9780897326605: The No-Drop Zone: Everything You Need to Know about the Peloton, Your Gear, and Riding Strong

The No-Drop Zone contains all the information necessary for new cyclists to gain the knowledge and skills to take them from buying their first bicycle to starting their first race. Cyclists learn how to handle the bike, perform minor maintenance, select clothing and accessories, join clubs, and find events. The book also covers every aspect of riding in a group, emphasizing such specific skills as how to avoid bumping into other riders when riding in close quarters and fixing a flat quickly enough to rejoin the group. Author Patrick Brady explores the particular pleasures that come from group riding, a unique experience at once social (talking with friends while riding), exciting (descending in a group), and exhilarating (finishing a long hill). Brady also details the enormous fitness benefits of riding in a group. The No-Drop Zone has all the knowledge a cyclist needs to move to that next level of skill.

"I would have saved myself years of trial and error if this book had been around when I was getting started." -- Joe Parkin, author A Dog in a Hat

"...the first really comprehensive look at the sport ... should be in every cyclist's bookcase." -- Robin Thurston, CEO Map My Ride and former professional cyclist

"Brady brings experience and clarity to practically every aspect of the sport of cycling. The No-Drop Zone is like having your own personal cycling mentor." -- Elden "Fatty" Nelson, FatCyclist.com

"The No-Drop Zone is a comprehensive, entertaining and well-organized book for beginning cyclists who want to quickly improve their bike knowledge and understanding of the sport." -- Brad Roe, Editorial Director peloton magazine

"The No-Drop Zone can help you take your road biking up a notch as you fine-tune your skills as a cyclist, learn to ride in a pace-line or pack, and just as importantly, train smarter. Brady offers good advice on making smart choices when buying your road bike as well as making upgrades on your existing bike to make improvements in performance, comfort and weight." --Cycle & Style, June 2011
