Cycling is the best resolution to make this year count. Let us explain why and how Cannondale can help you.
A healthy mind in a healthy body. It’s a wisdom of the ages. In this day and age where there is so much going on around us, it is even more crucial than ever before. Make a healthy mind and a healthy body your resolution. Cycling, in all its shapes and forms, is the way to relax the mind and keep the body healthy. You can do both at the same time whether you choose to ride on open roads or challenging gravel, climb a high mountain or win a race, cruise on the beach or commute to work. Double the fun, half the effort.
Every day is a new opportunity to start your resolution to ride more. We are here to help you with that since cycling is in our DNA. We have crafted the bike finder quiz and developed the Cannondale app to make cycling easier and more meaningful to you.
Here’s what you need to do to make this year count by using the power of cycling.
Find the perfect bike. The one for you.
You’re wondering what you need to start riding? Well, you can make it as fancy as your heart desires but, in the end, all you need is a bike and a helmet [healthy mind in a safe body].
We know and love bikes and we understand that there is a lot to choose from. Mountain bikes, road bikes, gravel bikes, electric bikes. Uphill, downhill, smooth surfaces or challenging gravel sectors. It can all be a bit overwhelming but our advice to you is to follow your heart, your intuition. We think you know best what suits you but we are here to offer some guidance.
Our engineers made sure there is a bike for everyone and our website displays all the bikes, colorways and specs. Our bikes are perfectly built to serve your specific goals to tend to your mind and body. We’ve created the bikefinder so we can match you with not just any bike but the perfect bike, the one for you.
Take the bikefinder quiz and get your bike.
Track your rides with Cannondale app.
Have you ever done a ride but forgot to track the kilometers and then it felt like you didn’t even do it? We know how that feels. The same way we know that sticking to your resolution means pedaling and seeing the proof by tracking your rides - the slow ones, the fast ones, the short ones, any ride for that matter.
That’s why we have created your bike’s best friend, the Cannondale app that automatically logs your ride activity, has every detail about your bike and can even remind you when it’s time for a tune-up.
Seeing the evidence of how many kilometers you pedaled, how fast you went, how high you climbed and how many calories you burnt will motivate you to keep on riding.
And if you forget again to track your ride, then our Wheel Sensor comes to the rescue with its hyper-accuracy that automatically records rides upon movement, no need to press any buttons.
Ride. Record. Repeat. You got this!
Reduce your carbon footprint by riding more.
A meaningful resolution is the strongest resolution. Every day we ride bikes instead of driving cars, we do not only look after our well-being, we also look after the well-being of our planet.
We’re serious about sustainability and reducing our impact on the planet, that’s why having the Cannondale app and logging your rides will automatically show you how much carbon footprint you reduce with every kilometer.
Via a simple but eye-opening graphic, our app will strengthen your resolution and motivate you to ride more because reducing your carbon footprint means choosing your bike over and over again.
It’s easy to believe doing something for the environment is too big for a single person, that we need bigger steps forward, that you yourself are not enough. But that’s not true. You play your own unique part and you’ve done it by choosing cycling.
Fresh air is good for you and it is good for fresh air. Think about that one!
