Do you ride by miles or time?

Lately, I have been riding by elevation. (Sounds weird, I know.) I set an amount that I want to climb. I happen to live at the base of a bunch of great climbs. I decide if I am going to do a lot of climbing or a moderate amount and I know how many climbs I have to complete, because I am so familiar with them, to reach that goal.

I have been struggling to be a better climber because I am slower than a turtle in molasses. One of my own personal goals. Darn all this femaleness all over me.

Read the rules… it's kilometers. More Euro, more pro, longer

Time on the trainer, mixture of times or distance on the bike.

Cycling Chick, you made me very jealous and I don't even know you. I wish I lived at the base of great climbs.

It used to be about the miles for me. With age it takes more time to do those miles, so I just ride for how ever long my legs will take me.

Judge my performance by average speed. I ride by myself and have ten different routes. Use Garmin Connect for more in depth analysis.

It's like AWD, once have the technology it's hard driving anything but.

Time, as I don't have a bike computer. Took it off when I upgraded to cat 2 many years ago......was afraid to see how fast we were going :-)

I will also go by level of exertion when doing specific workouts. Do hill or sprint repeats until the body says, "No Mas" then soft pedal home.

I follow Yo Mike's approach. Time on the trainer, with a heart-rate monitor to keep me honest, and miles on the ride. Fortunately, in the rides from my house, I can select multiple elevations or mostly flat.

Trainer is a different story for me too - I go completely techno geek there and depending on my goals let myself be guided by a whole slew of different parameters including Wattage, Time, HR and all kind of derived parameters. You gotta keep your mind occupied with something...
