This year I spent a lot of time working on the 95-105rpm range. Even on longer distances, and it appears that - based on looking back at the majority of the season - I ride faster for longer at those ranges than I do for lower than that.
That being said, lately I'm finding I'm back down to around 95 a lot for longer miles, slower. I've had a lot of very hard workouts and a lot more recovery days in between. I did speed work today and I'm rarely below 100 for that.
