    It's an excellent beginning program. Just start the cycle with a very conservative weight and focus on perfect form. It will seem very easy at first, but by the end of the first week you may...

    Those are not the best calculators for a number of reasons, and they are all too basic to give anything accurate for actual rides. Height is not a large factor, and I think it's a roundabout effort...

    That sounds way high for 16-17 mph rides. I'd be curious about what calculator, and the numbers that were input to get those results.

    I've always ridden on my toes with the spindle forward of the ball of my foot. Using steel toe clips exclusively, this works for me by cramming my size 12 foot into a size small clip (sometimes...

    I like beer too, but all alcohol is bad for performance. It's not really about the calories but more about how it affects your metabolism, energy production and hormones. Seems pointless to...

    It goes farther than that. With leg presses your hips are pushing against a seat, so not only does it take the core muscles out of the movement, it puts your low back in very weak and vulnerable...

    To "maintain a faster average speed" you first have to be able to go fast. If you can't go fast there is nothing to maintain. For a 10 mile ride there is no chance of over training as long as you...

    I don't know why this surprises anyone. He's a serial sandbagger and probably would not have lined up at the start unless he intended to win.

    Contador "will not contest the GC"? He may say that, or even believe that, but that's just not in his nature. Uran is one of my favorites to win, but I'll be rooting for Horner.

    I think Armstrong would have met his match with Hinault. Hinault won all three grand tours and all the classics, Armstrong was a tdf specialist. No comparison whatsoever.
