MEDIA REVIEWS

"Armed with training programs from John Hughes and Dan Kehlenbach, I became a UMCA champion, solo RAAM qualifier, cross-state record holder, and 1200K finisher. Distance Cycling will give you the advantages these authors gave me."

Larry Graham -- President, UltraMarathon Cycling Association (UMCA)

"I wish Distance Cycling had been available 35 years ago when I struggled to find intelligent information about how to ride farther and faster. This book is a must for any rider who wants to improve overall long-distance cycling performance."

Lon Haldeman -- Eight-Time Transcontinental Record Setter and Race Across America Winner

"Distance Cycling is the coach you've always wanted and needed. John Hughes and Daniel Kehlenbach have taken the best and most current information about training, diet, safety, technique, and mental preparation and applied it to all cyclists yearning to go farther and faster."

Muffy Ritz -- Three-Time RAAM Runner-Up, Former Member of U.S. Ski Team

"With Distance Cycling, Hughes and Kehlenbach have created an important, accessible tool of self-knowledge and empowerment for the motivated endurance cyclist."

Chris Fisher, ForeWord magazine

"My good friend, and ultracycling guru, John Hughes, has produced the ultimate book on what a cyclist needs to know when considering a ride of more than 100 miles."

Ken Bonner-- Veteran ultracyclist and member of Randonneurs USA, UltraMarathon Cycling Association, and BC Randonneurs Cycling Club

"Distance Cycling has great information on conditioning and nutrition, and it's full of detailed week-by-week cycling training programs for various distance goals. Best of all, it's written in an enjoyable, easy-to-read style. Without a doubt, it's the best book I've read on long-distance cycling."

Dan Wallace--Veteran ultracyclist and member of the UltraMarathon Cycling Association and Randonneurs USA
