Feel like doing a funky ride to celebrate the New Year? Here are a few suggestions…
If you are riding outside: ride the distance in miles corresponding to the temperature in Fahrenheit. If it is a warm day- let’s say 70F- you will get in a nice long 70 mile ride while enjoying the weather. If it is cold, your ride will be shorter but still sweet.
Do intervals corresponding to the date. So for example, on 12/31/18, do intervals of 12, 31 and 18 minutes then ride freely for the remainder of the time. For 1/1/19, do intervals of 1,1, and 19 minutes in duration then ride freely for the remainder of the time. Do the short (1 min) intervals at VO2, maybe trying for a new PR. The longer intervals could be over/unders (alternating 1 min at 85%, 1 min at 95%, etc.) or a medium to long climb.
Any other ideas for a fun ride?
