What a great ride this weekend. Just three summit ride was all with a 112 miles for a total. Just to give you a run down of how things went. Left around 6 to Preston Mike, Rex, Chris, and Steve, the morning was a cool 60 degrees to start and it stayed pretty cool for most of the ride. As we begin our first climb Jeremy Bowen catch to us via a vehicle. Which was very fortunate for us to have Jeremy and his Dad there. We keep a nice pace although there are always a few in back on the climbs Okay mostly just me. Chris took the honors of being the king of every MTN pass we cam to. And I think he took top speed as well on the flats we had a nice paceline going of course coming out of strawberry it nice to hold a 27 mph while the rest of it we keep pushing and believe for the most part to Montpelier we keep a 23-25 pace. So here are the Numbers from my sigma (not the most accurate but pretty dang close):
Avg: 16.76 mph
ride time: 6:43
Max Speed: 45.05 Chris passed me on the down hill so I assume he took honors hear. But a mention about Jermey Bowen he is starting to hang in there on what I like to call the "symertric tuck!" (LOL)
Burned 5661 Kcal.
Feet Climb: 6390
To but that in miles is about 31
Avg cadence of 74
Max cadence of 123
avg hrt 144
max hrt 166
3.5 hrs in Zone two
The Max temp that I had was 11o.o! remeber it sits on the front of my black bike
Max incline was 8% with an average of 3%
My LOTOJA totals last year were
7903 ft in climbing
8% for the max incline
So salt River is a little bit higher but not any steeper then what we did today not much longer meaning that we climbed Strawberry at mile 80 and that is about the same mileage that you climb Salt River.
Cheers Loved the ride and look forward to the next one!
Special thanks to Jeremy Bowens dad for be the Sag and having some cold h20!
Yes we even had some of that great training wind to assure that we were getting the most out of the downhills as well.
