Best Cycling Training to Build Stamina & Endurance with Limited Time

Most of us are not pro riders and don’t have all day available for long endurance rides. If you have a busy life but still want to build endurance and stamina with limited time available, your best training option is to perform harder endurance rides which some cyclists call “tempo” or “sweet spot” rides. Here are some examples of this training session:

Ride 1.5- 2 hours at 75-88% of threshold power instead of a long, slow endurance ride of 3+ hours (50-60% of threshold)

Ride 1-1.5 hours at 82-95% of threshold power instead of 2-3 hours at 60-75% of threshold.

Do you do regular “tempo” or “sweet spot” rides? What has worked best for you to build endurance, stamina, and threshold power with limited time? Please leave us a comment. Thanks for watching!
