Overview

Every cyclist wants to get faster. Whether they're a weekend warrior, a crit specialist, or a charity cruiser, speed is the X factor that lets a rider ride strong, feel fresh, and thoroughly enjoy each ride.

Get Fast! is the cyclist's go-to guide for gaining speed. In it, author Selene Yeager addresses speed from every possible angle, including not only the standard chapters on riding techniques and bike maintenance tricks specific to getting fast but also stand-alone chapters on fitness and weight loss, stretching, nutrition and supplementation, motivation, and mental attitude. Together they present a complete and comprehensive guide to achieving one's top speed.

Bolstered by a foundation in science and road-tested by Yeager and the editors of Bicycling magazine, the wisdom presented in Get Fast! will have riders and readers flying on the road, dirt, dirt roads, cross course, track—anywhere and everywhere they love to ride most—in no time at all.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“Full of helpful and easy-to-use information, this book is also an enjoyable read. Yeager blends personal anecdotes with tips from the pros. The book covers technique, from cadence to breathing, as well as the importance of diet and strength training -- and I love the sound advice to eat healthy fats found in avocados for long-lasting fuel and to do jump squats to help build explosive speeds. I find that the more I read about biking, the more I wanted to ride. So this books offers double the inspiration.” —Fit Sugar
