Bike fit essentials

The two most important aspects of bike fit are seat height and reach. When you're shopping for a bike and sit on it for the first time, these are the two indicators that the size is correct. The seat should be high enough that you have a very slight bend in your knee when your foot is at the very bottom of the pedal stroke. This gives you the most power with the least chance of injury. To learn how to get your reach right every time, turn to page 66 in The Big Book of Cycling for Beginners — it will save your hands and back!

Do you have to wear a jersey? Technically, no...Do you have to wear a jersey? Technically, no...

Technically, no, but you might like it once you try it. You'll want one with at least the number of back pockets found on page 83 of The Big Book of Cycling for Beginners. Most riders carry all sorts of things in their pockets, including food, water, on-the-road repair items, sunscreen, and more. The clever on-your-back placement not only keeps your stuff where you can easily reach it while you're riding without it falling out, but also keeps it tucked out of the way of the wind.
