Either way... It was a well received gift.
The things I like about the book -
1. How important is the fitting of the bike.
2. How important it is to warm up before getting on to the bike, and equally how important it is to strech after a long ride.
3. What it takes to bike for long distance. The authors have given inspiring facts and tips to take long distance bike rides for leisure and races.
4. How to be a good climber. This is one aspect in which I needed help.
5. How to prevent injuries
However, there are certain things the book was missing -
1. This is not a book for some one who rides a bike just for leisure. Only if you are serious biker you should read this.
I wish the book covered all the aspects for people who have just got into biking.
2. There are no diagramatic explanation for any of the exercises which are mentioned in this book. Some of the exercises look are hard to understand without this.
Over all I was very satisfied with the book. I completed the book within 3 weeks and still read it for getting solid inspiration and correct technique. Good Job!!!!
