Work Ride Thoughts

Hey Everyone

I have a 20 minute bike ride to work, pretty much all open road/very few stops.

I wonder what peoples thoughts are on how I can utilize these rides for fitness.

I am a “rouleur” with Mod improvement and I am in the build phase right now. Next event 60 km gravel race July 9. I ride between 8-12 hours a week, average is 9 and get 250 kms a week.



And furthermore, I generate typically 33XSS on these rides if I’m going at a LTP pace with a few sprints for KOM attempts etc. Are these useful XSS’s? Like should I count them toward my weekly training plan?

Any takers : )

20 minutes is pretty short. Not really sure you can do really much in that time to improve your fitness

I suspect if the intent is to maintain your fitness this 20 minutes (40 minutes per day) is always more worthwhile than sitting in a car… no such thing as no benefit to riding your bike :wink: then let Xert do its thing and see what it tells you for the fitness tracker.
