Cycling Glossary - Word of the Day

mass start

This describes when a group ride or race commences with everyone leaving the starting line at the same time. Most road and cross-country races have mass starts, and most century, charity and fun rides do too.

Joe's Daily Cycling Tip

Here's How To Master the Mud - Riding in mud is neither recommended nor good for your bike, but sometimes the ride or weather conditions force you to become a muck master. Skinny tires (1.7-inches wide or less) or treads that are designed specifically for mud will help. On the ride, before things jam up, stop, find a small stick and clean the mud from around your tires, brakes, derailleurs, etc. Cornering in the mud can be treacherous. Maintain control by using a more upright position and by not placing too much outward force on the tires. On climbs, remain seated as much as possible to eliminate tire spin. And, when you get home, clean your rig and check your brake pads and chain, parts that wear rapidly on muddy rides (it's a good idea to keep some new brake pads on hand in case yours wear out). Also, if you live in an area where riding in the mud is frequent and permitted, equip your bike with disc brakes (or consider a new bike with discs), as these outperform rim brakes in the muck.
