Given that Camp Pendleton is closed to cyclists this weekend, we’re trying a new LSD route. This Sunday, we’ll head south to UCSD and then north to Oceanside Harbor for a total of 60 miles at long, steady pace after Saturday’s TdF ride. Options to cut it short for those who wish.
LSD stands for Long Steady Distance. The goal is a steady state ride at B and C levels. That means staying in zone 2 on the flats and zone 3 on the little pitches … a conversation-paced ride. No surging or attacking.
