I am after some advice please.
I have completed a few 100km plus rides and whilst I always stuggle with the last 15km or so I think this is more to do with my lack of fueling during the ride than my overall level of fitness. I believe I have learnt enough from the podcasts etc and know what I need to do here, 200 to 300 calories per hour etc. previously I only drank water during my 100km rides.
My goal is to complete a 160km/100mile ride and whilst I feel I have enough training under my belt to complete this I was after some advice on pacing. Appreciate there isn’t a hard and fast rule here but is there a percentage of ftp, average power number or power zone I should be aiming for to ensure I can complete this ride?
There is close to 2km of elevation on this ride, a major hill climb near the end so I want to make sure I have enough in the tank to push through.
Thanks for the advice in advance and HNY everyone.
