How should you grip
Your grip needs to be light and relaxed. Think more about connecting with your handlebar grips rather than gripping them. Enough grip to have control of your bike and steering and not strangling the handlebar grips.
We are wanting you to rely on you core control to maintain your upper body position on the bike rather than propping yourself up by your grip and your arms.
This light relaxed grip needs to be maintained right throughout the duration of the ride….that means when you get tired…when you go up hills. These are times when you often without even noticing you start gripping those grips even harder. When you go riding be conscious of your grip you will amazed at what you start to notice/feel.
Grpping too hard and pulling on your handlebars can lead to discomfort in your arms shoulders, neck and back.
