I do mostly long distance cycling. I probably average about 150 m per week and do as 1-2 centuries a month. planning on doing STP in a day 205m. What cadence do you all use. I have read the articles talking about 85-95 cadence being optimal. Is this for everything? or just road racing. I just got a cadence meter and was suprised that my cadence is lower, prob 70-80 range when I feel comfortable. 85-95 makes me feel like my legs will spin off. Should I just keep pushing forward to see if i can get to that level and get used to it or do what feels comfortable. I am a big muscular rider at about 6, 2" and 215lb. Does this way into equation?
