The CPTIPS website began as an on line version of my book on cycling nutrition, BICYCLING FUEL. It has grown over the years with the addition of links to appropriate websites, questions and comments from readers,and extracts of pertinent articles. I hope it helps you to improve your cycling performance - and please take a second to send any comments or questions to me.
