What’s your preferred cadence for SS and why?

If you’re aiming to reduce VLaMax with your SS rides, lower cadence is recommended.

I’ll usually mix things up. Start higher cadence about 90, and then drop to 80, then to 70.

My HR reduces noticeably when I reduce cadence. So reducing the cadence also lowers the RPE, which is a nice benefit towards the end of a 30min SS interval.
