For some, it may seem like a vacation, but for others, training camps are very serious. For competitive cyclists, or even for those who want to start the season strong, training camps aren’t a game.
Many of us continue indoor cycling during the long winter months. Some people spin in their living room, while others train in their garage. Some people even cycle in their unheated backyard shack.
My passion for TT only developed recently even though I have been doing triathlon for several years. The first thing you realize from riding a TT bike is the speed you can reach for the same effort compared to a road bike.
Gravel bikes and Cyclocross bikes are quite hard to distinguish: Both bikes share key design elements, including dropped handlebars, wheel diameter, and knobby tires. Although both Gravel and Cyclocross bikes can be used in similar riding conditions, they are optimized for their specific purpose.
Many people find it hard to differentiate triathlon and time trial bikes as they look similar when put side by side. Both these bikes share a lot of traits and have a similar design, including aero bars and a slender frame for aerodynamic efficiency.
Buying a bike might seem like a simple task, but there are plenty of things to consider to zero-in on the perfect bike for you. Different bikes are designed for different purposes and the price should not be the only deciding factor.
