I posted another question yesterday which got me thinking about what I should be aiming for as a new rider (apart from recreational jaunts).
I’m not unfit as I run regularly (up to 20 miles a week) but an achilles injury means I need to do something else for a while and cycling seems the easiest to manage timewise.
I’m 16.5 stone and 5’11" so not small. Our kit is a hybrid bike on a Tacx Vortex smart trainer linked to Zwift. We are looking at getting a cheap road bike to leave on it permanently as it doesn’t like the hybrid tyres.
One of the things I see posted about a lot is wattage. As a new rider what sort of average wattage should I be aiming for? Let’s say on a 30-60 min ride. I want to build bike fitness slowly not kill myself.
Thanks for any help.
