Well. My off season pretty much starts on Monday, and I'm really excited for getting stuck into some winter training!
Next year is my first as a junior, so that means longer races at a faster pace.
The question is, how many miles?
Or is it just a case of "Pedalare! Pedalare!"?
Is there anything I should work into my training routine?
My sprinting's pretty poor.

In my first year of cycling, I'm finally prepared to enter some races. However, when applying for my BC license, I stumbled across the Gear Restriction information:
