    Let me sum up this book for you The author hates everything about cycling except going downhill, and spends the entire book complaining about it Nearly every page includes some parenthetical comment about how she d rather be eating watching TV being sedentary than doing any sort of exertion It s the same joke over and over The phrase butt soreness appearsthan any other word s aside perhaps from our friend the Motivated yet The advice is about as superficial as reading the titles Let me sum up this book for you The author hates everything about cycling except going downhill, and spends the entire book complaining about it Nearly every page includes some parenthetical comment about how she d rather be eating watching TV being sedentary than doing any sort of exertion It s the same joke over and over The phrase butt soreness appearsthan any other word s aside perhaps from our friend the Motivated yet The advice is about as superficial as reading the titles of a Google search result, and the only chuckles come from the journal entries that detail her misadventures and are great examples of what NOT to do when you ride a race The fact that she doesn t actually complete either of the centuries she starts she ends up riding a 100 mile route of her own creation should be reason enough to dismiss this as a guide In fact, in chronicling her personal experiences, Ms Dais doesn t even follow her own advice, and without the slightest hint of irony.If you must, read only the journal entry pages and enjoy the schadenfruede, but please don t pick this up expecting any sort of substantive guidance Unless, that is, you need someone to tell you how to put together a workout playlist on your ipod but you really shouldn t one using while cycling anyway

    If you were a first time cyclist or just getting into the sport hobby I think this book would be a fun and helpful read Since I ve been reading many books on the subject as well as riding forthan a year it wasn t as helpful as some other books that I should be reading like the cycling book by Friel But the author has a very down to earth, sarcastic sense of humor that makes her approachable to those who would rather be lounging on the couch Some of the passages are a bit repetitious If you were a first time cyclist or just getting into the sport hobby I think this book would be a fun and helpful read Since I ve been reading many books on the subject as well as riding forthan a year it wasn t as helpful as some other books that I should be reading like the cycling book by Friel But the author has a very down to earth, sarcastic sense of humor that makes her approachable to those who would rather be lounging on the couch Some of the passages are a bit repetitious that make me wonder if this book had as tight editing as it could have had It would still make an informative read that goes by very quickly

    Her book about marathon training was funny, but the wit felt overdone this time Like a comedian who stays on stage too long I don t know, maybe I ve matured as an athlete and just ready forserious information.

    Pretty good introduction to cycling and how to prepare for a century ride Lots of humor, but not a lot of information that was new to me Good for novice cyclists and those thinking of buying a bike.

    Funny book about a non cyclist training for a century and all the info for newbies.

    Funny, but a bit repetitive Some good info for new riders, and enough laughs to help you remember The second half of the book could ve been drastically edited down, though.

    No where NEAR as funny as her marathon book
