If all of that feels too restrictive, and you’ve got an appetite for more, then doubling up is an option – with two bike rides a day, or a bike session and time in the gym come the evening. Double days are fantastic, because you get two releases of endorphins and testosterone. It means you can get two hits in one day.
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.
Over the years you can build up a pretty decent array of quality kit, enough to pass the preliminary peer exams at least, but that leaves you praying that nothing breaks and holds you back on the road to cycling’s upper classes. Even then, winter is always coming and leaves you with the age old dilemma – do you buy a winter bike, ride your best through the bleakest months, or just pack it up and accept your fate until spring?
I was speaking to [former pro] Greg Henderson about it, he was saying in the last few days of the Tour de France his max heart rate would be 15 beats less than it was at the start. Because he was just that fatigued. Obviously in the Tour de France, you cant take a rest, but amateurs can.
