I want to improve my average speed for road cycling. I've done 500+ miles in the last month, but although I do feel fitter and stronger, my average speed just seems to stay about the same. It's difficult for me to have a rigid structured training regeime at the moment, also I don't use any form of trainer, I just ride.
- Is there anything specific I should be doing to improve average speed and endurance, apart from the obvious of riding as much as possible and trying to push harder each time.
- How quickly is it reasonable to expect to see an improvement?
