Top tips to motivate your biking this spring

With summer in sight, we caught up with our mountain biking guru Matt Cain, to get his thoughts on the best ways to prepare for the up-coming season of fun on the bikes. Here are his top tips this Spring…

Ease back in…
‘If you have had a quiet off season take it easy as you build back up to the longer rides. An overuse injury at this time of the year can ruin your whole season.’

Keep the knobblies on…
‘It’s probably not time for semi-slick summer tyres just yet. A more aggressive ‘all-conditions’ tyre will be more fun in the mixture of wet and dry conditions and any extra weight is good training too!’

Be prepared…
‘Spring brings changeable conditions, so plan for a bit of everything and always keep a light waterproof and some warm gloves in the bottom of your rucksack.’

In search of trails this Spring?
For those seeking sun, it’s time to head to Sardinia where we have two rip-roaringly fun trips that promise to raise a grin, both our Coast to Coast and Costa Verde holidays feature a variety of trails to test those tyres. Or, if you fancy a cheeky weekend away closer to home, we recommend a trip to the Lake District to take on Classic Coniston.
