I love cycling and I hate doing leg workouts when I lift. I alternate lifting and cardio so when I workout my lower body my legs don't have as much strength when I go riding the next day and that bugs me. So is the cycling enough to build strength in my legs or do I need to do lower-body weight lifting to improve my ride? My rides are usually pretty intense and exhausting--up mountain passes, etc. I get a pretty good workout. Please tell me I can skip the squats.
