Cycling by Numbers

This evening I did a 20 mile (32 km) cycle ride after work in the heat. I was doing this cycle ride by numbers, the numbers being the cadence to now when to change gears.

I could also had heart rate information but decided against using this as do not use it during a race but based on how I am feeling and how far is left. I had a couple of bottles of water with me one having the other nuun flavour salt tablet plus a few bars if I was strugling but as I had fueled correctly during the day I only used the one bottle of drink.

The course had a few long inclines and fast sections which I completed it in just over 70 minutes making it an average of 17.4 mph (28 kmph). I am pleased with this higher than normal average and I also felt ok to continue so I will be using this in my next triathlon.
