Honestly there isn’t an easy answer to this as there are many reasons to be in the gym and not on your bike. Winter, injury prevention and recovery, strength, and of course most people have their own reasons as well.
As Jason explains it’s not about being the strongest or the fastest for most people, but having the strength to ride in a safe and enjoyable way. This is something that he has learnt over the past 25 years of being a personal trainer, and creating specific training programs for cyclists and athletes alike.
