Cycling Advice by Bicycle Guider

The Cycling Advice section is your guide to becoming a better cyclist. We aim to cover each and every important topic first and then move to the less pressing ones in the future. So far, we’ve covered all of the basic skills that you need to have to become a better cyclist.

The thing that motivated me to start this thread in the first place are numerous questions I get from readers every day asking for cycling tips.

Even if you’re familiar with cycling, you still need to be up to date with the latest info to make the best choices on the road.

How to Learn Cycling for Beginners?

How to learn cyclingWhen becoming a cyclist, everyone starts as a pure beginner. Luckily, it does not take a long time to become more experienced and master new skills.

To be able to do this, proper resources and cycling tips for beginners are necessary, which I strive to provide through these pages.

The approach to cycling for beginners is different than for experts. Complex issues and theories need to be simplified and made more digestible, which is what these articles are all about. You should be able to understand all of the tips and tricks and pieces of advice even if the only thing you know about bicycles is that they have two wheels. 🙂

Some common questions I get from my readers include, “How to learn cycling for beginners?”, “Where do I start?”, “Which skills are necessary for me to know when I hit the road?”, etc.

I’ll always keep these questions in the back of my mind when deciding which topic to cover next in this Cycling Advice section. That way, you’ll get the most relevant and the most useful cycling tips for beginners each and every time.

    How wide of road tire will a Valkarie Airborne titanium frame accomadate?

    • Jeff Balton says:

      Hi John, not sure about that one. The standard model comes with 23mm tires as far as I know. It could certainly accommodate one or two sizes wider tires, but it’s best to contact the manufacturer.
