Here are some tips which underscore the importance of working on those pounds during our off-season so that we're ready to hit the road when cycling begins in earnest! www.roadbikerider.com/top
A Weighty Matter
"When I started road riding in earnest over a decade ago, I carried 194 pounds (88 kg) on my 5’10” (178-cm) frame. There’s no getting around it: I was fat!
Since that time, I’ve lost 30 pounds (13.6 kg). Every single one has helped make me a healthier person and has contributed to my cycling improvement. But the last 10 were by far the hardest – and by far have enabled the most significant benefits to my riding.
Of all the annual goals roadies set this time of year, a typical one is to lose weight. Doing so brings myriad benefits: By definition, it improves your power-to-weight ratio, makes it easier to climb, lowers the stress on your joints and can add to your overall sense of well-being, among numerous other cycling and health-related benefits (my cholesterol dropped 30 points in the process of my weight loss). If you’re looking for a way to drop those last 10 pounds, here are some helpful tips from my own experience."
