While unreservedly recommended for both community and academic library Contemporary Sports collections, it should be noted for personal reading lists that Cycling Science is also available in a digital book format.”

—Library Bookwatch, August 2017 Midwest Book Review

“The [Cycling Science] editors are both world-leading cycling scientists, Cheung in Canada and Zabala in Spain, and for their 40(!) chapters, they’ve recruited an extremely distinguished list of scientists from around the world. It covers all aspects of human physiology, bike design, training, racing, health, and so on. If you’re a cyclist interested in the science of your sport, I’d rate this pretty much a must-buy as a reference tome.”
