Q: When your on a training ride do you stop to take breaks, to refuel, etc. or do simulate racing as much as possible? – H. Williams
A: This sort of depends on the ride. If I’m out on a long, fun relaxing ride with friends, then I stop and take pictures, eat snacks, etc. If I’m doing a specific training workout like intervals and the job at hand is more defined, then I do practice race techniques and eat on the bike. I think it’s good to be able to do both. It’s not always about the racing. You have to take time to enjoy the ride as well.
