    1. There isn t really too much out there about cycling that is written for a beginner or a newginner someone who once knew how to ride and worries she has forgotten everything after 25 years This one really is a complete guide I suspect it will be complete than many want as it is geared for all but has quite lengthy sections of bike training plans These are very helpful if you choose to race I d of actually like to have seen something attuned to a triathlon cyclist schedule just to see how that c [...]


    2. This is a pretty good basic guide to cycling It s written in lament terms and she has a sense of humor so it makes it easy to get through but I don t think it could should ever replace hands on learning and using your local bike gurus as resources.I found the first third of the book to be especially helpful basics about different bike styles, how to figure out what bike is right for you, the basic components, essential gear The middle third was mostly training plans that I skipped nearly complet [...]


    3. Every bicycling book has something useful, this one included Yeager covers some issues that even many beginner books skip, assuming everyone already knows how to ride a bike a section at the beginning on effective pedaling, dealing with hills, and obstacle avoidance and one at the end on proper ride nutrition are epecially helpful.However, I am not this book s target audience, as I realized the first time of many that Yeager referred to cycling as your sport Cycling is not my sport It is my tra [...]


    4. This is a book that I ordered for my library s collection and checked out so I could read it myself Those who know me are aware of my resurgence of interest in cycling Of course, a few months back I would have said I like riding my bike but since that makes folks ask if I ride a Harley, I ll stick to the lingo and the library catalog term and say I enjoy cycling This is all because I have a wonderful man in my life who fixed my old mountain bike which hadn t been ridden in at least five years an [...]


    5. In my new hobby as a cyclist, I m reading everything I can get my hands about riding because if it s worth doing it s worth reading about This book is a quick read and is definitely for the beginner I had already decided on which bike I wanted and ordered it, so those sections were interesting, but not particularly helpful for me There s a great section on training plans if you re planning on racing or riding for a purpose, along with alternate exercises to keep everything else fit while your le [...]


    6. If you haven t been on a bike since grade school or the most cycling you ve done since then has consisted of a week long devotion to become the next Lance Armstrong only to succumb to the routine of daily responsibilities the following week, then this book is for you Selene Yeager guides you on everything from deciding on what type of bicycle is best for your needs to clothing to equipment to nutrition Reading the book, it s like she is right there talking to you There are lots of good informati [...]


    7. When I started riding a bike this year for the first time since I was a kid, the first chapters of this book were exactly what I needed You know that old cliche that says you never forget how to ride a bike Well, that s a big, fat lie So the thorough, detailed explanations for everything from operating the brakes to dealing with bike shops, are extremely helpful Since I personally am interested only in recreational riding, I didn t get as much use from the chapters dealing with racing Still, if [...]


    8. My interest in cycling is purely recreational fitness not racing and there was plenty of good info in this book for riders like me She covers riding techniques, training plans for various goals, some basic physiology as it relates to nutrition, exercise and weight loss, things to look for in frames and components based on the type of riding you want to do, bike fit, and basic repairs and maintenance It s presented with humor and plenty of good reasons to just get out there an ride Probably best [...]


    9. Excellent resource for women cyclist with solid information Yes, there is a lot of basic information that is covered elsewhere, but Selene Yeager goes into depth in a lot of areas as well This is suitable for any beginner to somewhat experienced cyclist Right away I applied what I learned about my pedal stroke, and my cadence and overall speed ability has greatly improved I m anxious to try one of the detailed training plans I consider this to be a must read.


    10. Not really what I need in a cycling book Definitely oriented towards serious road riding racing, with the largest portion of the book dedicated to creating a training regimen However I did get some useful tips on turning better like Zoolander, I have a hard time turning left , climbing hills, and pedaling effectively I m getting some nice speed bursts now with not that much effort.


    11. Excellent book I m new to cycling and interested in doing long distance rides This book covers everything from buying a new bike, safety, repairs and maintenance, nutrition, training, developing a training schedule the book includes these already and much Well written and good for anyone from a novice to professional.


    12. Great if you have no idea about what getting into biking involves from an adult recreational and health perspective If you ve been riding for a year or there s very little new information to be had.


    13. I essentially read this book in one sitting from cover to cover I just bought a Specialized Ruby and then thought, hmm, is this the right bike for me It turns out it is, and now I know why Yay This is a great book geared towards the novice Was very pleased.


    14. Good book, easy to read and understand Doesn t get too technical but doesn t talk down to you either I learned some new tricks that will hopefully help me become stronger, faster, and meaner on the bike Leaner wouldn t be a bad thing either.


    15. My questions on what to look for in buying a bike and how to train and compete were answered in this fun reading guide It covers pretty much everything you d need to know This left me wanting to dive head first into the world of cycling.


    16. Covers very basic information to training for a century or time trial It is written by a woman and she deals with issues that we might have as women that is missing in books written by men Has very good training plans.


    17. great for fitness racing information accessible and practical tips for any other kind of cycling or every day biking the last straw was leave the most of the maintenance to the boys, when I had picked up this book for a better understanding of how my bike works.


    18. I wish I had come across this book when I first started riding would have saved me a lot of trial and error Still, a lot of good tips for training on and off the bike And I liked the section on the benefits of cycling such as relieving depression, PMS, and fatigue so true.


    19. I really enjoyed this book I m new to cycling unless you count riding a bike as a kid , and this book covered the basics and beyond I really enjoyed Ms Yeager s writing style it was accessible and enthusiastic and lacked any condescension or snobbery She loves cycling and it shows.




    20. Don t have much to compare to and still of a leisurely biker than a cyclist but good info and will keep and refer back to as I continue to improve


    21. Very basic info and for the complete novice, but this has a couple of good training plans for a Century or 40K TT.


    22. Great book for learning the ins and outs of cycling Very helpful to read before visiting a bike shop to learn the lingo Also includes great training plans for any event.


    23. This gave a great insight to a beginner rider, trying to learn to ride a bit seriously She has a great writing style and is clearly very knowledgeable She talks about all aspects of riding.


    24. I thought this was an excellent guide to help a novice start to cycle I love spin, but wanted to be outdoors and found this book extremely helpful.


    25. Great read Best advice for newbies like me Defense s writing is informal and informative I d recommend this book to any of my friends.




    26. Lots of good info on both road and mountain biking Training plans, riding tips a great book to start with.
