For those of you who follow this blog, you know that I have been preparing for the Pacific Populaire, the first century ride of the season in these parts. I have been doing this ride for several years. It keeps me motivated throughout the cold, wet winter months.
I subscribe to the Global Cycling Network (GCN) YouTube channel and receive regular emails when new items are posted. Look what arrived in my Inbox this morning. Just in time.
I follow these tips. I gradually extend my commute home 3-4 times a week doing 30-50 km depending on the time I have available. And, now that the weather is warmer, I ride to the office on an empty stomach. I have discovered over the past several years that using my commute time to train has greatly increased my endurance.
If you don’t already subscribe to the GCN and, are a road cyclist, I strongly recommend you do. Their videos are helpful and entertaining.
