A comprehensive guide to cycling, Cycle for Life includes bike and gear basics, body fitness, nutrition and health, and training programs for many levels and styles of cycling. More than just a sport, cycling is also a green mode of transport and a social recreational activity that is converting hundreds of new devotees every year. As cities and cycling clubs work together to build new bike lanes, paths, and routes, cycling is becoming safer and more fun. Author and professional cyclist Nicole Cooke is a cycling star whose recent gold-winning triumph in the Beijing Olympics earned her an even greater fan base. She is passionate about her sport, and that love of cycling is evident in Cycle for Life. The book is divided into four main sections: Bike Basics, which includes bike, gear, maintenance, and riding skills; Body Basics, which includes stretching, fitness, cross-training, and nutrition and health; Challenge Yourself, which includes commuting, touring, events, and racing; and Bike Knowledge, which includes information and resources for cyclists who want to take their commitment to the next level.

Cycle for Life is written to supply even the novice cyclist with information to bike with greater confidence. The book also has plenty of information for intermediate cyclists, whom Nicole calls GCGBPimprovers.GC[yen] With GCGBP52 Reasons to RideGC[yen] and its readable text, Cycle for Life is sure to inspire new fans and remind current cycling enthusiasts of the many reasons why they love their sport.
