It’s Easy To Get Faster

I love Bicycling Magazine online. I read their website so much more than the printed magazine (and I subscribe to it). It’s a much bigger data base of resources for training. I admit that I don’t do everything that I should in my training, but some of the Bicycling online articles for training, have definitely improved my racing.

So I wanted to share some of the great information that you can find on Bicycling.com. It’s much easier to get fast than you might think, and do what works for you.
