Apocalypse miaow.


Andy cathcart's study involves riding a 64.35 km time trial using a compu trainer - £1500 of machine dedicated to providing power, cadence, speed distance and various other figures.

I was undergeared for the course set, so ended up spinning faster than i wanted to. As such i have a wee bitty sore ass. Still, with a bigger chainring, it'll be fine. Took 2+ hours (average speed 30.3 kmph, at 175 watt output, with a max of 529 watts. Interesting. Maybe!

Next one on thursday...

yeah....well, not for me as such. just helping out andy c. I *am* interested in my power output though, at least in terms of sustaining it for the 2 or so hours. It was not really ideal cos of the high cadence (for me) on a relatively flat course. and being on a singlespeed...If i was a tough guy it'd be nearer 250 watts...
