3.0 out of 5 stars Book review 29 Jun 2010
The book is well written but is definitely aimed at new cyclists.
It tries to cover to much by including so many different types of bikes, if you're a road cyclist you'll just skip by the mountain biking downhill and cross, cyclocross and track sections. It doesn't go into enough detail on subjects, just a brief summary.
Unless you are a beginner I'd pass on it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy to follow tips 25 May 2009
This book is very easy to follow and though some information maybe basic for more experienced cyclists it is still important none the same . Reccommend to anyone starting out in cycling and has highlighted for me many areas where I can improve .

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Cycling Training Manual I've Found 26 Dec 2007
This really is a step up from authors like Friel or Carmichael for two reasons. Firstly its far better produced with a lot of full colour pictures and diagrams that really add to the message and also because its stuffed with good information on everything about the sport not just the physical training. So you'll find good pages on hand signals, group riding, tactics, time trialling etc. Overall its a far more inspiring and comprehensive look at the subject. Recommended.
