I’m normally a low volume cyclist but this year I’m looking to increase my ability to stretch out the ride length. One way of doing so is to participate in the Zwift Fondo series. However I have no idea how to pace these types of things. I’ll try the Bambino version first and looking to crack the 2 hour mark. That’s a fairly big ride for me time wise. I’ve done a flat 100 km ride on zwift in the past with a group which was 3 hours but my longest rides are usually once a week at 1.5 hrs.
I’m currently at 173 FTP after a ramp test this week after 4 weeks of doing Starting Strength linear progression. This week was the first week of SSB LV so I’ll be pretty early in my training. Would appreciate any advice on pacing the event.
Event day is Jan 3. 52km with 580m of climbing.
