LEARN A NEW TASK. RIDE YOUR BIKE. GET A GOOD NIGHT'S SLEEP... and, according to a new study, you will improve your long-term retention of your new skills.
Yes... just more good news for bike riders and the edge we have in the world.
But as I read that formula above, and the cited article, it occurred to me we have a chance for a 2fer. Learn a cycling skill then finish with some intensity and a good night sleep and we can get better even faster.
... and burning in those new skills with some post ride sugar or carbs...
well, that's the whole point of the ride for many of us.
