Battling the elements: Extreme cold

Dan Lloyd rides in cold weather

It's been a tough winter for cyclists all over the country. Turbo trainers have been revved up to meltdown, and alternative forms of exercise pursued to maintain fitness, but that's no bad thing at the back end of each year. Now though, if you want some summer cycling fitness, it's time to try and get outside and ride.

Not every day. You should continue doing quality, short duration training sessions on the turbo. And continuing a weight training programme, circuit training and/or running isn't going to do you any harm, even if you have to continue right into the spring. Ideally, though, there should be at least one day a week when you get out on the roads.
