Power is the Holy Grail of cycling. The more bike power you have, the faster you can ride over a given distance

Like that they mention 3/4 of your training should be zone 1 or 2. I know so many riders who just go out and hammer it every ride and don't get why they aren't getting faster. It works at first for them but then they hit a wall and stop improving.

I like number 3 - Ride into headwinds. It says that you can't always find rides with headwinds. Obviously, they've never ridden in Florida, especially in Flatwoods.
