5 Basic Facts – Lactate Threshold for #IndoorCycling Riders: What You Need To Know

In today’s indoor cycling ride, a few riders approached me about lactic acid, the infamous “burn” they experience and the need to know more about lactic threshold when planning their spring rides. As the weather improves towards the end of February and beginning of March, some of my indoor riders seek a gradual start to their outdoor training.

To help these riders, I prepared a summary of the five basic facts every rider should know about lactic acid, its production, its impact and the benefits of lactic threshold training.

The best way to communicate this information is in this handy quick reference guide (click for full-size):


Ride strong.
