"Bicycling for Women" is a new book out from VeloPress written by Gale Bernhardt. The title covers a broad range of topics that will be of interest to female riders, whether they're neophytes,
road-proven veterans, or somewhere in between.
"There are a lot of pieces to women's cycling in addition to getting the right bike fit," writes reviewer Stephanie Chase in the Daily Peloton. "Bernhardt's interactive book covers a wide scope: women's bodies, their bikes, and their biology. Knowledge is power and Bernhardt packs enough information on bike fit, training programs, heart rate zones, and nutrition to propel a casual cyclist to the next level."
