Pedal, Pedal, Pedal!

In spirit of the Tour de France kicking off this weekend, and Ted’s continued training for Vineman 70.3, it’s time for a bit of focus on cycling.

If you’re in need of a list of cycling fundamentals, (courtesy of Bicycling Magazine) has posted a couple of things to help you train better. Tips range from how to ride hard and include intervals to eating and making sure you still have a fun time.

For a more organized approach to training for a bike ride late this summer — and into early fall — Bicycling Magazine has posted a solid basic training guide.

If you’re riding a mountain bike this summer, Alameda Runners hasn’t forgotten about including a couple of links for you. Pro mountain bikers offer a couple of tips how to ride faster (courtesy of Mountain Bike) which should help give you some things to think about when riding this summer.

Outside Online quickly became one of my favorite online sports resources, with “The Top 11 Cycling Technique Tips” blog (available here) for you to read over.

Remember, chances are you’re not a professional athlete, so adjust your training and dietary needs depending on your skill level and physical activity.
