The hangover is also a blessing for my dad, as my booze-hindered leg and lung capacity allow him to drop me at every opportunity. Enjoy it while you can – your hangovers are at least 75 per cent more brutal at 25 than at 18, and it’s all downhill from here.
Cycling is for everyone – that’s the beauty of it. Anyone with access to two wheels can jump on a bike, breeze around the city or country and enjoy all the delights the velocipede can offer. That being the case, there are also some pretty key things you learn if you don the lycra a few moons earlier than the stereotypical road rider.
Similarly, if you’re a power based athlete or someone who enjoys time in the gym, Rowe says he’d treat a session pumping iron as similar to a high intensity bike session or a heavy chaingang – so the same amount of recovery applies. A gym day definitely doesn’t count as a day off.
Some people consider half an hour on the turbo or rollers recovery, I always say a rest day is a rest day – for your body and your mind. I’m not an advocate of active recovery. You’re either resting or training. As soon as you start getting your kit on, you’re in bike mode.
