AA Classic cycling race routes
|Staat van het boek:||Licht beschadigd|
Classic race routes selected here are not for the faint-hearted. Based on the best cyclosportive events in Europe and on stages of the Grand Tours, they are much more than just pretty rides in the country. The 52 routes- one for every week of the year- are serious mental and physical challenges that require training and preparation. Yet each is accessible and achieved by many thousands of amateur cyclists every year. Classic Cycling Race Routes allows you to cycle these rides at any time, either as preparation for the race events, or for the sheer joy and exhilaration of the challenge. For those rides that don't have a dedicated cyclosportive route, the author has designed a ride to reflect the demands and history of the race. The book also features some of the Etape du Tour routes, which is the cyclosportive for the Tour de France. Each route contains a map with directions and an elevation profile, and Chris Sidwells provides an overview combining ride strategy and techniques with the history of the race. Practical and aspirational, Classic Cycling Race Routes will inspre a new generation of cyclists to push themselves to the extreme.
