I was wondering at what distance do most new riders really start to see improvement,
I had been ridding in a group about 21 miles a day with a day off now and then.
My new goal is to try and ride around 31 miles a day, I am finding it easier now to roll alittle faster I can now hold 19.6-20 for a couple miles and then coast down to 18.5 and back up again I find it easier to ride intervals alone so that also means I am pulling my own weight without drafting.
I went about 7 miles at 20mph today very little wind but it was very easy my pulse was resonable around 135 versus 152 on previous weeks.
I guess Iam getting better slowly. my age is 58Y/o and I have been ridding since July 2008.
My ride has a 11 mile loop in the ride so if i complete 2 laps its 22 miles plus the return and departure.
