Re: Smoking & CyclingThis is probably one of my fav threads! So interesting
It's interesting to read that on some posts people say that it only seems to affect their LSD's (long slow distances) and not short sharp climbs as they go anaerobic on climbs anyway. You will probably find that you will not hit your anaerobic threshold so quick if you didnt smoke.
Don't know where you're from closeup but if your form the UK try the NHS. 0800 167 1670 I used to work for them they will help... Good luck.
I mean it try while you can. easy to say yeah, hard to do also. I have never smoked so I don't know just how difficult it is to give up but I know it aint easy and studies have proven this! But I do know it's important to give up for you own health and riding.
GOOD LUCK AND GO FOR IT
