We often find ourselves needing to recharge mentally when we reach the winter. We are looking for something else to do. It is also a good time to switch it up and focus on other muscle groups. Improving other muscle groups can help to improve stability and control on the bike.
Working on postural muscles is a plus. We really don’t work on this during cycling but we stress those muscles. Look to nordic skiing, walking, or some other load bearing sport.
It’s ok to do something different in January.
