Product Description

Review

Graeme is a genius in the true sense of the word. His uncanny ability to tackle problems from an angle that no-one else could have thought of, makes him a one-off. An original. He sees the world in a different way to us mere mortals and comes up with ideas and solutions which make you laugh, shake your head and say 'why didn't I think of that?! --Sir Chris Hoy, multiple Olympic cycling champion<br ><br >The Obree Way is a one stop shop for all cyclists particularly those with a new or renewed passion for the sport and contains a huge breadth and depth of knowledge and understanding - but is written for the layman or woman - like a novel, not jargon laden, not trying to sell new improved products...And the tips laid out in this book made him great. The knowledge here is extraordinary. --John Beattie, broadcaster and former Scotland Rugby International and British

Remarkably readable... the training manual is classic Obree - --Scotland on Sunday

a mixture of no-nonsense insight and ideas - quite simply - to make you a better cyclist. British riders will want to pay particular attention to Chapter 4 - 'The Turbo Session' --Velo Club Don Logan

Bought this book with modest expectations ( There are so many books written on the topic of training ) Really pleasantly surprised, its just a good read. G.O. has clearly put the same amount of effort and approach into this book as he puts into his training. He writes well and says it as he sees it. 90% of his to the point advice would easily be corroborated by the 100 other training related books and experts. The difference is that this is a fun book to read, it delivers much good advice and avoids B.S. I may not follow every suggestion, but I'll know that by ignoring some of this I'm less likely to get faster. Recommend this book for any serious cyclist who are interested in how training really works. Best of all you don't need a PhD in exercise physiology to get something from this book.

I bought the original, autographed, edition sometime ago and now this new version for my Kindle. Re-read it with pleasure and will probably do it again! To say the author 'knows his stuff' would be an understatement of the year - you are buiyng a bit of cycling history with this book. Although largely aimed at competitive cyclists, many tips and techniques apply to everyone on two wheels who just wants to go a little faster. Refreshingly, no 'training schedule' or 'plan' in sight.
A great, inspiring read for all interested in the discipline and an insight into the mind of one of cycling greats.

Personally I would say that this is not so much a training manual, more a collection of training philosophies. Don't expect to open this book and learn exactly what you should be doing and when; it doesn't tell you (and to be fair, one underlying point Graham makes is that what is good for one person isn't necessarily good for all)... The problem is that despite reading and re-reading I'm not entirely sure what I should be doing... It says a 7 day training period isn't optimum but doesn't really say what is better... I think it recommends that you should do a hard turbo session at the beginning of each period, but I'm not entirely sure... Etc etc.

Each chapter is basically written as one long section of prose, which does make it more enjoyable to read (I pretty much read it cover to cover in one session; always a sign of a well written book), but that means it doesn't work as a quick reference guide (you can't flick through it to check a minor detail for instance).

Basically its a fun quirky book that will stay in my collection, but isn't like to get read or referenced very often.

If you are interested in cycling at any level this is a very good book. If you are about to buy a bike it has constructive non commercially orientated advice, if you are a keen club cyclist it is stacked with practical non commercialised advice. He points out simple things that the manufacturers ad men might have you believe no longer apply, for example "the laws of physics have not changed" and on aerodynamics and materials for frame design (I won't say which material he refers to here "...they tend to be very blobby". Written in a style that is down to earth and comprehendable Graham Obree has achieved something here that few training manuals achieve, accessible and understandable information to the non medically trained reader and I guess of great interest to the medically trained.

The book is written from a base of knowledge and experience that few can rival and the best part for me is he clearly has no agenda to sell. He just wants to add value to your cycling experience whether you are a cyclist or an armchair fan or someone who wants to learn more about the subject.

Really enjoyed the book, some different outlooks to things but I liked them and have used some of the ideas. Might go and do his sportive the Flying Scotsman to try and meet the guy, although I did see him at the Hoy 100 September 7th 2014 riding with Sir Chris Hoy. Thanks Mr Obree for such a truthful and open approach to training, I can definatly relate to things you say and have adopted some of the ideas.

Great read , a wealth of knowledge generously given from the technical riding sections on breathing and pedalling techniques to the psychological aspects of cycling

Bought for my brother-in-law, who is into his cycling, big time.
Apparently, Graeme Obree has some quirky ways regarding training techniques for cyclists, so go on guys, buy a copy of this book today, then you can enter the next Tour De France!
Seriously, from information received, this book looks like a good read for all serious cyclists.

If you are looking for some sound, proven and unbiased advice then buy this book. Obree is a true hero of the sport and offers up his tips and tricks for getting the most out of yourself in a real and holistic way. If you are looking for stats and numbers then you will be disappointed. What the book gives, in real terms, are the logical steps (along with the necessary ingredients) to take you from an enthusiast playing a guessing game to a competitive racer grounded by 'Obree's Principles'.
