steady ride. Keep power and HR in Z2. It is important to do this consistently and develop a good endurance base if you haven't already done so.
If you have been doing 2:30hour rides for the past few weeks at Z2 and this is comfortable and you don't feel tired after it. Then either extend this ride to upto 3hours OR ride over long hills, stay seated and hit Zone 3 at a few minutes at a time, in total 30mins OR
2x10mins @ a steady to moderate effort (upper Z2-lower zone 3) seated and in a harder gear, with 3mins easy in between
