Today's Tip

Make Like Aaar-nold In The Winter To Ride Better In The Spring - Cycling is mainly an aerobic and endurance sport but there are plenty of times when power comes into play. Steep hills, starting quickly from a dead stop, staying with a rapidly accelerating group of riders, sprint finishes, all require powerful legs. And, the stronger you are for your body weight, the better you'll be able to do these things. So what's the best way to build power? Weight training. If you follow a lifting program in the winter, you won't believe the power you have in the rest of the season. For exercises, step-ups, lunges, squats, leg extensions, hamstring curls, and toe raises are great for strength gains. But, make sure you receive proper instruction with any machines you use in the gym. And, if you're really serious about your cycling, it's a great idea to consult a professional trainer who can create a program that's right for you.

Cycling Glossary - Word of the Day

skewer

Short for quick-release skewer, the clamping device that allows you to remove and install wheels without tools. To be technically accurate, the quick release is the entire clamping device and a skewer is the rod-like part of the quick release that passes through the wheel's axle.
