The #1 cycling training book of all time.
on April 15, 2009
I bought this book (3rd edition) when I first started road cycling. I used the knowledge from this book to develop my own training plan and start racing. After applying the principles of this book, the results have been incredible, I went from being dropped on group rides to leading the pack and racing with great results. Joe Friel's training bible lays out your training regimen with the proper balance of intensity, duration and recovery to maximize results. I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking to break the limits of their cycling fitness. It is certain that if you follow the training cycles as outlined including base, build, recovery, peak, and race phases you WILL improve your cycling and be faster and have more endurance than you ever had.
