When you're new to road cycling, it's all too easy to get caught up in the excitement and rush out the door on your brand new road bike to tackle a monster ride...without any food...or spares...and with your helmet on backwards. In this video, Hank, Manon, and Conor share their top mistakes to avoid when you first get into cycling to make sure you don't end up bonking miles away from home with a flat tyre!
