There is more to becoming a stronger & fitter cyclist than just riding your bike. If you are looking to improve your endurance, speed and overall performance on the bike then you need to ‘train’.
Cycling training is different from just jumping on your bike and going for a ride with your mates. Sure, the more time you spend on your bike you’ll see an improvement. But by doing specific training it will help you to achieve so much more!
Greg Henderson was a professional cyclist for over 20 years and is now a coach at USA Cycling. If you really want to improve then we’d highly recommend checking out his online training programs which are available on his website www.coachhendy.com
