This information provides insight into the cyclist’s personal strengths and what aspects of their cycling need improving. Power testing also provides information that can be used to establish training levels, or zones. After you’ve trained for several weeks you’ll want to retest and measure for improvements. If you don’t have your own power meter ask about borrowing one for testing.
