Would you ride on a rest day? or would you stay in bed? Let us know in the comments 👇
Riders activity varies on a rest-day. Some like to go out and stretch their legs or go for a coffee, between 1-2 hour ride. Other riders prefer to do nothing.
The following day for riders can be a toss up between feeling refreshed and regenerate or feeling depleted and having empty/dead legs.
