I jumped on the bike and rode over to Fremont to drop off a cup of coffee to the wife. It basically turned into 30 miles of endurance with a 10 mile effort at full power on my Marine View Drive loop. If I had any food in my stomach I would have lost it on the final incline. I started to get a bit of tunnel vision which I am accounting for lack of food.
Ride – 45 miles 30/ endurance 10/ power 5/ recovery
Bike – Windsor Rain Bike 46-34 x 12-25
Breakfast – hard boiled egg and a bagel
Ride Food – 2 bottles of water, 2 cliff gells
Weight – 165
It’s a bitch to sustain power on the steep downhill on Marine view drive while at the same time a little dangerous to tuck and increase speed because a few of the hidden driveways. I’m comfortable at 30-35 but will start to squeeze the brakes after that. It’s run and gun for the next two miles from false flat to super steep so it’s a huge power shift from zero to 350 to 600/700.
