anybody doing this ride .. how hard is it ?
Thank you, cyclist's have higher Heart Rates compaired to Triatheletes. My team mate who does Iron man races. When we ride together his heart rate is much lower than mine. I am pretty sure the 234 Max is a bogus reading. I did look down on fiddlers and iron bridge and saw 208 and 212 heart rate.nismosr said:I backed out on this ride, none of my riding friends wants to do it. hopefully next year.
looking at your data, for 100 miles you only burn 2000+ calories .. is that accurate reading same also with the HR, your max was about 234bpm, it's because my data on my 305 when I did ramapo was 169 average with 190max and my triatheletes friends says I'm working too hard with that kind a hr.
congrats ... you won the race !
Going into the last hill it was the 5 of us, once we were about 1/2 way into the climb myself and the guy from Kissena (Joaquin) had about 50-100 meters on the other three. I was in 2nd spot and took off with 150 meters to go and got a good jump so he did not have time to get me at the finish. I talked with Teddy after the race, he is 14 yrs old. He was 5th. The guy with the Cycle Craft Jersey (John) was 3rd and my team mate Herb was 4th.thegock said:How did the five man sprint finish play out? Also, how old is that kid Teddy who finished in that pack?
My Garmin had just over 10,700 feet of climbing, btw.
