Top 5 Road Cycling Resolutions for 2016



Are you ready for 2016? What are your cycling New Year resolutions? At Scicon Bags we have put together our top 5 to make sure we get out on our bikes more, get fitter and healthier. Let us know in the comments what yours are!


Cycle to work




If you don’t do this already, you should. You’ll build up your fitness, save money and it’s better for the environment! You’ll also turn up to work full of energy and endorphins! Make sure you equip yourself with a Scicon saddlebag for all your riding essentials. 


Ride in a group




This saves power, keeps you motivated and is a good way to socialize with people who share your passion for cycling. The coffee stops are good too! 

Don’t have any friends who cycle? Join a club if you haven’t already- here’s bound to be one near you! And so as not to irritate any of your fellow riders, make sure you carry your own puncture repair kit, microtools and energy bars! Scicon have a wide range of saddlebags and accessories available here

Do this by the end of January so that you have plenty of time to train! There are lots of sportives and Gran Fondos around the world of varying difficulty to choose from. Our Favourites are- 

Cape Town Cycle Tour

Haute Route


Marcialonga Cycling Craft

Tour of Good Hope

When you’re training for the event, make sure that you set goals and build up to it so that you enjoy it when you get there.

Make sure that if your sportive is abroad you pack your bike safely into a Scicon Bike Bag or Case- If you’re flying the best options are the AeroComfort 2.0 TSA bike bag and the AeroTech Evolution TSA bike box. Also, you’ll need a decent-sized saddle bag, we have over 20 models of different sizes, colours and material for you to choose from here
