Or perhaps you're a seasoned racer who is seeking ways to become stronger and faster. Whatever the case, you will be well served by Ed Pavelka's comprehensive guide, which takes the reader on a highly readable ride through road cycling--from the basics of handling and maintenance to the subtle intricacies of racing. Instead of asking the reader to take his word on every subject, Pavelka has gathered a cast of Olympians and renowned mechanics to tackle whichever topic reflects his or her strongest suit. Besides the basics, chapters also include in-depth advice on sprinting, hill climbing, using heart monitors effectively, training indoors during the wintry months, and even surviving your commute in the concrete jungle. If that's not enough, Pavelka has devoted an entire section to medical concerns, including overtraining, sore knees, and saddle sores. --Ben Tiffany Review “In this book are all the basic techniques and skills we use in pro road racing, translated for fast recreational riders.” — Ron Kiefel, former pro cyclist “ Bicycling magazine has assembled the most comprehensive book about road cycling in recent years. Everything you need to know about this wonderful sport is clearly presented and easy to put to use.” — Alex Stieda, first North American to lead the Tour de France “Cycling is a sport to be enjoyed for a lifetime. Learn from the experts, test your limits, then go explore the world.” — Karen Kurreck, former world time trial champion From the Back Cover Bicycling Magazine'sComplete Book of Road Cycling Skills Take your road cycling to the next level with the newest techniques, equipment, and skills from the leading magazine in the sport.
