How to Burn More Calories While Biking

Summer is around the corner and suddenly, binge watching Friends on Netflix and scarfing down family-sized bags of Doritos in a single serving doesn’t seem as good of an idea as it did in the cold months of Winter. Well, have no fear because we have the perfect solution to help cut out some of those extra calories without the dread of actually going to the gym. Although we do love our Doritos (and let’s be real, Nacho Cheese is the best flavor), taking care of our health goes beyond physical appearance. Exercising regularly strengthens the cardiovascular system, speeds up metabolism, and greatly reduces the risk of developing certain types of diseases such as cancer and diabetes.

So, you’re probably thinking, what is this “magic” solution you guys are trying to propose here? It definitely isn’t magic, but bike riding is fun, affordable, and accessible to all ages!

That’s right! What if I told you that burning hundreds of calories could be fun and exciting? And could be done practically anywhere! Central Park? It’s gorgeous in the summertime. Brooklyn Bridge? Absolutely. That creepy, abandoned playground in your neighborhood? Sure, why not!

The key to burning the most calories while bike riding is to switch up the intensity throughout your workout. High-intensity interval training has been proven to maximize your calorie burn in a shorter amount of time. So, try alternating between your comfortable riding speed to a faster, more challenging speed in order to get your heart rate up and down. For example, say your average riding speed is about 12 mph. In a high-intensity interval bike ride, you would ride at 12 mph for one minute and then raise the intensity to 15 mph for 30 seconds. After 30 seconds, drop your speed back to 12 mph for another minute and repeat for 5-10 minutes. You can track your speed using a portable speedometer or download one of the many apps available on your phone! As you build your endurance, gradually increase the intensity of your training, as well.

Another way to burn more calories when outdoor biking is by incorporating inclines in your ride. Rather than only riding on a flat terrain, challenge yourself with some steep, uphill inclines in order to raise that heart rate and burn more calories. Riding uphill can be a bit of a challenge for some, so we recommend starting off by conditioning yourself with smaller hills and working your way up to the mountains! You would be surprised how quickly your body can adapt to the training!

Outdoor cycling is a great workout, overall, to burn calories, lose weight, and even build muscle in your lower body. The best part of outdoor cycling is being able to sightsee the world around you as you ride along. The adventure in the ride almost makes you forget that you’re actually exercising!

Not sure if biking is right for you? Here at Unlimited Biking, we have countless locations where you can rent Cannondale bikes, one of the best names in the bike industry, for a short ride to see if outdoor biking is a right fit.

Facts about the Golden Gate Bridge

Today we would like to present you some interesting facts about one of the most famous bridges in the world – the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. It’s not a secret anymore, our new store in San Francisco is open and that’s why you should know a few interesting facts before you cycle the bridge. Let’s start.

1993 was the year in which the construction finally began: After a long time of setbacks and fundraising, Strauss and his team finally broke ground on the bridge on January 5, 1933. It was a big event with a parade to Crissy Field. At least 100,000 people attended the celebration.

And we also found out that the Golden Gate Bridge and the Brooklyn Bridge in New York have something in common. Its cables were made by the same company that built the Brooklyn Bridge. Strauss needed cables that would be strong enough to support the structure of the bridge and bend 27 feet laterally in the Gate’s high winds. So he turned to the experts: Roebling’s Sons Co. – they made the cables for the Brooklyn Bridge 52 years earlier and knew exactly what to do.

Safety was super important! Strauss spent a ton of money on safety. On average one person was killed per million dollar spent on a big project. But Strauss wanted to beat those numbers and wanted all workers to wear glare free goggles, use hand and face cream to protect the skin from the high winds and go on special diets that should fend off dizziness. They also installed a net under the bridge that cost $130,000. It helped to speed constructions and gave the workers a feeling of safety. The net was an awesome idea, it saved 19 men who otherwise would have plummeted into to water below.

The colors of the bridge should be original carbon gray, aluminium or black and the U.S. Navy wanted black with yellow stripes. But at the end Irving Morrow (Consulting architect and responsible for the bridge’s Art Deco look) didn’t want any of those colors. Of course, the bridge was instead painted international orange, because it fits in better with the surroundings and it offers excellent visibility in San Francisco’s legendary fog.

After 4 years of contractions the opening was big. The people celebrate it for a whole week. The Golden Gate Bridge Fiesta lasted from May 27 to June 2. Opening day was “Pedestrian Day” and 15,000 people an hour went through the turnstiles, each paying 25 cents to cross. Vendors set up along the roadway sold an estimated 50,000 Hot Dogs. At noon on May 28, FDR pressed a telegraph key in the White House that announced the bridge’s opening to the entire world, and at 3 p.m. a fleet of 42 Navy ships sailed under the bridge; the day was capped off by a fireworks display at 10 p.m.

And now the question is how much weighs such a bridge? When the bridge opened in 1937, the weight of the bridge along with its anchorages and approaches was 894, 500 tons. Re-decking in 1986 reduced the total weight to 887,000 tons.

Now you have all the background information and you’re ready to bike the Golden Gate Bridge with Unlimited Biking.

See ya in SanFran!

