Lose Weight and Get Watts
November 17, 2015 | Around the Web
For cyclists the holiday season can offer quite the conundrum. First, we’re supposed to be resting and recovering, letting our muscles rest and recover from the past season of riding. Then we’re supposed to start heading on those “long slow distance” rides to get our endurance back. And then, and most importantly, we’re coming home to holiday treats and presented with the thought, “Did I really ride enough to eat this whole pie?”
While we pack on the miles this winter, it can be easy to accidentally pack on the pounds. So how do you lose weight, get watts and enjoy everything these colder months have to offer? Here are some of our favorite articles this week on losing weight while cycling:
