Training a different type of endurance

So I used to swim, and loved the 1, 2, 4, 8 or 16-minute endurance that you get from the sport. After cycling for 4 months I feel I"ve lost that skill and when I'm on the XC trails I'm weak when going fast for those lengths. On the other hand, when I used to swim I couldn't hold up a cycling run for more than 30 min without dying.

How do you train both the ability to keep your heart rate high for a short while and be able to cycle 2-3 solid hours?

Swim once or twice a week. Or do sprints on the bike.
I miss the effect swimming had on my aerobic capacity; but
I never did like laps, or pools.

One ride a week is for sprints one for hill repeats or intervels and a fun ride in there plus a three hour ride on the weekend and you are set to rock and roll.
