The Long Distance Cyclists' Handbook, Paperback

The Long Distance Cyclists' Handbook Paperback


Packed with straightforward information, The Long Distance Cyclist's Handbook details the preparation and equipment needed to take a novice from the challenge of a 50-mile charity ride to gearing up and comfortably covering 66 km in a weekend randonnee.

It also tackles marathon events such as 12-hour time trials, and the ultimate test - the 3000-mile Race Across America.

Fully updated, this is essential reading for anyone contemplating a cycling holiday or any challenge that takes you outside your usual comfort zone.

It brings you the most up-to-date information on training, technique, nutrition, health and travel, and combines the latest in sports science research with years of experience cycling beyond the horizon.
