I am a beginner mountain biker that started to use TrainerRoad about three months ago. My question is how do you know what your prefered or self selected cadence really is? I have thinking about it a lot and still I don’t really know what my self selected candence is.
When I am fresh, my cadence that feels great is higher, maybe around 95 rpm. But when I start to get a bit tired, it drops slowly to around 80 rpm. Same thing if it is a hard workout with high resistance, a lot harder to maintain 95 rpm. But when rest period comes, I like to spin around 95-100 rpm.
So how to know what my self selected cadence really is? Maybe it takes years of cycling to now it?
It is not that important for my training. I am mostly curious how you guys know your self selected cadence?
