I'm wondering what it will take to increase my average speed to say something like 18 - 20 mph.
My main activity is running but recently I've been doing less running and more cycling. Having said that I'm only averaging about 100 - 150 miles a week. My average speed is about 16 ish mph.
I weigh about 10 st 4 so weight isn't really an issue. I'm riding a steel bike which weighs about 11kg. My average may change a little when I move over to my 'summer' bike which is about 8kg.
Not knowing much about training/cycling (in contrast to running where I've completed a number of marathons and ultras) I'm not sure what it takes to increase average speed on the bike. I assume I would need to do more miles a week but how many?
Also, can I just rely on more miles to up the average or do I need to include intervals and other similar sessions? (I assume more miles will get me to a certain point but then more specific sessions are required to take me further).
Would appreciate the benefit of your advice?
Any help will be apprecited.
I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
