, so some companies have developed measurement tools, available in many bike shops now, to measure the distance between the sit bones to find the perfect saddle for you.

One rule is that the saddle’s seating surface should be equal or greater than the centre-to-centre spacing between your sit bones, plus about 1 centimeter on each side.

 

  1. Buying a bike saddle that comes without an universal adapter

A clever adapter allows adjustment forward or back and offer a very good riding position on almost every bike type. Professional roadies obsess over seat height down to the half-millimeter.

The relationship between saddle and seat posts is critical, and it shouldn’t be taken for granted. If your bike does not have and universal adapter, your position will be a discomfort factor, many times overlooked by many of our clients.

 

  1. Choosing a bike saddle with no padding

If you want to forget the painful rides, all you have to do is invest in a super comfortable bike seat. The no padding saddles could look great, but it might make your scream of pain and forget cycling for a long while.

While any cushioned seat will provide comfort for your sit bones, the 2 most common cushioning materials react differently under weight.

Gel cushioning molds to your body and provides the plushest comfort. Most recreational riders prefer this for its superior comfort on casual rides. Its downside is that gel tends to get compacted more quickly than the other option, foam.

Foam cushioning offers a pliable feel that springs back to shape. Road riders favor foam as it provides more support than gel while still delivering comfort. For longer rides, riders over 200 lbs. or riders with well-conditioned sit bones, firmer foam is preferred as it doesn’t compact as quickly as softer foam or gel.

 

  1. Choosing a universal saddle

Men and women, juniors and seniors, all have different needs. Ignoring the specific requires of our body shapes and different ages is usually the base of “something’s wrong” discomfort.   

Besides the obvious differences between men’s and women’s anatomy there are some other not so obvious differences. The one that has the largest impact on bicycle saddle comfort for women is pelvic width. Women naturally have a pelvis that is slightly wider than men to allow for child birth. Because of this extra width, and actual pelvic geometry, a women sitting on a men bicycle seat can place the “sit bones” outside of the area of support. This transfers the support from skeletal (pelvic support) to soft tissue which is very uncomfortable.

As for men they should be careful, the tissue between the sit bones contains many nerves and blood vessels, and over time, sitting on it can reduce blood flow cause numbness and sometimes permanent nerve damage, reducing the duration of erections in men. Oups!

For seniors, the saddle should respect the right position, comfort and riding style, because the back pains are more likely to interfere with cycling and giving up.

 

How To Look Elegant While Riding your Bike

TOP Difference between men and women cycling needs.

Narrower saddles negatively affect saddle pressures in female cyclists.

The studies evaluating the long-term effects of saddle pressure on the integrity of the pudenda nerve, pelvic floor and sexual function are warranted.

Because of the differences in the structural bodies of men and women, bicycle saddles must reflect these differences.

A man’s seat is usually narrow and long, while that of a woman is wide and short.

A woman’s seat is wide to reflect their generally wide hips. Women have their pelvic bones set wider apart than men, hence the wide seats.

A major concern for both men and women is too much pressure that can affect the flow of blood to the genitals.

This means that the design of a seat is important.

You are unique, and also it is your saddle!

Some brands that have carried out research into soft tissue discomfort in women have come to the conclusion it’s your body shape that determines the ideal saddle for you.

Those who have more ‘pronounced’ or less ‘protected’ genitals, they suggest, will need a wider cut-out or relief channel, than those who are more ‘petite’ down there – so do consider your own personal anatomy when saddle shopping.

 

Each rider is completely different and the saddle should be sized to match your position and anatomy.

First set your position then look towards the correct saddle.

Most professional bicycle fitters are trained to determine proper placement and width of saddles.  This is done visually while you are riding your bike on a stationary trainer.

Your position on the bike has a lot to do with your saddle comfort. For example: if you ride a triathlon specific bike and it is set up properly, your pelvis will have a slight forward rotation.

Without the correct bike saddle there will be tremendous pressure on sensitive areas. If you are on a road bike with a fairly upright position you will be supported by the widest part of your sit bones and will need a wider seat. Before you go shopping for a new saddle make sure that your position has been properly set up by a professional bicycle fitter.

There are also unisex seats in the market which can be used by both women and men and it also can fit you perfectly, of course. So as taller women tend to fit on men’s bike seats and shorter men often prefer women’s seats as their posture on the bicycle tends to be similar.

Do you believe that there is no identical body to yours?

The conclusion is that you should not ride in pain ever again!

Secondly, don’t worry if a bike seat does not fit you but it fitted your best friend.

Thirdly, the pain is not your fault, you didn’t do anything wrong, is about our unique anatomy and finding the perfect match.
