If the bike is very dirty to begin with this passage: power wash the bike, but be careful not to use a powerful setting. You want to avoid setting performance, because you can change the color of the bike-chip.
Then spray the product on all sides of the bicycle, which can be dirty. Shout it works well for this step because they do not exhaust the bike while trying to clean. It is therefore necessary to wait 10 minutes after using the pressure washer before moving on to the next step.

Tip 2: Ignore the average speed
Most cyclists have a small computer with a bike that the average speed, distance, and so shows. It’s nice to have information, but your goal is to minimize travel or the average speed as high as possible.
The objective is to (a) to have fun and (b) increase the general level of skills on a bike.Sometimes you have to feel comfortable and at other times a bit tired. You must be round with a couple of miles to slow “warm” to begin.

Modern thought is that the best way to improve your skills in 90% of the time driving at speeds slow enough (not very nice, though) with great difficulty, to move the remaining 10% of the time.
This is usually done, even with the so-called intervals. The general idea is that the cycle is very difficult for a short time, then spend a few minutes by bike as he is slowly recovering and is again difficult to obtain … and so on.
The length of each different tribe, but one minute hard work followed by five minutes of recovery would be a good starting point.
Remember, you have 15 minutes warm-up before starting intervals drive.
