I have been a regular daily rider for going on 4 years now. My biggest problem has been knowing when to say enough is enough and it is time to rest. I usually wait too long to take a day off and end up in a heap. How does one find the balance where you are getting enough rest but not staying off the bike too long?
It strikes me as odd, how many riders I see that are extremely fast yet never really ride all that much. Many of them only do the group ride once or twice a week and that is it, yet they are very strong on the bike.
I have found that I can make myself stronger by staying off the bike as well, but I am always concerned that I will stay off too long and lose fitness.
