Nice Group Experience, Onerous Leg Day, Then Onerous Higher Day – BionicOldGuy

On Tuesday my native group went on a pleasant loop journey on a stupendous spring day. I led this one, pinch-hitting for our regular chief Kris. We did a counterclockwise loop round Chesbro and Uvas reservoirs, with an additional out-and-back on Casa Loma highway to Rancho Canada Del Oro open house. As a result of I used to be main I took my e-bike which made it simpler for me to be within the again or up entrance as wanted. I additionally used sufficient help so I didn’t should push too exhausting, so this counted as a simple day although we rode greater than 30 miles.

On Wednesday I did a solo journey on my recumbent. I experimented with leaving the 28″ again wheel on, placing the 20″ wheel again on up entrance, and placing my extra upright cruising seat on. With this configuration I re-rode my 19K San Martin time trial!!. I used to be 10% slower than having the bike in my efficiency set-up (28″ wheels back and front, extra reclined seat, and headrest), as anticipated. However my time at the moment of 45:13 was a bit quicker than my earlier quickest time in “cruising configuration”, which was with 20″ wheels back and front. That’s really excellent news, as a result of a 20″ wheel within the again shouldn’t be one of the best, the derailleur is just too near the bottom. So now I can simply swap from “cruising” to “efficiency” modes by altering seats and entrance wheel, a couple of ten minute job. I like this versatile bike! After the time trial I did some longer intervals after which some sprints, and I felt nice after the journey.

Yesterday I did my higher physique exercise at residence then went for a simple journey on my recumbent. I needed to take away some layers as a result of it received heat on the end- it received as much as 77 (25 C) right here at the moment

Tuesday’s journey is on Strava right here. Wednesday’s right here. Yesterday right here and right here.
