General Cycling Discussion - Rest Days?
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
Is there any recommendation? I've been biking once every 2-3 days on average but now feel like biking pretty much every day. I figure mix it up: long flats, short flats (recoveries), flat sprints, hill climbs, mountain biking, then maybe one rest day a week.

depending on the intensity and length of your workout a rest day may not be necesary. alot of people who commute also ride on the weekend. it is mostly up to you. if you doa big group ride on Sunday I would say rest Fri. lots of guys I ued to ride with who raced always took friday off

Use how your body feels as a guide. I burn out easily and workout quite a bit. Thus, I crosstrain and take a couple rest days a week.
While I take a couple days of the bike it is very rare that I have any days that I am not working out during.
Today is a cycling rest day and I strength trained this morning.
