Road Bike Skills Refresher Article Published

Panama City, FL, December 19, 2012 --( During the fall and winter seasons, many cyclists taper their road bike training to a maintenance level. These lower-intensity off-season rides provide a great opportunity to incorporate drills to improve road bike handling skills.

Engineer, cycling coach and author Alan Canfield has published a new article entitled Off-Season Road Bike Skills Refresher, which presents techniques and drills that can be incorporated during training rides and focused practice to develop and refine road bike handling skills. Following is a short overview of the organization of topics:

· Riding drills discussed include Relaxation, Ride the White Line, One-Leg, and other drills to reinforce smooth pedaling and steady bicycle control.
· Focused practice drills described include the Water Bottle Pickup, Bumping, Hopping, and other drills designed to improve bike handling.
· Included are eleven figures demonstrating many of the drills and techniques, and two summary tables for quick reference of the drills and techniques presented.

Using the off-season to focus on bike handling drills, cyclists can start up the next training or racing season more prepared, and with a higher level of skill, confidence, and safety.

Off-Season Road Bike Skills Refresher is available in print and Kindle editions through (ISBN 978-1481252461) and as a downloadable PDF from The eBook edition will be available on iTunes, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, Diesel, and other bookstores in upcoming weeks.
