"Thanks for the clarification Rob. Another question - how do you know when it's best to stick it in the big chain ring or stick in the low chain ring for higher cadence?An older rider once suggested to me to only use the big chain ring when your…"

"Average cadence over the duration of the ride is what I am talking about Ads, ,higher pedal RPMs generally means you can ride longer without getting tired, since the idea is to spin the pedals more quickly at an easier gear, rather than burn through…"

"wow that is aweseomly high. i find that i average about 80-85. My goal is to average above 90 and work to 95."

Jason Wellington commented on FLUIDDELTA's blog post Training Tips to increase general speed
"I tend to average in the high 90s for most of my rides through the hills. On the flat I will be in the low 100s and tend to ride unto about 107 and 108 . I find that once I get into the 90s or below I feel like I am really having to grind and start…"

"ive been trying to work alot on my cadence lately too. have been reading Tour De Lance and they talk alot about him being so successful due to the extremely high cadence he has and can maintain for ridiculous periods of time."

Adam Brown commented on FLUIDDELTA's blog post Training Tips to increase general speed
"Some great tips here.Rob, when focusing on cadence, how much resistance should you maintain though? I mean, it's easy to get the cadence up to well over 100rpm if you're in the granny gear! LOLI.e Should you be going in as hard a gear as…"

"This was also on my mind after last weekend's RLC. I felt good. 100kms, no worries but my average speed was 23.4km/h and I knew others who did it in 31km/h +.  I think it comes down to increasing the cadence. That is my main aim at the…"

Training Tips to increase general speed

Posted on January 16, 2012 at 11:01 26 Comments

Dear AC members, 

I am seeking some genuine advice on how I can improve my time taken to complete events such as Amy's Ride, TDU, RLC... etc.

My endurance is pretty good, and on the flat I could probably ride across Australia  lol... but I am not fast.

I can ride the hills,... but slowly.. Downhill is not an issue, I love the speed, and I guess that's where I make up lost time, but in general I am only riding an average of 25-28Kms/hour overall... 

I ride out to…

Tempranillo in my Drink holder!

Dear Members of AC,

A couple of you have asked how the bottle of Red came to be in my drink holder... So I thought I would send this out and then you can all find out at once!

I rode in the TDU & Ride Like Crazy in Jan 2011.. I used these events to raise funds for my daughters' school.  The school community and a local church help me to raise $650 which was then used to purchase sporting equipment for their new Gymnasium.  A further $100 was donated to Cancer…

Hey there,

I'm new on AC. Happy to find out what all you Cyclists are up to!

I just completed Amy's Ride - I managed a solid 85Kms..I'm no longer a Willunga Hill 'Virgin', I know thousands have already achieved this and much more....

But I'm an amature and this was my PB to date so I was really proud that day!

 

I will be happy to join you on any social rides, that I consider as my training for future community ride events.



In Jan '12  I am…
