First of all, we have to clarify the concept that people aged 60 have already begun to enter the old age stage. But when human body skills begin to age, people are not suitable for high-intensity exercise all the time.
Therefore, it is best not to ride for a long time for a 60-year-old.
So, what’s the best time for a 60-year-old to ride?
Generally, April to October is the best period. From the perspective of climate, subtropical monsoon climate, temperate zone monsoon climate, and temperate marine climate are the most suitable for cycling. The recommended cities are Yunnan, Chengdu, Guangdong, Hangzhou, and even all sunny but You can ride anywhere that is not sweltering.
Riding in the rainy season is not recommended, such as some Xishuangbanna living in tropical rainforest climate areas and riders who intend to ride in this climate are not recommended to ride. One is that the road conditions will be unclear when riding in the rainy season; the other is that there will be many tropical creatures when riding in the tropical rainforest, such as the mang in the Amazon Basin. The third is that riding in the rainy season tends to deplete body skills, burden the body’s resistance, and easily cause colds, fevers, dizziness and colds.
It is not recommended to ride when exposed to the sun. Similar to the Sichuan-Tibet line area, strong ultraviolet rays will cause sunburn on the surface of the skin, damage the stratum corneum of the skin, and cause water shortage and dryness.
It is best for people over 60 years old to ride for about 1 hour a day, that is, about 10 kilometers, which can achieve the purpose of exercising. If it exceeds this time, it will cause physical exhaustion and even hypoxia.
When a 60-year-old cyclist is physically exhausted, he should pay attention to rest, replenish energy in time, and exercise in moderation.
But the above is for ordinary cyclists over 60~ If you are a cyclist, that is, you have always been a cyclist who mainly rides, then you can go 50-80 kilometers, or even more than 100 kilometers. Mainly depends on the physique! When your body doesn’t feel tired, you can ride all the time.
All riding time and scientific explanations can vary from person to person, and each person’s physique is different, so it cannot be generalized.
At the same time, whether you are an ordinary cyclist or a cyclist, you need to combine work and rest. If you ride 5 days a week, you should choose 1-2 days to rest to promote the recovery of your physical skills, which is to give us The body is fully charged.
