Joe Friel, one of the most trusted coach in endurance sports, has ‘completely rewritten the world’s most recognized training guide for cyclists’, The Cyclist’s Training Bible. Starting from a blank page, Coach Friel rewrote his cycling training approach to reflect recent and rapid changes in endurance sports science and practice. This includes new ways to personalize training, speed recovery, boost strength, improve skills and technique, use power meters for cycling, save time, and ‘cut out the noise of a flood of training data’.

The all-new fifth edition of The Cyclist’s Training Bible focuses on the best ways to train for all bike racing formats and cycling events including gran fondos and century rides, gravel grinders, stage racing, criterium racing, time trials, mountain biking, and multiday touring. This complete rewrite replaces the prior edition, which was released in 2009. The new Cyclist’s Training Bible, 5th Ed. is now available in bookstores, bike shops, and online.

The Cyclist’s Training Bible is billed as the best-selling and most comprehensive guide for aspiring and experienced cyclists.

The Cyclist’s Training Bible equips cyclists of all abilities with every detail they must consider when planning a season, lining up a week of workouts, or preparing for race day. With this all-new edition, Joe will guide cyclists in developing their own personalized cycling training program and:

· train with the right intensity and volume,
· gain maximum fitness from every workout,
· change their training plan over the course of a season,
· make up for missed workouts and avoid overtraining,
· build muscular endurance with a new approach to strength training,
· improve body composition with smarter nutrition.

Also releasing this month is Joe Friel’s new Cyclist’s Training Diary, 2nd Edition. This new edition of the Diary is a perfect companion to The Cyclist’s Training Bible or any cycling training program, offering an ideal way for riders to plan, record, and better understand their workouts and performance. This paper workout log is simple to use, never requires a login or password, and can be customized to meet the needs of any cycling training schedule.
