Five bicycle tips for a better ride


1. Find a scenic cycling route
Groups like the Adventure Cycling Association (ACA) have currently mapped more than 40,000 miles of bike routes around the US. While they continue to work to develop more bike routesacross the US, you can request a catalogue of bike maps to get you started.
You can help the ACA, and other groups like the National Center for Safe Routes to Schooldevelop a safe bicycling route in your area.

Or, in the case of professional cyclists Danny MacAskill, you can make your own route (do not try this at home!).

1.寻找一条风景好的骑行线路

最近,冒险自行车协会这类组织对全美适合骑行的4万多英里路线做出了标注。在他们继续开发更多骑行路线的同时,你只要申请一份骑行地图,就可以上路了。
你可以在你的地方帮助冒险自行车协会或者国家通学中心等其他组织开发安全的骑行线路

或者,像专业自行车手丹尼 麦卡斯基尔那样制定自己的骑行线路。(请勿在家轻易尝试)


2. Bike maintenance
The League of American Bicyclists suggests performing an "ABC Quick Check" on your bike before you ride. The acronym ABC Quick Check reminds riders to check for air in the tires, brakes that work, cranks and chains in place, quick release systems that release properly, and to check the overall bike before riding.
Bicycling magazine offers a three-point tutorial on bike maintenance, giving how-to tips for cleaning out a bike chain, adjusting brakes, and smoothing out the shifting on a bike.
When it comes to on-the-go maintenance and repairs, it is always helpful to bring the following with you on a ride: a spare tire tube, a flat-tire patch kit, tire lever, and a multi-tool with assorted screwdrivers.
2.自行车的保养

在你出门之前,美国自行车联盟推荐用“ABC快速检查”给你的爱车做个体检。所谓的“ABC快速检查”就是检查胎压,刹车是否工作正常及曲柄和链条位置,测试快拆系统是否运行正常,这样就可以给自行车做了全面的体检。骑自行车杂志提供了三点辅导意见教你怎么保养自行车。这三点分别是如何清洗自行车链条,如何调整刹车,还有怎样使自行车的变速器更顺畅。

在你骑行的过程中,下面这些随身的用具能够让你随时保养及修理自行车:一个备用内胎,一套可以补气的装备,轮胎杠杆,还有带有各种类型螺丝起子的工具。


3. Stay safe
Bike safety includes a few key components: a good helmet, reflective gear and bike reflectors to make you visible, and knowing how to ride on trails and on the road with others.
The League of American Cyclists offers a good description of the right gear to stay safe and comfortable when you ride, as well as riding tips on its smart cycling tips page.
When it comes to kids and bike safety, Safe Kids Worldwide offers a video tutorial on finding the right bike helmet fit for a child.
3.保证安全

安全的骑自行车有以下几个重要因素:好的头盔,反光马甲,自行车上的反光条,这些都可以让你在骑行的过程中变得醒目。还有需要知道怎么按车道骑自行车

美国自行车联盟教你怎么选择合适的装备以保证你的安全和舒适度。还有更多的骑行意见可以在聪明骑自行车的网页上阅读。

为了保证孩子在骑行中的安全,全球儿童安全网络上可以找到如何帮助儿童选用头盔的指导视频。


4. The best wheels for you
If you are new to cycling, or haven't updated your bike since you took off the training wheels, here are a few suggestions for finding a good bike near you.
When buying a bike, either new or used, be sure to have someone fit you to the bike. Pay special attention to frame size, seat design, and the angle of the handlebars and seat when shopping for a bike. Always ask for a test ride to make sure the bike fits both you and your riding style. Consumer Reports offers a bike buying guide with tips for shoppers.
If you aren't interested in owning a bike, check to see if there is a bike-sharing program near you that allows you to pick up a bike at a designated location and ride it for as long as you need it, for a fee. Boston, San Francisco, New York, Washington, and Boulder, Colorado, are among the US cities that offer bike- sharing programs. Bike sharing can be a good option for visiting a city as well, with many bike-sharing programs offering single-ride or day rates for visitors.
Still need some inspiration? People for Bikes, a cyclist-rights organization in the US, has a series of YouTube videos dedicated to professional cyclists talking about their first bikes.
4.选择最适合你的座驾
如果你是个新手,或者还在使用训练用车轮的话,这里给你一些意见,让你可以从周围选择一辆好的自行车。
买自行车的时候,不管是全新的还是二手的,一定要选择一辆适合自己的。在买的过程中要特别关注车架尺寸,车座设计,手把的角度还有车座。一定要试骑,这样才能保证这辆车是适合你的,并且与你的骑行习惯相匹配。消费者报告在购买自行车指南中为买家们提供了一些意见。
如果你对于拥有一辆自行车并不是太感兴趣,那么你可以看看附近有没有自行车共享项目,这样,只需要花少许的钱就可以在制定地方取车并且骑到你的目的地。波士顿,圣弗朗西斯,纽约,华盛顿,博得,科罗拉多这些城市都有自行车共享项目。在参观一座城市的时候,租一辆自行车也不失为一个好的选择,在自行车共享项目中,你有多种选择,可以选择只用一次或者按天计算。

还需要一些其他的灵感么?“为自行车而活”是美国的一个保护骑自行车人权益的组织,他们也请来一些专业自行车手在YOUTUBE上讨论他们的第一辆自行车。


5. Make a plan
Cutting down on car time and getting more exercise are two great benefits of including more cycling in your daily routine. To keep riding, make a plan to get out and ride each week. Can you run errands nearby on your bike? What about commuting to work and school? Can you plan a ride with family or friends on the weekend? Getting used to riding and making a plan to ride more can help keep you out on the roads and trails.
May is National Bike Month, and many cities plan events to help get people on bikes. Check out an event near you, or get in touch with a local bike organization to become part of your cycling community.
5.制定计划
在日常生活中,选择骑行可以帮你减少开车的时间并且锻炼身体。你可以制定每周骑行出游计划,这样就可以让你一直骑自行车了。在附近办事的时候你可以骑自行车去吧?那么骑自行车上班或者上学如何?周末的时候计划和家人朋友一起骑行出游?习惯骑自行车并且制定骑行计划可以让你远离汽车和火车。
五月是全国骑自行车月。很多城市为了让人们更多的骑自行车举办多项活动。你可以看看附近有没有什么骑自行车的活动,或者和本地的自行车组织联系也成为自行车社区的一份子吧。
