Building strength and speed
Long distance road cycling is an excellent way to build endurance, but a foray into the off-road world has a huge impact on strength training. The varied terrains, obstacles and inclines require bursts of energy that improve both muscle strength and definition. Then there’s the speed pay-off - overcoming these hurdles, tackling challenging landscapes, and building your strength are amazing ways to improve your speed on road. When you’re next attempting a breakneck pace, you’ll notice the edge off-roading has given you.
