5 Tips to Increase Speed and Stamina on the Bike

Cycling has become increasingly difficult to understand with the introduction of an instrument to measure every metric of data imaginable—some even unimaginable. For instance, I have pedals on my bike that will not only tell you how much power you put out but which side of the pedal you are putting more pressure on from left to right. It's a bit ludicrous, mind numbing and intimidating to the everyday cyclist.

But it doesn't have to be. Heck, it doesn't even need to be!

Do you want to stand on the top step of an elite level race such as Red Bull Last Stand or simply be a weekend warrior out for some exercise with friends? These five simple exercises will make you faster, stronger and an all-around better cyclist—without all the extra, fruitless technology.
