Chill out after the ride. But before plan your strategy and what you want to get out of your cycle. Make sure you always do some skills training during your ride and not just work on fitness. Most people neglect to do bike skills- this can be your huge advantage http://www.triathlon-hacks.com/road-bike-skills/ @elscorbs
