The 40km Project Part XVI

This entry is part 16 of 16 in the series The 40km Project

Well, I am back to report on the somewhat dormant 40km Project. While planning out my 2013 ride schedule, I checked out the Almonte Bicycle Club calendar to see when the monthly 40km Calabogie TTs were. I noticed, to my dismay, that there was only one TT in Calabogie, and the rest were on a […]

The 40km Project Part XV – Power Analysis

This entry is part 15 of 16 in the series The 40km Project

In Part XIV, I promised a more detailed power analysis of the Heckston TT. Here it is!

This entry is part 12 of 16 in the series The 40km Project

OK, this is getting ridiculous! Both the lack of posting on this blog, and the fact that the 40km project is still ongoing.  On June 3, I rode the first of the ABC 40km TTs for 2012. I didn’t break the hour mark. In fact, I wasn’t even close–finishing in 1:02:45. Considering that my best […]
