Weight affects cycling performance. Many cyclists focus on losing weight. While carrying too many pounds can slow you down, being too lean reduces power and increases the risk of illness. Determining your optimal riding weight is an individual process and can be complex. Several factors come into play -- body type, cycling goals, nutrition habits, among others. The following resources offer guidance on determining your ideal cycling weight and devising a plan to safely reach it.
