Embrace autumn: 5 reasons to treasure the season

Autumn officially arrived on September 1 meteorologically, and astronomically on the 21st of the same month. Despite the tradition of stowing away bikes during this season, there are compelling reasons to continue cycling. Here are five.

1. The racing season isn't over yet

While many road bike gran fondos have concluded, there are still races for MTB and gravel bike enthusiasts. The beach season is also approaching, providing ample opportunities for competitive events. Sportives also abound in the fall.

2. The weather is still beautiful

Early autumn often brings pleasant weather, ideal for cycling. Take advantage of these moments, as indoor training will become more prevalent in the coming months. While the mornings and evenings may be cooler, the quieter bike paths offer a more enjoyable riding experience.

3. Quieter roads

As the fair-weather cyclists dwindle, the roads become less congested. Enjoy your favorite routes without the need to navigate through crowds. Success is practically guaranteed.

4. In autumn, nature is at its most beautiful

Embrace the stunning colors of autumn as leaves fall and trees change hues weekly. The beauty of this season enhances the cycling experience.

5. Changing the senses

Autumn invites a shift in focus, emphasizing quality over quantity. With shorter days, there's less evening training time, providing opportunities for diverse activities, from MTB'ing and gravel racing to beach rides or alternative sports. It's a time to slow down and savor the changing season, perhaps while making plans for the future.

Explore beyond the road bike, savor the diversity of autumn, and embrace the change!
