Recovery ride today!
I rode a 25 miler today to let my legs get back into the rythmn following the 50-miler on Sunday.
I find riding easier now – unless there is a headwind I have a good turn of speed and middle distances – say 25- 35 miles don’t tax me at around 17-18mph average.
I felt good, til I read today’s Cycling Weekly Giro news, which tells of Bradley Wiggins’ efforts today:
“The 29-year-old rider completed the tough 125km stage averaging 23.6mph, with an average power output of 255 watts. His maximum power output peaked at an electrifying 912 watts.”
Ok, i’ve got a bit of work to do yet, then….
