Developed by the expert team behind Cycling Plus magazine, the bookazine is called Cycling Plus: Ride Fit, and provides riders with everything they need to get back on the roads after the Christmas break.
With the Olympics just around the corner, this year is set to be dominated by sports and it’s not just the professionals getting involved. In the UK, 22,000 journeys are made by bike each day, proving that more people than ever are getting on their bikes to keep fit, save money and have fun.
Featuring a collection of the best health, fitness and training tips from Cycling Plus, the 188 page guide is designed to be a complete rider’s manual and a great reference tool. Readers will find articles on everything from training for your first sportive and the best gym workouts, to recipe ideas for riders and easy weight loss advice.
There’s even a section on how to use cycling to beat stress, encouraging everyone to get out on the road to beat the January blues.
Rob Spedding, Editor of Cycling Plus: Ride Fit, says: “Cycling is set to be big news in 2012 so we wanted to devise a guide to help cyclists kick start their training.
“At Future we have such a wide breadth of expert content and this bookazine provides a go-to guide for cyclists everywhere. We’re continually encouraging cyclists be the best they can be and this new bookazine will certainly help riders on their way, providing yet another exciting way for consumers to engage with the Cycling Plus brand.”
On sale from today, Cycling Plus: Ride Fit is priced at £7.99 and can be found in most WHSmith stores.
