How to Make Progress?

In our most recent post on the blog we examine how to continue to make progress on the bike.  Everyone gets better when they start riding more seriously, but what happens after you’ve been at if for a while?  Here are a few of the core principles we discuss

  1. Cycling Potential, does it come from genes or deliberate practice?
  2. Progressive Overload, the foundational principle to progress
