This episode of Endurance Sports on FIRE! covers the science behind whether building a bigger base in the fall/winter is better or worse than building a bigger engine.
If you’re concerned about being able to ride a given distance, then the size of your gas tank is an issue. If you’re not concerned about being able to ride a given distance, if your gas tank is big enough already, why do you want a bigger tank?
If you want to go faster, you need to increase your FTP (functional threshold power). You cannot do that very well (if at all) by building your base. It requires High-Intensity Interval Training (HIT) sessions.
