What would be an optimum schedule to incorporate weight training during the season?
I am currently doing legs on mondays as this gives me the rest of the week to sort of recover for the harder weekend rides/events.
I currently ride tues/thurs, sat/sun.
My weight training has migrated from heavy sets (8-10) to a much higher rep workout (20-25 reps).
Anyone have similar experiences?

If you take a look at Joel Friel's training bible it will give you a good schedule to build into your training year. I spend the fall/winter months in the gym. During thee season I use different on the bike workouts to maintain/improve my strength.
