What is the point of an LSD (long-slow-distance) ride?

Today's question on RIDE with CoachParry comes from one of our members in the CoachParry Training Platform - asking what is the purpose of doing LSD (long, slow, distance) ride? Coach Devlin gives insights into why these types of sessions are so important and why we should not be skipping them. Devlin and Brad chat about what is the right intensity to do these rides at and why it is so easy to slip out of the right intensity.

If you're looking for some structured training for your cycling program, whether you're a beginner or advanced cyclist, be sure to check out the CoachParry Online Training Platform. Where you will get exactly this as well as a members only forum where you can chat to Devlin as well as our other coaches.
