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 Outer Harbour approx once a week, and other times ride up to Crafers...and I go to the Gym... so I'm pretty fit... I just can't seem to get faster!
I beat my RLC ride by 20mins this year, so I guess there is some evidence of improvement, but I don't think I pushed myself to the limits..
Does anyone have any training tips that could help?
