Is this on level ground? Just concentrate on keeping the same effort on the pedals. If you have an HRM, you can use that, just be aware that HR lags effort, so it wont show short term variations in effort.

Riding in a paceline is a good way to learn how to maintain a steady effort.

Using a computer that has a cadence read out can help you maintain a steady pace.
