What do I need to Know About Purchasing Cycling shoes?

Posted by Shift Cycle Wear on 2/12/2014

When you ride your bicycle you are transferring energy from your feet to the pedals and that energy propels your bike forward. That’s why buying the correct footwear to use for riding is an important decision and there are many factors you need to keep in mind while shopping.


Remember, your shoes must fit well and feel like they’re an extension of your foot. The shoes you buy for walking or running need extra room in the toes to allow for the rolling motion of your foot. Not so with cycling shoes. Also make sure they grip your heel and the middle part of your foot firmly once they are fastened on.

Cycling Jerseys: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly!!

Posted by Shift Cycle Wear on 2/3/2014
There are tons of cycling jersey designs out there, some that you love to look
 you wouldn't be caught dead in. Jersey designers need to remember that the jerseys they come up
 at and others

New to Cycling? Start with the Basics

Posted by Shift Cycle Wear on 11/28/2013

Thinking of taking up cycling? Great!!! So, now that you have your brand new bike and some smart new gear from www.shiftcyclewear.com  you’re ready to get started. But before you get out there, here are a few facts to keep in mind. 

Keep your eyes on the road up ahead, and that’s where your bike will head. Keep your eyes on the curb you’re trying to avoid and chances are that’s where you’ll end up. Especially when you’re negotiating turns. When you’re pushing your pedals, think of a circular motion with your feet. If you’re stomping down on them, that really isn't going to give you a smooth ride. And while on the subject of pedals, let’s talk about the clipless pedals you should use. The practicality behind this idea is that your foot won’t be sliding off the pedals and you can push more easily. And that also means you’ll tire less easily.
