I first discovered Joe back in 2011, when I started training for triathlons, I bought his world famous book, the Triathlon Training Bible,  and it truly was my triathlon training bible.   This was his second of over 14 books and his new book, Ride Inside, is October 2020. You can pre-order it on VeloPress. Perfect timing as many of us have been riding inside these past few months on Zwift, Peloton, and Rouvey.

Joe Friel is one of the most trusted endurance sports coach in the world. His books have helped cyclists, triathletes, masters athletes, novices, and pros reach their training and racing goals. His Training Bible books for road cyclists, mountain bikers, and triathletes are used by several national sports federations to train their coaches A few of his bestselling titles include Fast After 50, Power Meter Handbook, Going Long and so many more.
