I have been reading the last two nights about different workouts. I have a hybrid and have been trying to ride pretty hard. My assumption(I know what that means) has been ride hard when you ride to get the best workout. My workouts have been between 30 and 60 minutes where I average around 16 to 17mphs. The other day I decided to try a 20mile ride and averaged 16.1mphs. I try to push hard and have several inclines. 2 that are .5miles each on my route. I just started looking at this training section. I have read about about anaerobic and aerobic workouts. One being better for weight loss than the other. weight loss is my primary goal along with a stronger heart. So should I increase my ride lengths with less intensity, maybe 2 hr rides instead of hour rides or continue to ride hard when I ride? Thanks for any advice.
