Long Intermediate paced rides (15-17 mph) are my cup-o-tea. I like to conquer hills but am not one to 'hammer' the duration of a ride.
I am more of a mtb'er, but there are such great roads out here it would be a shame not to ride them. I want to get in shape to ride centuries and/or at least make it up any hill I come across (You hear that Iowa Hill? One day you will be my B!#@%!!!).
I am Short, Old, Bald, and I have a gut, but my legs and lungs are o.k.. I would call myself an intermediate rider who is not afraid to tackle anything...I just won't be fast doing it.
Yes, I agree.
Good on the mtb, not so good on the roadie...but persistent. Long slow rides with long slow climbs. :)
I enjoy the number of rides posted and the variety of length and speeds to suit different levels (or for hard days and easy days in the saddle).
