As the cycling team continues to grow, the technical level of riders is also constantly being pulled apart. How to better and quickly integrate into the cycling team has become a problem that plagues novices.
There are many people who like cycling, and they all come from different fields and have received different levels of education. Everyone has completely different personalities and habits.
Although most riders are very friendly, you still need to pay attention to the following points when getting along：
1.don’t ask others to borrow a car
This is a big taboo among cyclists. Everyone’s car is like their own sweetheart. Borrowing a car is not a problem. The problem is that you accidentally crashed the car while riding it. Do you think the other party will ask you to pay for it? How much compensation is appropriate?
2.Do not impose your own thoughts on others
Everyone has different preferences for cars, just like some people like SRAM and some people like Shimano, the different feel also attracts different fans.
This is not only for beginner riders, some riders who have been riding for a period of time also often do this kind of thing. In fact, this is nothing in itself, but some people like to add oil and vinegar, for example, your accessories are more expensive, your matching is unreasonable, Merida is not as good as Giant, etc.
What you like and what you think is good does not represent the other party’s thoughts, so not imposing your own thoughts on others is the most basic respect.
3.Only ride a bike but don’t care about life
Cycling friends first met because of riding a bicycle. When someone rides with you, it doesn’t mean that they will tell you everything about him. Therefore, even if you have a particularly good relationship with a cycling friend, don’t ask others about their lives.
Distance produces beauty, which is useful everywhere.
4.Don’t keep thinking about rushing to the front
Some riders who have just participated in cycling may not be good at understanding the situation of the cycling team, so they are easy to rush to the front of the team on a whim.
But in fact, in cycling, experienced riders are often at the front and rear of the team. For group travel, the allocation of personnel needs to be adjusted according to the situation of the team, not to show individual physical fitness.
5.not bad debts
Generally, everyone is on the AA system for going out. Occasionally, I will meet some people who are happier than anyone else when eating, eat more than anyone else, and can always slip away when it is time to pay the bill.
6.follow traffic rules
You don’t even care about your own safety, and you may even threaten the safety of others. Who would want to ride with such a rider? Running traffic lights, riding side-by-side, and speeding through crowded roads are all very offensive.
Every group has its own rules, if you must be a maverick in a group, then I don’t think any club is suitable for you. You can communicate any dissatisfaction, but it is your fault to spread negative energy
8.Learn some basic maintenance and repair methods
For daily riding, we need to know some basic bicycle debugging and maintenance methods, such as brake adjustment, bicycle maintenance after rainy days, etc.
Only by mastering some skills can we go out to ride with more peace of mind.
