From sportives and charity bike rides, to triathlons and mountain bike races, big cycling events are the real highlights of the sport. As well as the social aspect, cycling events and races push your limits, and the feeling of achievement you get with a good finish time is second to none.
It's so easy to forget the small things when you're gearing up for your next big sportive event. It can really put a dampener on your day, so here are our top 10 essential things you need to remember before your next sportive.
Take a couple of minutes to run through this list, so you're not stuck 100 miles from home with no accommodation, lost, hungry or cold.
Your new bike is wonderful as it is, but over time parts will wear out and your skills will improve, meaning that replacement parts or upgrades are sometimes needed. You may just want to get the most out of your ride and gain a performance advantage, so we have put together a guide on some of the best ways to upgrade your bike.
These include the simple things, like grips and saddle for ideal comfort, tyres for speed and control, wheels that allow easier rolling and a lighter weight, and pedals, because your feet deserve kindness too.
