    I bought this book thinking it would teach me to ride a 100 mile event That was not the case This book is about using biking to both lose weight, to modify your life, your diet and to mature into old age fit This book addresses everything from training styles to diets It also advises of the dangers of biking and how to prevent biking injuries I recommend this book to anyone that is middle aged, looking to improve their level of fitness and lifestyle through the use of cycling There is one drawback Some advise is given through the use of stories and personal experience.Use what you can an bypass the long stories Great book.

    At 67, I continue to average over 4000 miles annually, with 95% on the road, mostly touring and local loops As a former runner with nagging overuse injuries whenever my runs exceed about 30 minutes, this is thorough, spot on advice Perhaps it s much than I wish to do, but if you follow 10 30 percent of his advice, you will feel better, round out your fitness, and increase your riding comfort I m not out to race anyone just enjoy my riding.

    Good book I m 62 and riding since retired from the building trades It talks about keeping in shape , what to eat , lift weights, basically exercise your ass off to keep in shape for riding All the books tell you that I ve also got COPD and bicycle riding definitely helps expand your lungs , makes you breathe much easier and keeps your joints moving , puts spring in your step I skip all the graphs, and it gets detailed , but I TRY to do what they say Very Satisfied.

    I liked the information about exercising and risk of bone loss if your only exercise is spinning Some of the case histories were not that interesting All in all I found it full of useful information.
