Professional Triathlete and Gravel Cyclist Angela Naeth answers your questions in this episode of Ask Angela – Cycling Questions.
It’s the off-season and many of us are indoors on our trainers working on improving our performance on the bike. In triathlon, the cycling portion is the longest portion of the event and it makes sense to take the time during the off-season to work on your cycling performance. If you don’t have a coach, or even if you do, you may wonder if what you’re working on is right for you.
In this series, there are 4 questions from our readers that Angela answers for them but may also be something that you can utilize.
