I'm Ian Gibson, a British immigrant to the United States working in higher education. My main interests are cycling, exercise physiology as it relates to cycling, astronomy, philosophy, and literature. This is where I write about all of these things, and more.

To make things easier to navigate, I've divided my website up into several separate sections, listed in decreasing order of esotericism:

Training Notes: infrequent updates on my cycling training

Cycling: a collection of articles, mostly on the science of cycling

Articles: longer pieces I occasionally write on topics other than cycling

Reading: books I've read, with commentary

Comment: my blog on anything else that's caught my attention

My personally-developed Sprint Cycling Training Plan

My Annual Strength-Training Program, designed to build my strength prior to the full Sprint Cycling Training Plan, consists of 20-week Autumn-Winter (off-season) and Spring-Summer (pre-season) macrocycles, along with a brief Strength Maintenance block for the weight loss periods that separate them.

I've also previously used simple Medium Volume and High Volume off-season strength-training programs, along with High-Frequency Sub-Maximal and High-Volume High-Intensity programs.
