    My commute is 200km per week year-round (in Canadian winters). Four bikes, no car. I tell my bikes I love them. Sometimes I leave 10 min early so I can take it easy for once, but just end up being 15 minutes early: "I have extra time so if I burn out it's not a big deal. If I'm sore tomorrow, I can just leave earlier"It is a sickness.

    #askgcntraining When I am putting the bike on my trainer I have been switching the back tyre to an old worn tyre to preserve the tread on my 'good' tyres. I know putting a specific trainer tyre will be more durable, but does it effect the actual training itself? For instance, does it significantly alter the resistance or calculations of virtual power?

    shift to lower gears before the hills instead of half way up. keep your elbows close to your body instead of bent outwards. get rid of any excess gear before every ride: lights in the middle of the day, ass-savers on a sunny day, bottles and cages on a short ride and so on...

    #askgcntraining Hello GCN training advisors! For the last 2 offseasons I was doing my indoor trainings mainly based on your earlier training videos, which helped me a lot to improve. I'm now pretty good in climbing and able to go figthing for local Strava KOMs or Top10s. But i realized that these abilities are not really the ones I need to participate and get good results in (amateur) races. I can't even get close to my good climbing efforts after 1-2 hours of harder racing even on flat. So what type of training do you recommend fo being able to keep a higher level for much longer period and then to still be able to increase it by the end. Thanks a lot!

    Does it have to be a road bike? A MTB might allow a better up right stance and suspension would absorb some of the oscillations. A lead weight in the handle bar would off set the turning moment in the vertical plan (like tractors have).... but of course it all adds to the weight.

      It’s been a very long time since I was a decent cyclist, but I was always a way better swimmer. The problem was bulk. I was a very powerfully built swimmer and put on muscle just thinking about exercise. Bloody useless when you live and commute in a hilly place (North Devon). Moved up country to the more gentle county of hereford, but I’m still to bulky to climb with the whippets!

    #askGCNtraining I've signed up for a LEJOG ride next September (2020) which will cover the total distance in 9 days. I've recently got back into cycling after a few years away. I'm limited for time to train during the week due to working shifts. I'd like to use my winter training time to do as much as I can to get the fitness up ready for Spring. Could you advise me of a training plan/style I could fit round working shifts to help me improve my fitness and get me ready for multi day long distance rides I'll use in training (and LEJOG itself) once the better weather is back in the UK next year. Thanks.

    Nice video. I'm 51 and and have been an avid rider since I was quite you g. I actually raced as a USCF category 4 racer for 3 years back in the mid-90s. I was really bad, but I gave it my best go of it. I've had several bikes. My favorite bicycle of all time to ride which I still own is a 1991 Marin Indian fire Trail made from 7005 series aluminum. It's a hardtail with a chromoly Fork. No suspension. I've written it hard in the mountains and anywhere else I can get it. My average weight over the course of owning this bike is around 250 lb. The frame has held up beautifully and is still comfortable while at the same time transmitting a maximum amount of my energy output into propelling me in the direction I want to go.

    They did sort of stretch the rules to break the 2:00 marathon record. It’s still a remarkable human feat that Eliud Kipchoge was able to run that fast (a 1:59:59 marathon is the equivalent of running 100m sprints in just over 17 seconds - 422 times in a row). However Kipchoge had a series of pacers and cyclists in a V formation to break the wind in front of him. In front of the pacemakers were a series of cars. The one directly in front of the runners was a pace car showing projected finish times and carrying a laser system that projects where the pacemakers should run. So if we stretch the rules for cycling then consider the hour record for a recumbent set in 2016 when Francesco Russo travelled 92.432 km on a 5.8 km oval in Germany. In July 2018 the team made an attempt at 95 km but had to postpone due to bad weather. I think it might be possible to speculate about a 100 km hour record.
