Ride Your Way Lean advocates cycling as an exercise and lifestyle choice to lean up. It begins with very basic information: why cycling, how to buy a bike, equipment - and my fear was that it would be too simplistic for my needs. It gets a bit more helpful though, with good discussions of basic nutrition, eating plans, ride plans, indoor trainer exercises, off-bike exercises and other goodies.

I would recommend this book to somebody who's considering or just getting into cycling. For more seasone
Great book if you are starting out as a cyclist or want to lose a lot of weight. Not so great if you already cycle a lot.
Informative, motivating!

This book had all the answers to my question, because I want to lose more weight and buy a bicycle for next season. The book went into strength training, nutrition, indoor training for the winter months, buying cloths, bicycle and component selection for the heavy weights like me.

Simple examples, motivational stories and good advice make this a great companion for losing weight on a bike. Not a diet plan, but good information for making better food choices. Cycling can burn calories fast. Improve your results with the tips and information from this book.
Can't give it a 5 just yet, I need to see how pratical the schedules are to my real life. It was a very quick read, can't wait to get out and try the interval plans. Nice to know I am doing some things right, but just need to tweak.
Not a bad book. It was encouraging all the way through, but I felt it lacked in the training section. The workout plans could use a little better explanation. I think I can figure them out though.
Good information, good sense and no gimmicks.
Ride your way lean with and hour a day of exercise and eating right.
Does have some nice training plans and ideas for indoor trainer rides.
really enjoying this book...lots of great tips & suggestions...a must-read for anyone interested in the cycling...reading more of it while on vacation
This is a great book because it has something for everyone at all levels of cycling proficiency. Now if I could just follow her advice and get back on my bike!
decent read, informative...but not what I was looking for. I like biking for exercise but not dressing it with a lot of gear.

Didn't expect to like this book as much as I did. I loved the plans and the science, as well as the testimonials!
Common sense tips, but I may consider buying this book as a reminder of what to do in the off-season.
