It's a true honour to welcome back cyclist extraordinaire Sir Chris Hoy to Waterstones Leadenhall Market, signing copies of How to Ride a Bike.

An invaluable manual for cyclists of all ages, experience and ability, which will help them achieve peak performance. Full of practical advice, this book includes information on:

Strength conditioning to improve your performance
Targeted training plans to focus on strengthening weaker areas
Bike care and maintenance
Riding different terrains and environments
Road cycling skills and safety

The book will also help you explore your five key abilities of cycling fitness, defined as the maximum effort you can maintain for the following periods of time:

6 seconds (max sprinting)
30-60 seconds (sub-max sprinting)
3-5 minutes (VO2 max)
1 hour (zone of transition)
Several hours (long steady distance riding)

This book acts as a training toolbox with which you can structure bespoke sessions to improve these five facets of performance. There's also advice on diet, weight loss and the psychology of cycling, and plenty of stories and anecdotes from Sir Chris Hoy's Olympic track career.

Full of helpful and inspiring advice for those getting on a bike for the first time in a while, along with plenty of tips and tricks for seasoned cyclists looking to take it up a notch, this is a book for beginners and pros alike.
