Re: Scientists say high cadence is inefficient

I wonder though about high cadence as really it is used for climbing and on the flat Froome and others do have cadences in the 70’s pushing higher gears

Re: Carol Boardman death - case sent for trial

I get why CB wants to remain calm but the likes of the Aliston case he did not and basically got a law change, sometimes showing anger is the correct way to go. If you kill someone in a car for either careless or dangerous driving that should be jail and classed as manslaughter I'm not completely c...

Re: Heart rate monitors

If this is just for riding then Scosche Ryhtmn ones are simply the best, got the two now and so far superior to anything else out there.

Re: Cycling to work

I sweat a lot even at low intensity do showers are a must. In fact for last 15 years had 9 jobs and shower facilities (or not) are a deal breaker