Ride an E-Bike: All the benefits

There are many reasons, why you should ride an E-Bike. Much people think that an E-Bike is just for old people but this is nonsense! An electric bike is so much fun and for people of all ages. Besides the extra boost, which you get with an E-Bike there are also other main reasons why you should use them. So read on!

First point is the physical health. This sounds weird, but no. It’s easy to explain: When you’re unhealthy, you end up spending a lot of time sick. And one of the reasons people get sick is because they have a lack of physical activity in their everyday life. By taking a bike or an electric bike to ride to work or school you’re getting the exercise you need to be healthy. And with an electric bike rather than a standard bike you won’t have to worry about showing up sweaty and disheveled. And it’s often a time saver. Use the bike lane to avoid the bumper-to-bumper traffic. Another thing is that you save money, because you don’t need to refuel your car so often.

Oh by the way, there is another good reason besides the savings on fuel. Actually you don’t have to worry about a parking spot anymore. The times where you accidentally park somewhere you weren’t supposed to or your meter runs out are over. With an E-Bike you only need a bike lock and a sturdy bike rack. And you can also save money here.

The next argument on our list is that you don’t need a gym membership. We all know the struggle is real – “should I go to the gym or maybe tomorrow or never?”. Yes this is the daily fight you may have with yourself, but with an E-Bike you can integrate the exercise in your everyday life. As we mentioned before, ride to work or school or to do the groceries shopping for example.

E-Bikes are good for the environment. This is another main reason, why you should use bikes or E-Bikes. Reducing carbon footprints and adopting a green lifestyle! An E-Bike reduces the overall pollution contributed by motor vehicles.

Fitness Biking: All our tips to be the best biker!

Improve your physical capabilities thanks to fitness biking! Here are our best recommendations and tips:

  • Safety First!

Before your training, check the condition of your equipment. Install rear view mirrors. Be aware of the weather forecast. Carry a cell phone and your ID. Bring food and water. Ride with your friends, if something happen someone will save you.

Always wear a helmet and sports glasses. Ride in a straight line and at safe speed. Be careful when you are riding your bike, stay focused. An accident can happen very quickly.

Stay visible at all time, use lights on your bike. Use also your bell to indicate your position. Be careful when changing lines or when you want to override, look before you turn. Also be careful when someone passes you, keep your distance.

Don’t get distracted. Do not wear earphones to hear music. If you want to listen music, choose a small bluetooth speaker that you can attach on your bike.

Keep your fingers on the brakes in case of emergency. Use the rear brake and front brake always together at the same time. Always look ahead. Do not use your phone, stay focused on your physical effort.

Drive in the same direction as other vehicles. Obey all the laws of the circulation. Keep your both hands on the handlebars. Pay attention to other drivers, and pedestrians.

  • The cycling diet

Eat more protein, free sugars and carbohydrates! Consume the right amount of calories for your body. When you are cycling you burn a lot of calories. Be sure to eat enough! Eat several small portion meal through the day. And avoid processed food. Eat good vitamins (Omega 3 and 6) and minerals (calcium, iron, zinc) to power up your body throughout the day. Drink enough water! Your body is made of 75% water so you must drink a lot to stay in good shape. 

Eat 90 minutes before you go biking, let your stomach digest. Energy bars and drinks are good during the efforts. For long rides we recommend you to eat more before and during the session.

After your ride, we recommend you to eat and drink. The first 20 minutes after the efforts are really important. This is the best time to eat. Do not eat to quickly and eat small portions but with high protein and calories.

  • Training sessions

Regular training allows your body to adapt and be in better shape. With the bike you will work every muscle in your body. To continue to progress, you must continually increase the difficulty of the exercises. You should either go further, or faster.

It should be known also that more frequent and short workouts are more effective than long sessions. So gradually you improve your fitness and you will then be able to do more without being exhausted. We recommend doing several daily workouts throughout the week. For example 1 training per day from 30 to 45 minutes.

Long sessions at a moderate pace are done to improve your physical endurance. You can also train on more steep terrain from 30 minutes to 1 hour, with alternating session with fast speed and moderate speed. This will strengthen up your muscles and will brought you more power for next training sessions. Intensive cycling training for 30 minutes is the final step! With intensive training session you will gain more muscles and develop new biking capabilities. Keep riding your bike daily and you will see the results! If you want to go further you can also sign up for bike competitions or book an intensive cycling course.

  • Rest!

Sleep is one of the most important part in recovery. Sleep enough, eight or nine hours per night. Do not watch screens at night, the light of the screens prevents you from falling asleep naturally, moreover, it damages the retina. Avoid also large meals near bedtime, digestion is more difficult with big meals. The harder it is, the more your body works. To sleep well we recommend eating small portions. You can take also several naps for 20 minutes throughout the day, naps are really good for your brain. It helps you to recover faster. For your wake, we advise you to wake up gently with a luminotherapy alarm clock. Light therapy helps your body and relaxes your mind. Having this type of awakening allows you to wake up in a softer way and be more relaxed during your training.

You can also relieve stress, with a massage or with Yoga and meditation. Active recovery is good for your body, you can do small exercises during the day to relax your muscles. Don’t forget to warm up well before and after the sport this is very important!
