    Junk Miles in Winston-Salem, NC

    I'll be there this weekend and looking for 4-5 hours on Saturday. Anyone live around there and have some good routes. Or better yet, have a ride I can tag along on? If so PM me.

    junk miles are mile where you ride past junkyards, and by implication, their junkyard dogs.

    you can throw down on some pretty tough climbs which are within easy riding distance of winston salem. sauratown and pilot mountain spring to mind. i have only been riding in that area a few times but i think it's great.

    What is this nice long ride you speak of?
    Please remember that all statements unless quoted, are strictly my opinion of what happened. That there are as many opinions as there are spectators attending. I just choose to publish mine on this forum. And would NEVER intend to purposely hurt or discredit any other cyclist.... With that said... HTFU!

    not exactly.

    riding a bike and not adhering to a carefully defined, coach approved, watt-metered, highly structured and periodized training plan, is junk miles.

    Nope. Especially not during base...commuting miles tend to be L2(ish), which is just what many plans call for a lot of.

    Junk miles during race season, yeah sure, but not the case at all in September-February.

    Wow, who knew this would evolve into a discussion on training plans. Wait. Everyone knew.
