Testing the wheel

Posted by thepeteplan on July 26, 2008

A 1hour ride this morning just to check out the wheel I had fixed on my bike yesterday. Here is the Garmin graph of the Speed -v- Elevation -v- Heart rate. This is also the first time I’ve used the Garmin heart rate monitor (click on either graph to get a higher resolution version):

And here without the HR trace so it’s a bit clearer to see:

I’m still no super downhill road cyclist, hitting only 30.1mph maximum speed, but it’s still a step in the right direction, and it felt comfortable and safe this time. After gaining confidence in the bike coming down the hill I just didn’t fancy riding back up it again to try coming down a little faster!

Totals = 17.23miles / 17.6mph average / 140bpm average HR / 791ft of ascent
