"Cycling Science taps the leading minds in cycling training, fitness, and technology. A landmark work, it's beyond comprehensive and a must-have for anyone who wants to truly understand our amazing sport."

--Selene Yeager, USA Cycling certified coach, Bicycling magazine columnist

--Hunter Allen, CEO and founder of Peaks Coaching Group, Coauthor of Cutting Edge Cycling and Training and Racing With a Power Meter

"Cycling Science is an informatively authoritative resource composed of contributions from 43 top cycling scientists and coaches from around the world that will hold immense appeal for both amateur and professional cyclists. A perfect blend of science and application, Cycling Science takes the sport into the training room and research lab, and then out onto the course. The 40 major articles comprising Cycling Science feature the latest thinking on the rider-machine interface; information about environmental stressors; a look at health issues; help in planning training programs; the latest coaching and racing techniques; and strategies for road, track, MTB, BMX, and ultradistance events. While unreservedly recommended for both community and academic library Contemporary Sports collections, it should be noted for personal reading lists that Cycling Science is also available in a digital book format."

--Library Bookwatch, August 2017 Midwest Book Review

"The [Cycling Science] editors are both world-leading cycling scientists, Cheung in Canada and Zabala in Spain, and for their 40(!) chapters, they've recruited an extremely distinguished list of scientists from around the world. It covers all aspects of human physiology, bike design, training, racing, health, and so on. If you're a cyclist interested in the science of your sport, I'd rate this pretty much a must-buy as a reference tome."
