Description

‘I am blown away by the level of detail Phil Cavell brings to his work.’
Elinor Barker MBE, multiple world champion and Olympic gold medallist

‘Phil is eminently qualified to write the Midlife Cyclist. Well, he is certainly old enough.’
Fabian Cancellara, Tour de France rider and two-time Olympic champion

‘An amazing accomplishment… a simple-to-understand precis of your midlife as a cyclist – you won’t want to put it down.’
Phil Liggett, TV cycling commentator

‘I’m determined to grow old gracefully in lycra, and Phil Cavell has been helping me to do it successfully for years.’
Gary Kemp

Renowned cycling biomechanics pioneer, Phil Cavell, explores the growing trend of middle-aged and older cyclists seeking to achieve high-level performance. Using contributions from leading coaches, ex-professionals and pro-team doctors, he produces the ultimate manifesto for mature riders who want to stay healthy, avoid injury – and maximise their achievement levels.

Time’s arrow traditionally plots an incremental path into declining strength and speed for all of us. But we are different to every other generation of cyclists in human history. An ever-growing number of us are determined to scale the highest peaks of elite physical fitness into middle-age and beyond. Can the emerging medical and scientific research help us achieve the holy triumvirate of speed and health with age?

The Midlife Cyclist offers a gold standard road-map for the mature cyclist who aims to train, perform and even race at the highest possible level.
