Phase IV Lecture Series Presents: Getting Started – Basic Bicycle Training
Cycling is a rewarding lifelong activity which allows us to improve our level of fitness, feel the wind in our face, enjoy the outdoors, explore new places, and develop new friendships. Most of all, cycling is an activity that can radically change your life with improved body composition, reduced health risk factors and increased vitality. If you don’t train right, however, those rewards will not be realized.
Learn the Science used by the pros and successful beginners alike to optimize their cycling performance and capabilities. It’s never too late to update your program and start on the proper path to success and sustained enjoyment of the sport!
