Hey cyclists! Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned pro, here are 10 truths about cycling training that you need to know.
Here’s a friendly reminder that consistency is key to any fitness goal. It’s easy to get excited about a new workout plan or training program, but it’s important to stick with it over time to see results.
If you can’t ride every day, that’s okay. Just try to get out there as often as you can. Even a short ride is better than no ride at all.
The fundamentals of cycling training are the foundation of your fitness. If you’re not strong in these areas, you’ll be limited in your ability to improve.
So focus on building your aerobic endurance and power at lactate threshold. These are the two most important factors in cycling performance.
It’s easy to get caught up in the details of cycling training. But it’s important to remember that the little things matter.
Things like getting enough sleep, eating a healthy diet, and staying hydrated will all help you improve your performance. So don’t sweat the small stuff. Just focus on doing the things that will make the biggest difference.
Cycling is a great way to get exercise, but it’s important to listen to your body. If you’re feeling pain, it’s best to take a break.
Pushing yourself too hard can lead to injury, which will set you back in your training. So be smart and listen to your body.
Cycling is a great way to get exercise, but it’s also a great way to have fun. So don’t forget to enjoy the ride!
On top of that, you can do the following tips too to improve and make your cycling training more efficient.
There are a lot of different training plans out there, so it can be hard to know where to start. But don’t worry, there’s a plan out there for everyone.

Tracking your progress is a great way to stay motivated and see how you’re improving over time.
There are a lot of different ways to track your progress. You can use a training log, a fitness tracker, or even just a simple spreadsheet.
