It’s official, summer is over. Kids are back in school, the mornings are darker and the smell of pumpkin spice is starting to permeate the air. For many cyclists, Fall is the signal to hang up their bike till next season. While you may not spend as much time in the saddle during the winter offseason, it does not mean your cycling progress has to come to a complete halt. With a little planning, here are some ideas on how to make the most of your “Off Season” to help you prepare and get stronger for next season.
Don’t let the winter season freeze your progress. Use this time as an opportunity to refine your body, shore up your weaknesses and start next riding season on a strong note.
