After months spent training indoors, it’s finally time to take things outside and get back to outdoor workouts. This transition can be pretty exciting and fun, as long as you don’t ruin it by making these common mistakes.

Rushing Things

Committing to outdoor workouts can be tricky since you’ll have to deal with some issues you wouldn’t face at the gym. That’s why you should take things slow before easing into your new routine.

No Variety

There’s no need to push yourself to work outdoors when you don’t feel like it. Try to find the perfect balance between indoor and outdoor workouts, especially if you like them in equal measure.

Safety Protocols

Staying safe during your outdoor workouts should be one of your top priorities. Reflective clothes are highly recommended, and you should always remember to wear safety gear during your cycling adventures.

Weather Issues

Never head outside before checking the weather forecast. The weather may be nice now, but there’s still a chance that rain or wind could ruin your outdoor workout.
