Back to Base-ics - building a base

After the Gippy 3DT last week, this weekend was slightly less exciting but fundamental to maintaining my  form for the upcoming weeks. I rode a relaxed 200km's over both days at my E1 and it will be followed by another 60km tomorrow morning. The one consistent thing I here from many different cyclists is the importance of keeping k's in the legs and the benefit of going on long slow endurance rides. After all the racing in recent weeks combined with ergo sessions and resistance work, I enjoyed the chance to take it easy and sit on the back of a few bunches and not feel obliged to roll any turns.
