This is a fat-burner. Rider’s challenge themselves to stay primarily aerobic in this ride – easy, moderate, sort-of-hard, at or just below threshold RPE (rate of perceived exertion); RPM 80-100. Climbs and jumps can exceed threshold with 80-60 RPM.
For riders who just love to crank up the intensity and ride in the lower RPM range, this is going to be more challenging than it appears. It’s the perfect opportunity to remind riders to train and use both fuel systems – aerobic = primarily fat and anaerobic = primarily carbs. Lighter longer, harder stronger.
