“During my 5th month of pregnancy, I felt in really great shape, so I went riding one weekend with 2 friends. Over 2 days, we rode 140 km, taking it easy. I was lucky enough to have some electrical assistance, which allowed me to keep up a good pace. But I often set the tempo: as soon as I got tired, even 2 km from the end, we took a break. No need to suffer - a 10-minute rest or a piece of candy or two can really help. The goal wasn't to cover the most distance, but to ride together,” explains Clotilde.
What you should remember is to adapt your activity and listen to your body. Slow down, hydrate well and eat right, and stay accessible and at a reasonable distance from home in case of any issues. Jeanne also recommends "stand up as you ride when you can, to avoid vibrations" and "avoid busy roads" and "too technical areas."
Carole tells us: “I kept riding normally up to my 5th month, with rides from 50 to 120 km. I just took pee breaks more often than usual, and I avoided riding with too much intensity.” For easier pee breaks, avoid straps.
