5 New Year’s Resolutions for Cyclists

What do you want to achieve this year? Do you have any goals or ambitions in mind? If you’re looking for some inspiration to kick-start the year right, here are 5 New Year’s resolutions for cyclists!

1. 12 goals in 12 months

This is a great resolution if you’re looking to get fit and challenge yourself. Set yourself a goal (big or small) each month. It could be 12 small goals, or nine small and three bigger goals. If you are looking to improve performance or take part in specific events, but tend to lose motivation or interest, then this is the perfect resolution for you.

2. Commute to work

If you’re not already commuting to work, you should. It’s a great way to stay in shape and once you get into the habit, you’ll feel healthier and more energised – ready for your working day. And to help keep you motivated you can try and get other colleagues from work to cycle to work, too.

3. Set a realistic yearly mileage goal

It’s important to set attainable goals, so figure out how many miles you are capable of riding each week and see what your yearly goal should be. You can use apps like Strava to set personal goals and this’ll help you keep on target to reach your mileage each week.

4. Take part in an event

Signing up for a race or an event is an excellent New Year’s resolution. It’ll give you motivation, something to train for and a date to complete it by. To make it more fun, try and get some friends or training partners involved too!

5. Volunteer, or donate, at a cycling charity

You can find a number of charities through Cycling UK. You can choose from, and donate to, a range of successful community engagement programmes that give people the opportunity to cycle on a regular basis. Whether it’s donating old bicycles, fixing bikes, or leading social rides, you can help others whilst also doing something you love.
