By Roy M. Wallack and Bill Katovsky
Ok. Here is the deal…This is not a Freeriding book. So if you only want to read a book about hucking off of anything you see, then this is not a book for you. However if you are open to different types of riding and want to be doing this sport for the rest of your life then this is for you. I have done a lot of crazy races in my time from 24 hours races to Sea to Summits, but the guys that wrote this book are freaking animals who have done most of the races that we as amateur cyclists dream of. Both Roy and Bill are true athletes who have used a lifetime of experience to create this book. The main point is that cycling is a sport that can be done whether you are 20 or 70 and the benefits from riding are worth looking into.Basically this book maps out how to become an endurance rider through training and interviews with industry leaders, like Gary Fisher. They have taken their years of experience and created a book that gives you the inside track to doing it right the first time from diet to rest and keeps you from making the mistakes that most of us learned the hard way. It is explained in a very simple yet complete manner that should be able to answer any of the questions a beginner cyclist may have.
If you have read this far, even with out the mention of hucking or beer bongs, you are probably interested and might want to pick this book up. There is a beginner nature to the book but there is still a solid amount of information that is invaluable that might surprise. All in all a good read.
