I've read that some people still don't believe in cadence. Today was proof that it works for ME. As I've put on miles this summer I've worked on getting my cadence higher and higher. What used to be comfortable at 82 was comfortable at 87 then 92 now 95 plus. Last Sunday on my quest to run down tomdaniels, I found my groove, it's about 95 rpm's. In the past I usually stayed in the eighties. Today I put the theory to the test. It went out on my easy 16.6 mile MUP loop. My goal was to keeping my cadence between 90-100 the entire 16.6 miles and see if (a) I could sustain that for the entire time (b) my average mph would increase. My best average to date was middle 15's with Gregcavi pushing me the whole way. Today I demolished that record and set a new personal best at 17.1. I had to do with while stopping twice to move my seat back up because my cf post cracked and it's slipping down.(that's another thread). My next goal will be sustaining that pace on the 26 mile MUP loop, then take it on the roads.
