My heart rate doesn't go down, I just get faster
At the training races I always average around 155-160bpm with a max of 185 during the final sprints.
But my heart rate never drops below 150bpm. If it does, I'm not putting enough effort in.
But it really depends of what kind of workout or ride you are doing. Aerobic is a different HR zone then anaerobic for example. For now you are definitely doing the right thing, building miles and exercising every day!
My resting pulse is around 45-48.
