Hey everyone, I am a Cycling Newbie and therefore have zero fitness, especially as I was very ill several years ago to the point it has literally taken me years to recover. Now I'm in remission, up until now my exercise has been walking. I now have a bike and even though I was at first very ill from the strain it put on my body, I've been building up my stamina and I *love* cycling. I never had a bike as a kid and the better I get at it, the more it feels like flying. One issue I'm having is (are?) hills. My area is very hilly so I'm very limited in where I can cycle. There is not a single hill I can cycle up. There is *one* where I can get about halfway up, another that is so steep that my legs physically do not have the pushing power to get up even part of the way, and I haven't even bothered with the third because it's steep *and* long. These are tiny baby hills, not mountains, I'm just a total wimp. So, with that in mind, **does anybody know of any strength exercises (other than squats) that do not require equipment that I can do indoors to help with getting up hills?** Squats are boring me to tears right now lmao so if there's anything else I could do that'd be great. **Also, please do not tell me to push through the hills -- due to the nature of my illness, if my body is under too much strain I will throw up and faint, not necessarily in that order,** (and no, it's not because of a lack of hydration or heat, I know my body) and I don't want to do that on a nice hard road where cars can happily run me over while unconscious. I've been gradually able to stay on the bike for longer but haven't pushed too hard on hills because I found this out very quickly the hard way. (Apologies if this is answered in the "READ FIRST" in the sidebar, I got a 404.) **ETA** -- Also wanted to ask, does anyone find they get really bad headaches if they miss a day of riding? I'm not sure if that's an Echospite's-illness thing or if it's a thing that's common. It's bizarre.

I usually bike outside and own a CAAD9 and have all the gear for biking outside but am now looking to get some indoor biking equipment which I can connect to zwift. I am looking at the kinetic road machine as an option. I would like to hear opinions from people who already own it or have similar indoor biking equipment. My questions are specifically under the following Does kinetic road machine connect to zwift? How has your experience been with it so far? Is it really as quiet as the advertisement shows? Is there a better alternative out there for indoor biking equipment as compared to kinetic road machine under a similar price range? Would getting it second hand be fine? What are some of the things I should look out for if I do plan to get it second hand

Hey guys, I need advice for some equipment so i can be aware of my HR Zones and T Power for base training. I've been looking at the Garmin 25 with the attachments of a heart rate monitor and a cadence sensor. Then I found out about the Garmin Forerunner 35 Watch. Seems this may work too and i may have the functionality of using it as a watch as well. Is there anything else i should be considering? I don't want to spend more than $350 for everything if possible. With so many choices and having a blind discerning opinion, i just wanted some input on your experiences of recommendations before i made my final decision. Thanks

I've had my bike for 4 years in Minnesota before moving to Colorado a few weeks ago when I got my first two flats. My first ride in Colorado I blew my front tire, my second ride I got a slow leaking flat on the rear. I used to ride with a partner who could always ride back, grab a car and save me, but now I've realized I need to be prepared for flats on solo rides. Is the best gear a flat repair kit? Should I have an extra tube? Should I splurge for an established kit or will a $20 one from Amazon work just fine? What equipment do you guys carry? Where do you carry it?

Does anyone have a recommendation for a website that ships to the US and has good clearance deals on bike equipment? Specifically I'm looking for an aero wheelset, and hoping to find deals on last years models, etc

Your input is preferred; however, references to threads related to this question are sufficient. Please and thank you! Also: I’m looking to get into cycling mostly for fitness, weight loss and leisure, but the prospect of competing is always on the table.

Hello there. I work in industrial company and I don't have one work place so I have to carry my gear with me. I have to carry work helmet and shoes, in general gear is about 8kg (backpack with meals and drinks included). I know that there are a lot of different baskets but I'd like to ask you which ones would help me commuting best. This stuff takes a lot of space. Mostly I ride bike paths on road bike. Which basket is the most convenient for heavy stuff? How does it influence steering and balance? Any other tips appreciated

I've got 2 water bottles, some snacks to bring and I'm planning to buy some inner tubes, tools, etc in case of flats. The only thing that (I think) I'm missing is cycling sunglasses. I have eye glasses but prescription sunglasses right now are sorta out of my budget. Is it safe to ride without sunglasses? I've mainly been riding on trails and ive gotten dust in my eye but it's relatively safe because no cars. I'm not so sure if getting dust in my eye will be safe while im riding on this trip. Anyone want to share their experience?

I recently got into cycling and while I would love to support my LBS, funds have me restricted to finding the cheapest deals I can online. I recently picked up a couple items from the nashbar site, Giro Helmet, Nashbar saddle, Nashbar handlebar type, and cheap riding shorts. I am a brand new rider who is just trying out cycling and have only done 20 mile rides max so far. If I continue to enjoy it I will sink more money eventually. The reviews on all the products I bought seemed fairly positive, will I be disappointed? Does their shipping really take 7-10 days?

I'm looking at purchasing a rear rack and panniers on Amazon and am curious if anyone has experience with Ibera as a brand? The reviews on the models I'm planning on buying(?) are great, but I'm wondering if anyone here has a different opinion? Thanks for any input!
