Where to Buy
John Howard is at it again...
by: on: 14-Sep 2010
I finally had the chance to read John Howard's latest book and thought it had helpful tips for both the novice and seasoned rider... I'm a long time cyclist and sometime racer on local SoCal teams and found the book to have some interesting insights; not only on the bike but a complete section on what to do off the bike for better performance and less injury. John outlines a complete program that includes both strength and flexibly exercised to complement training out on the road... John certainly has done it all and even today will be found in the front group of the legendary `Swami's ride" that's more like an abrading comet... Stacked with top riders and a sprinkling of pros, to see John in his 60's hang, he is doing something right...
This book was a disappointment to me

John Howard is legendary in the cycling world. He is a three time Olympian, winner of the Hawaii Ironman, holder of the world speed bicycle record, multiple national champion, etc., etc. When I heard that he had written a book on cycling which is a passion of mine, I couldn't wait to order it knowing that he would reveal the secrets that allowed him to accomplish everything that he has achieved. I must say that the book was a disappointment. Of all the books available on the subject of cycling on Amazon, this is probably the least informative with nothing new to add. I kept hoping the next page would reveal something that would make the purchase of the book worthwhile - I never found it. I give it three stars only out of the respect that I have for the man.
