About Building an Aerobic Base

Abstract: Attended the Velocipede Annual Meeting on Saturday 1/7/17. The Team founders are race enthusiasts, and they were talking about building an aerobic base until the middle of March 2017. The idea is that if you are capable to riding 90 minutes in a fasting state with just water to keep you hydrated, then your body is conditioned to tap into your fat reserves for calories when in need. So when you are racing and in need of energy, the body can sustain on fat and without eating carbohydrates. They were saying 5 hours of training weekly to build the aerobic base, that means 3 days of 90 minute rides. This post is a place holder for further research.
