Excellent insights into becoming a better cyclist, not only technically on the bike, but also, fueling and building your body for maximum performance. I’ve been preparing for my first century ride next year, so I learned a lot. Highly recommended.

Useful book for novice and beginner cyclists and those wanting a bicycle exercise plan to assist in weight loss. Has exercise plans for outdoor cycling on a road or mountain bike and for indoor workouts on a stationary bike. Has exercise suggestions for becoming a stronger cyclist. I found the suggested outdoor bike workouts and drills the most helpful feature of the book (especially the HIIT and Tabata). Also, I appreciated the exercise suggestions.

The book is easy to read and well organized. T

It's a fine book if your goal is to use a bicycle primarily as an exercise tool along with a diet plan (a seemingly thorough one is discussed in the book). My use for a bicycle is one of transportation and occasional recreation so I wish the chapters regarding repair and preventive maintenance was more thorough.
It's the book you might want if you would like an outdoorsy alternative to a crowded gym.

Of course to make this work, I do have to get on the bike more and not just read. Good information, much that I already know, just need a kick-start into action. This has enough to help you be successful at riding.

Interesting if you have a certain level of fitness to begin with. You might have to work up to what the authors want you to achieve.

Most of the book consisted of things I already knew, but it was nice to have a refresher. I also enjoy the adaptations of outdoor rides to indoor.

Loved it! Have I biked my butt off? No. The only thing this book lacks is some sort of aperatus to force me onto the bike.
