6 Reasons Why Shorter Bike Rides Are Better | GCN Show Ep. 387

Published on June 9th 2020


Seeing pro cyclists knocking out 400km training rides can be pretty disheartening to the every day bike rider. How can you ever become a good cyclist if you don't have the time to go for 10 hour long rides every weekend? Well, we think short rides are better than long, all day slogs. You can ride harder, dodge the worst weather, and fit them in around your over life commitments. Dan and Si discuss all this and more on this weeks GCN Show.
