Publisher Comments:

Cycling is one of the most popular and fastest growing activities in the nation—today more than 56 million recreational cyclists bike regularly in the United States. Now leading cycling journalists Roy M. Wallack and Bill Katovsky have assembled into one essential resource everything cyclists needs to know to bike for a lifetime. These experts present groundbreaking information on medical research, training techniques, nutrition, and technology and equipment trends that impact the sport at every level. They also assess the risks and provide informative solutions to many bike-related conditions that have been overlooked, sensationalized, or are just emerging, including impotence, osteoporosis, weakened immune systems, sore backs, depression, and even fractured relationships. Also featured are a dozen in-depth interviews with cycling legends, such as Gary Fisher, Ned Overend, John Howard, Missy Giove, Eddie B, and Marla Steb. This authoritative guide to getting the most out of your bike riding will appeal to cycling enthusiasts of all ages and abilities, and is a must-read for everyone who loves to get on a bike to compete, to keep fit and promote longevity, for fun, or simply to get from point A to point B.

John B NYC, September 13, 2012 (view all comments by John B NYC)
Great content but where are the illustrations?, September 13, 2012

As a 70 year old who who bikes in the city for both recreation and transportation, 'Bike for Life' has terrific content - addressing many issues I need to learn about if I am to bike for more decades. But there are many areas where some illustrations would be helpful - from yoga poses to bike fitting, technique, equipment distinctions, human biology, etc.

This is the kind of book where one doesn't always read chapters sequentially but skips around. The lack of illustrations makes it hard to envision something when one has to reread sections to be able to envision what is being written.
