We are one week into 2023, have you changed anything yet?
Whether you believe in New Year’s Resolutions or not, if it is a way to ride your bike more than we think it’s worth a go! Here are some of our top ideas to have a better year on your bike in 2023.
- Book a cycling trip to look forward too
Research shows that the enjoyment of a holiday starts as soon as you book. So get those good vibes going right away! Whether it’s in Spring, Summer, Autumn or even next Winter, get a cycling trip in the calendar as early as possible and have something to look forward to.
Plus, having something to look forward to will motivate you with the other New year resolutions, like getting fitter and eating healthier.
- Spend more time with friends
Bike rides are a perfect way to see your friends and also meet new friends. Do more social cafe rides in 2023. Join a local club or sign up to a local event, you won’t regret it!
At our cycling hubs in Girona and Málaga we organize regular events that you can get involved with on your cycling break.
- Get your partner riding more
One way to ride more may be to persuade your partner to ride more so you can enjoy outings together. Find out what the barriers to that are and break them down. If it´s road safety try off road, if it’s the cold weather try better clothing. Ride at their pace if you can and focus on enjoyment rather than crunching numbers. We think you’ll enjoy the result!
- Get a structured training plan or cycling coach
Any type of cyclist with any objective can benefit from a cycling plan and cycling coach. It´s a extra motivation to ride when perhaps you would skip it and it will for sure have you fitter and smashing those climbs when the warmer months come.
- Treat yourself to a new bike in the January sale to motivate you to get out
There are some great sales at the moment as bike shops clear 2022 stock. It’s the perfect time to grab a bargain with your Christmas money and perhaps try a new discipline (MTB, gravel or road cycling). It will help to get you out on the bike more.
We hope these top tips have been useful for deciding which New Year’s Resolutions you would like to try to cycle more in 2023.
