    Hello everyone,,
    I am at boarding school at the moment and dont have the chance to train on my bike.
    Does anyone have any tips for training for road races without a real bike? At my school we have stationary gym bikes and lots off weight training machines.
    Many thanks.

    I want to keep my racing road bike safe and use it for only racing. A friend has a bike thats pre-2001 equipped with 8 speed 105 Sti's that he's willing to basically give to me. Would it be wise to train on an older road bike and race with my other bike or just stick with my racing bike for everything?

    Due to the increased consumption of junk food, weight gain in many people has been affected causing an exponential deterioration in their health. Also, the increase and lack of control in the use of technology are causing many children to adopt a sedentary life. Statistics show that 40% of the American population is unaware or unknown of the side effects that obesity causes.

    Generally you have to work a lot harder on the older bikes with fewer gears. This keeps your shape up but often harms your speed. On of the things to do it do most of your riding on the older bike and for a week before the race do all of your training on the race bike and push for top end speed.
