Women are built differently, ride differently, train differently, burn different macronutrients as fuel, and have a different relationship with their bikes than men do. It's only natural they should need their own comprehensive cycling book. The Bicycling Big Book of Women's Cycling by Selene Yeager is a Bicycling-branded instructional manual geared specifically toward women. It breaks down the sport of cycling down into easily digestible sections, beginning with the history of women's cycling and progressing into equipment, lifestyle, technique, training, and fitness goals. The book also includes a women-specific section that covers cycling while menstruating, cycling while pregnant, how menopause affects your training, and how specific parts of the female body are uniquely affected by cycling. The Bicycling Big Book of Women's Cycling will serve as an indispensible, life-long guide for every female cyclist.
A comprehensive guide to cycling uniquely focused on the specific needs of women riders.
