Disappointment. Very basic info. This book is more for the starting cyclist than for the long distance rider looking for tips.

Distance Cycling is a fabulous Resource 15 novembre 2012
Par Steve Brown - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I am writing this review as one who is relatively new to long distance riding. I began seriously in April of 2012, riding the first of the Boston Brevet Series, a 100K ride. While I quickly became hooked, I had no experience with this new way of riding. Over the next few months I worked through the series, successfully completing the 200, 300, 400 and 600K rides. It was an exciting time with much learning and many, many questions.

As a 64 year old rider I knew I needed to learn how to ride more efficiently and to deal well with nutrition and training. As I worked my way through the Brevet Series I began looking online for answers. Coach John Hughes' name kept coming up. I'd print his articles, study them and apply the learnings on the next ride. Upon hearing of Distance Cycling I knew from studying John's past articles that the answers to many of my questions would be found in this one book. I have not been disappointed.

It is comprehensive, covering all of the relevant topics of distancing riding. It is written in a logical and understandable way and is based on John's many years of experience. As one who owns' a business I especially appreciate the emphasis on planning and training schedules as a way to get organized. One thing I love about the recommended exercises in this book is that they can be done at home with relatively little equipment.
This winter I will be focusing on his chapter on Baseline Conditioning as a way to increase core strength and remain limber for the next riding season. In personal communications with John I have learned that he is exceptionally generous. Distance Cycling embodies this generosity.

If you are a long distance rider or considering becoming one this book will help you at every turn-I heartily recommend it!

Distance Cycling 21 septembre 2011
Par George Stransky - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I have done Paris-Brest-Paris, finished the Kona Ironman 8 times, and done Team RAAM in 2000. As a cyclist, triathlete, and amateur coach for sundry friends from time to time, READ THIS BOOK for accurate information, effective training tips, sound advise, and a comprehensive, intelligent approach to distance cycling. Author John Hughes has completed RAAM and numerous multi-day events on the bike himself and he is an accomplished writer. These traits combine into a uniquely understandable approach to distance cycling. If you have time to read only one book, read this one!

Comprehensive but not Inspired 6 septembre 2012
Par Jay Livingston - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
Here is a compilation of information about endurance cycling - plenty of details and a few new facts for those that have explored other resources on long-distance riding.

I ride about 1200 to 1500 per year and have begun to ride centuries and metric centuries. I regularly read articles on any number of websites. Little here was new, but it was a fairly complete collection of the information I've read other places.

Expect to see many pages of specific, week- by-week training schedules. If you're not the type of person who wants to follow a tight regime, you should probably consider this book to be many pages shorter than advertised.

I finish this type of book looking for a clear overview that points me toward improving my approach. I work toward new goals in an evolutionary way - small changes over a long approach. For instance, I have been increasing mileage for four years. At 64 years old I felt I needed to build the toughness of my tendons, etc. This book's approach might get me to the same place, but I didn't see where it explicitly talks about these fundamental intentions. I do better when I know, or have at least a quick review of, what I am after. A century may be the goal, but a body that can survive and enjoy it is the real intent of my training.

If page after page of specific instructions feels comforting to you, this book is well worth a read. If you haven't ridden more than 20 miles or so, this book will offer a solid template to guide you. If you already have a century under your tires, this book will give you resources to stretch your event mileage. But if you already ride centuries occasionally and have read articles on being more effective in your training structure, this book will offer minimal additional information.

Distance Cycling is a Great Resource 1 septembre 2011
Par Dan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I have been hooked on ultra cycling for over a decade and have completed scores of rides, from centuries to 1200k's. Hughes & Kehlenbach's Distance Cycling is ideal for anyone who just loves to ride, whether it's around the block or around the country. This book has great information on conditioning and nutrition, and it's full of detailed week-by-week cycling training programs for various distance goals. Best of all, it's written in an enjoyable, easy-to-read style. Without a doubt, it's the best book I've read on long-distance cycling.

Still not sure whether to buy this book? 13 novembre 2012

Just buy it! I cannot imaging anyone who is looking for a single source of information on long distance cycling, preparation, and training being disappointed with this book. I continually discover new bits of information as I return to it for answers to new questions or to re-read sections.

If you are looking to improve your cycling and increase your distance, Distance Cycling is an outstanding resource. I highly recommend this book.
