CPTIPS is a hobby for me, originally pulled together as I tried to understand the "lore" of how to become a better cyclist and improve my own cycling. It has grown over the years, and taken on a "Wikipedia" quality as I have added links to other websites and included questions and comments from readers. Although CPTIPS is a hobby, there are those annoying internet web hosting expenses to be covered. If you feel it was of value, consider making that next cycling related purchase by clicking through to one of our sponsors from this page. The small commissions from your purchases add up, and help to keep the lights on at CPTIPS by defraying the ISP expenses.
Although biking is my love, my passion is biking to see parts of the world and cultures that are different from the Pacific NW. I've recently pulled together a few travel related links (which I use often) and figured they might be of help to any of you planning a trip. Hope you enjoy the website. Dick
This website has been designed as a "cyber"book. It contains a number of chapters (webpages) which are updated regularly or new webpages added (based on reader feedback. In addition, reader's questions are added to illustrate specific concepts. For those of you with a slow modem, the entire page is available on 3.5" disc.. After repeated questions from all of you about applying the content to personal training programs, I have also taken the information from the website and applied it to a software program that uses editorial comments and hyperlinks to lead you stepwise through the website material to develop a personalized training program.
There are three ways to take advantage of this site.
Use the table of contents, as in a printed text, to find relevant chapters and material.
The glossary can be used as an index - words are defined with a hyperlink to the relevant webpage.
The archived page of "Quiz Questions", provides an interesting way to test your personal knowledge and hyperlink directly to the pages with appropriate content when you are unsure of the answer.
