I’m leaving in few days for a 5 week trip. I currently ride about 8 hours a week and my FTP hovers right around 300. Most of the trip will be fairly remote and I’ll have little, if any, access to a bike …but it looks like I’ll have occasional access to a hotel gym with LifeCycle type bikes. Taking a bike along with is not an option. I’ve planned to lead into the trip with a fair amount of intensity and will be looking forward to a recovery for at least the start of my time away.
I’m hoping for suggestions for TR workouts for those days I can get on the LifeCycle. Which workouts would you suggest to limit loss of fitness? I know I’ll never maintain but I’m just hoping to limit my fitness losses as much as possible.
The last 2-3 weeks will be backpacking so that should provide at least some fitness. Sadly, I can’t do any running due to a back surgery 10 years ago. Any other workout suggestions also welcome!
