John Schubert's "Cycling for Fitness"
"European racers have rice cakes, dried fruits and fruit tarts"
"Don't eat within one hour of starting time, or you'll depress your blood sugar level with an insulin reaction...dilute those heavily sugared drinks by at least one"
"a pound of fat on your ribs slows you down"
"Long rides develop the body's ability to burn fat rather than glucose"
"If cycling has a drawback as exercise, it's the lack of stretching. Because muscles naturally tighten up when you exercise them, and because you don't need much range of motion to ride a bike"
