I took Mr. Bike out for a little 10+ mile spin today and spent the entire ride on my aero bars (well, except for the bajillion red lights I had to stop for and turning corners, of course). Holy moly, it was awesome! This is what I usually look like on my bike:
And here’s what I looked like today:
I Googled bicycle aerodynamics so I could learn all about it, but every page was like “blah blah blah science-y stuff blah blah".” Let me summarize all that in my own words: Bend over = go fast. Final stats today: 10.81 miles @ 18.4 mph, which I think is my fastest ride ever.
I’d like to compare this ride with other rides by speed or by distance, but I use Garmin Training Center and as far as I can tell, there’s no “Sort By” function. The Voomaxer app on Facebook doesn’t really sort, either. How do you store your workout stats? Do you ever go back and compare with your current fitness level??
