I'm looking for a couple of good books to help me put together a progressive bike training schedule. Any suggestions?

These two are older, but have invaluable information. Just finished reading both in conjunction with Friels book and was able to put together a training plan based on all three.

Training for cycling :the ultimate guide to improved performance
Phinney, Davis

Bicycle road racing :complete program for training and competition
Borysewicz, Edward

I also picked up Lemonds road racing book which was OK, but not as useful.

Happy training!

Try the Carmicheal book that is listed as the Armstrong Carmicheal Training book. The writing is lousy but the workouts and the information is good.

For old school training techniques go with the Lemond book or even better is the Bernard Hinault book if you can get your hands on it. The Hinault book "introduces" clippless pedals as the latest and greatest.

...try Serious Cycling by Dr. Edmund Burke. Pretty good stuff.
