The problem we have here as coaches is trying to get you cyclists to take rest and nutrition as seriously as you take the training part.
We have often been heard to say at workshops and training days ‘its not the hour a day that the cyclist spends training that we worry about, it’s the other 22-23 hours that will make the difference’.
Over the years this has become the key to success for many we help and advise. Yes we can tell you how often, fast and long to train but it really counts for nothing if you are always tired and ill. You won’t become the cyclist you could be if you don’t attempt to get this part right.
So the following tips will help you to avoid getting a winter cold, but more importantly, they will definitely help you to be a better cyclist all of the time.
