Drink lots of water
Hydrate baby! There is nothing more important than fluid intake during a hot summer day, especially while exercising. Therefore, prepare yourself well. Fill multiple water bottles, or stop during your ride to replenish your water bottle. Even if you are not thirsty during your ride, drink, drink, drink! Do you want to prepare yourself even better? Then make sure you are well hydrated before you get on your bike.

Keep eating
Just like continuing to drink, continuing to eat is also of great importance. During cycling, you can burn as much as 650 calories in one hour. It is therefore important to keep replenishing your energy, think of gingerbread or a sports bar.

Start early
Not a morning bird? Time to become one! On hot summer days, it is a struggle for your body to perform. Try moving your workout to the morning. In the morning, it is often a lot cooler, and you can push yourself to your limits. This way you do not have to adjust your training, and you can enjoy a pleasant temperature. Two birds with one stone!

Let your body get used to it
Is exercising in the morning not a perfect time? Understandable! Then try to let your body get used to the heat. It takes a lot of energy to exercise in warm temperatures. Therefore, train with a lower intensity, or shorten your daily ride. This way, you give your body the space to get used to the warm temperatures. Caution! Only increase the intensity of your ride, or the length of your ride, after you have trained several times in warm temperatures. One day is not enough. Set a limit and above all listen to your body. Take care of your body!

Wear light colors
We do not need to tell you anymore that it is better not to wear black in the summer. But, do you know the reason? Dark colors absorb sunlight, which causes dark objects to heat up. That is exactly what we do not want. Wearing light clothing actually reflects sunlight, keeping light objects nice and cool. The solution for hot days!

Focus on your recovery
But most important: recovery. With a brightly colored outfit, well-stocked water bottles and enough food in your pocket, you are not there yet. The real work starts when you get off the bike. During a hot ride, your body has worked extremely hard. This means, sweating! Yes, yes, you sweat more, so your body can cool down. But, your heart also has to pump harder to get rid of the heat. Give your body some extra love after your workout. Take your rest, eat a healthy and well-supplemented meal with enough carbohydrates and protein, and drink plenty of water for the rest of the day. Recovery is key.

We would like to introduce a new ambassador: the enthusiastic Bart! A fanatic runner, but nowadays, he also likes to get on his bike. Of course, we are very curious how Bart experienced the ambassador day. Let's ask him!

"Sometimes all the pieces of the puzzle fall into place at once. In the week that the ambassadors' day was planned, I was not yet part of this cool sports brand. A few days before the event, I received a message whether I could participate as a male stand-in. When you are asked something like that, you do not say no, of course. I myself had not worn anything of this sportswear before. A good time to get acquainted. After the Rogelli van drove into the parking lot, I first got to try on some different sizes of running clothes. After a fashion show on the parking lot, we could start. Together with Margriet, Maura and Sjoukje we were filmed and photographed all morning for all kinds of new, cool content. You will surely have seen it passing by on one of our Instagram accounts.

We started at Houtse Meer with a briefing. A whole scenario had already been drawn up in advance. After the briefing, we started at Houtse Meer and ended at a small harbor. During this shoot the focus was on 'Enjoy Together': fun, together, enjoying what makes us happy, working out together! And why is it that sometimes all the pieces of the puzzle fall into place at once? One week after this fun day, I could officially call myself a Rogelli Ambassador. ENJOY TOGETHER."

Welcome to the team, Bart. With your sociability, enthusiasm and willpower, we can proudly call you an ambassador of Rogelli!
