Drew's Daily Cycling Tip

Basic Training Rule – Coaches will tell you that in order to maintain fitness you need to get in a ride at least three days a week. And, if you want to improve, it needs to be four or five rides a week, depending on your goals. A good way to fit in these workouts is to ride short on weekdays, perhaps during your lunch break, by commuting to work and home or by hitting the health-club stationary cycle. Then on the weekends, you can fit in your longer rides.
