Hi everyone, and happy new year.
I'm not quite 50, but close enough. I used to cycle a lot and am looking to get back into it. I have a trainer at home and am planning to get into good enough shape over the winter that I can do some riding in the spring. My favourite local routes are 40-80km.
My basic question is, what kind of training is a good plan for getting back into cycling shape? I have been trying to do regular rides on my trainer of 10km, 5 days a week, at a vigorous pace, with the idea that it's better to ride often even if the rides are short, and better to do shorter courses faster rather longer courses slower. I should mention that my trainer is a Wahoo Fitness Kickr, and my go-to route has some decent hills.
Does anyone have any ideas? Is this a good way to get going?
