You’re motivated, ready to head outside and itching to start pedaling. Whether you’re a seasoned cyclist or new to the game, you can’t wait to put your biking and cycling gear to good use. Check out these five tips to keep your bike, helmets, shoes and more organized and accessible, and you’ll be hitting the pavement in no time.
1. Keep Your Bike Off the Ground
This one’s a no-brainer. On the rare occasion your bike’s not in motion, keep it off the floor with Gladiator Claw™ Advanced Bike Storage or Horizontal Bike Hooks to free up your space while protecting — and showing off — your wheels.
2. Shape Up Your Shoe System
Now that you’ve got your bike off the floor, you need to do something about those shoes. Organize and line them up on a 30″ Shoe Rack, so you can easily slip them on and ride out the door in a flash.
3. Keep a Cool Head
Safety should be top of mind — literally. Helmets might seem cumbersome, but you’ll feel more motivated to wear yours if it’s easy to reach and not tucked away in a dark, forgotten corner. Ditto for protective clothing and padding. Give your protective gear some love, and it’ll treat you right.
4. Stay Hydrated and Energized
Everyone forgets to drink water throughout the day, but if you’re heading out for a ride you can’t afford to leave your water bottle and energy bars at home. GearBoxes are great for holding quick, on-the-go snacks when you’re eager to hit the road.
5. Keep Your Gear Clean
You know you’re riding right when your gear gets muddied up. Make maintenance effortless with easy-to-access wipes, cleaning sprays and paper towels straight from a conveniently placed Clean-Up Caddy.
As your biking habits change, so will your organization needs. Start with a Bike GearTrack® Pack to create your own dynamic wall system that you can adjust, customize and build up to help you organize and protect your cycling gear, so it’s always ready to go. With the help of GearTrack® Channels, hooks and more, you can also keep your tire pump, trainer, extra wheel sets and backpacks close at hand.
