What did you love best about Cycling: Bicycling Made Easy?
I wanted to get back into cycling since we live in the country with bike trails and roads to explore. It has been many years and I wanted a basic resource for information about cycling, so I could read up on the sport. I listened to the samples of several books and this one seemed to fit all my criteria: good information, credible sources, a good narrator who would be easy to listen to and an author who knows his stuff! Let me tell you, the author definitely knows his stuff. This book was excellent, it took me from the basics of cycling into more advanced knowledge. This book has become my go to source. I have also purchased a hard copy version so I have it with me, earmarked and highlighted for my own knowledge.
What other book might you compare Cycling: Bicycling Made Easy to and why?
I was not comparing it to other books
Have you listened to any of Joshua Mackey’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Yes, it was just as good.
What insight do you think you’ll apply from Cycling: Bicycling Made Easy?

Cycling also known as biking is a great and fun activity and a practical mode of transport. Cycling is a great sport as it provides a powerful form of cardiovascular exercise and it strengthens core muscles as well as your legs. Bicycles are a convenient way of transport as they are easy to park and maneuver than cars. After gaining weight I decide to start cycling as I had a bicycle just lying around and hence decided to buy a book that will guide me. This book has been fantastic as it has helped me become prepared with the right equipments. One needs to have a helmet, proper footwear, the saddle, reflective clothes, weather gears, hydration pack and the bike. I have also gained knowledge on stretching, warm- up, and cool down techniques. This book also enlightened me on how to be a better cyclist. I have already recommended the book to my friends who are cyclist and I therefore highly recommend it! Thanks Ace

“Cycling” by Ace McCloud is a complete motivation and training guide for cyclist. First part of the book shows how to prepare your bicycle for long lasting and safe using. McCloud shows how to choose proper helmet, footwear and reflective and waterproof clothing. But most important is customise your bicycle for your high and how to setting your saddle properly. Cushioning seat is very comfy and useful for those who prefer long ride.
“Cycling” contains professional advice for everybody. Ideal tip for start is to warm-up technique like light aerobic, then dynamic stretch, crunches and also cool-down techniques. McCloud offers a lot of valuable exercises that helps you protect your body against injuries and relax your muscles. Also very challenging is to know how to fix a flat. I always have a problem with that and now know how to do it step by step. I have no idea that can use sandpaper to scratch over the hole!
“Cycling” will improve your skills and shows you how to increase your distance step-by-step. Good idea is to join to a cycling group that can be a great fun and extra motivation. You can learn from experience cyclists and share your tips and opinion. Very valuable is also to learn bicycle laws. You can learn what can be dangerous when riding like car door opening, person or animals suddenly appear in your way, how to behave when cars turning in front of you. Very useful and practical guide that helps you to be a great cyclist and have extremely fun!

I am not a strong cyclist by any means and so I really wanted to learn some ways of improving my technique and building up strength. I found this guide very interesting and really enjoyed learning about all the different exercises that can be done to focus on specific areas that will enhance my cycling ability.
