Cycling speed work / intervals

What sort of intervals / speed work do you recommend to help increase average speed?

To raise average speed you need to raise your threshold power. You can do that with threshold power intervals (typically 20 minutes) or longer at a slightly lower intensity (about 90% of threshold power), often called sweet spot training.
