Re: Training Question - FTP/fatigue

Perhaps you can first explain how peak fatigue is determined and measured? That will have a bearing on the answer.

Re: Recording your tour - too many gadgets already!

Turn the phones off and only switch on if you want to use them. Batteries will easily last your two weeks.

Re: Record attempt scheduled

1200 miles in 24 hours on an outdoor track. The mind boggles. Are you sure, that's 50mph average! Yes, drafting a 18 wheel truck, but human powered https://worldultracycling.com/record/24-hour-outdoor-track-michael-secrest/ The velomobile record is 913 miles in 24 hours with no drafting going on, a...

Re: Hat

Cycling caps and a buff to cover the neck. Soak in water if feeling hot. The buff you can add ice from a bar and fold over to prevent it escaping.

Re: Solo 6 day LEJOG route

Thanks very much for your replies. I've ended up basically copying Michael Broadwidths route. The only thing I'm not too keen on is he goes through a lot of city centres, which in my experience are frustrating and make you lose a lot of time. But I suppose it must be the fastest route if its what h...

Re: 2020 Audax LeJog

That's the problem with unofficial records, someone might go to a lot of time and effort to beat it, only to find they hadn't... I contacted Guinness Book of Records about my JOGLE on the Chopper, but they weren't interested stating that "firsts" aren't records. Seems to me though, that u...

Re: Rob's Passage

He avoids the A3072 between Crediton and Bickleigh but instead custs across to the A396 then on to Bickleigh. Is that section of A3072 particularly bad or was it just the timings of when Rob did his ride?
