Cycling On Form reveals the pro approach to cycling training.

Riding a bike faster takes more than just fitness. It takes skills that you can master to become a faster, stronger rider. In his new guide, former professional bike racer Tom Danielson shows how to transform your cycling from amateur to professional level with the fitness and time you have now.

Danielson reveals how the pros go beyond the modern standards of interval workouts, base-building, and recovery to train the whole athlete, mind and body. Danielson shows how to truly ride and train to the fullest through:

  • Fitness: Self-tests to identify your riding strengths and weaknesses then focus on custom training to address them.
  • Mental focus: The pros know that winning means using your head and your legs. You’ll get pro tips on big-picture goal setting and mid-ride concentration strategies to help you stay focused.
  • Execution: Cycling is hard and executing a great ride when it matters takes practice. Danielson shares on-the-bike skills, efficient and powerful techniques, strategies to stay in the race, ways to finish with the lead group, and how to excel on a ride you’ve never done before.
  • Nutrition: Pro riders put sports nutrition into daily practice. Danielson distills the facts of diet, food as fuel, and fueling to recover.

Too many cyclists train by trying to set new Strava PRs, only to get frustrated by the limited gains. There’s a better way. Cycling On Form unlocks a pro method for riding faster and stronger.

About the Authors

Praise for Tom Danielson

Praise for Cycling On Form

“I have done a lot of training in my career as a cyclist, and I have never seen a group of people or a company with such knowledge and passion dedicated to improving performance. Tom and Kourtney Danielson at CINCH Cycling really have a proven roadmap to success with the Form Performance Method laid out in Cycling On Form. All that is needed is to follow the proven method to whatever path of success you choose.” —Cory Lockwood, professional road cyclist for team Legion and General Classification Winner of the 2019 Redlands Bicycle Classic

“Through the FORM method, Tom has constructed a model for not only being a better cyclist, but for moving beyond ‘the numbers’ and toward realizing full potential both on and off the bike.” —Rich Williams, Groupon CEO

“After training with CINCH for the past three years, I’ve learned the cycling-specific techniques that make me a better rider and racer; healthier and injury-free; and more effective and positive off the bike. A core concept CINCH has taught me is that life is a process of trying, failing, learning, and growing, in order to move forward to a better version of yourself.” —Lilburn Shaw, 2018 Masters Road National Champion

“Tom is one of those rare individuals who can coach as well as he can compete. He has a compelling teaching style and the CINCH methods found in Cycling On Form have helped me to improve cycling skills hugely even with limited personal time.” —Ginna Hendricks, CINCH Coaching client, dentist, and mom of three

“Tom has taken his pro understanding and created an unmatched coaching system that can transform novice and professionals alike. The CINCH system pulls back the veil on many myths about what it takes to be great in the sport of cycling and creates a pathway for athletes of all abilities to win their rides.” —Kris Hendricks, age-group winner of the 2019 Breck Epic MTB Stage Race
