Subject: Cycling 101?
I'm currently on the shelf all season as I recover from a pretty significant injury that will prevent me from swimming, weights, crossfit, and running for some time. When I start rehabbing my injury, I'll be limited to just a computrainer for a month or two, and then perhaps some outdoor riding. I figure now is the time to "learn" how to ride. I've always been able to ride a bike, but I know nothing about proper technique, racing strategies, trainimg methods, power meters, etc.... I've just rode. This year was supposed to be my first year of doing full IM races, but my injury set that back a year. I figure now is the time to research, educate myself, and figure out a training/racing strategy for triathlon cycling. I'm browsing through articles and forum posts and it seems so so in-depth that I don't know where to start. Does anyone have a good recommendation for an article/site/source to use as a starting point? Any good training plans or programs to check out?

How do you determine VO2 max for cycling? I have my HR zones from a time trial, but don't know how to get VO2 max out of that.

Known for its brutal cadences, nasty sprints and 12-minute hills, the spin class seems to be the perfect substitute for a raunchy ride outside. But is it?

Learn to perform routine maintenance on your bike. Knowing basic maintenance will make you a better rider. You’ll also come to recognize the complexity and beauty of this machine.

“Less is more,” is a common buzz phrase in endurance sports today. It refers to the trend of training less but focusing on intensity and quality rather than on quantity.

You ride hard enough that you are working but not so hard that you can’t do the same thing the next day. 700 km or 400 miles a week.
