So I got a new Kestrel Evoke from Bikes Direct a little over 2 weeks. I have been able to ride 6 times as of today.
I downloaded Strava on my iphone but really don't know how to use it but when I looked at it today it said I was 4th on a segment that is part of my ride. I never would have thought I would have been towards the top of any of these things especially with a section that starts and ends uphill. I am skeptical that my numbers were even remotely competitive with anyone. Does this sound possible? FYI I am 46, 6'2" and 268 pounds. I also had a widow maker heart attack in May 2010. I am trying to loose weight and have fun.
This is what it said.
