This book is a comprehensive guide to training for different types of long distance biking. It covers the basics such as bike styles gear and diet. It includes a detailed training schedule that is explained with simple easy to understand concepts. Ive been following the training plan for 4-5 day ride. I am very pleased with this book.

I bought this book in preparation for a long race mid-summer. The early setup chapters introducing the idea of a training plan, bike fit, nutrition, etc, all looked pretty good. The actual training plan looks promising too.

Unfortunately, the actual plan matrices themselves (ie, which workout on which day of which week) -- seem to be expressly designed to annoy. Each day's workout expressed in a short 2 or 3 letter "code". The codes are not at all mnemonic, and they must each be looked up at the back end of the book. And... once you find the right section to look them up in, things aren't alphabetical.

In short, the training-matrices are so poorly laid out that you should plan on spending at least an hour re-writing the one you're interested in, while cross-referencing between the plan pages & the appendices. Frustrating.

The plans included in this book are very well done. I'd recommend them to anyone looking for a starting point in planning out their yearly training.
