Pedal, Stretch, Breathe: The Yoga of Bicycling
If you’re a bicyclist who’s curious about yoga (or just about why your hips feel so tight after a long ride), a yoga practitioner who’s curious about cycling, or a full-fledged bicycling yogi, you’ll enjoy this illuminating book. In a friendly, accessible voice, Refer integrates yogic techniques and philosophy with everyday bicycling. Inspired by Refer's years of learning and teaching yoga, and the many miles she's traveled up and down the hills of Seattle, Pedal, Stretch, Breathe is a remarkable resource. Sections of the book include: How to breathe your way up the steepest hills (and the science behind bike paths and air quality), a flow chart of stretches to ease your achy knees and sore back, a guide to your and your bicycle’s chakras that will charm any skeptic’s heart, learning to get over road rage, and so much more!
