Hi all, there are a number of us planning a bike ride from Paris to Nottingham in July this year, I have just started to get fit for the ride, previously very lazy and weigh in at 175lb.
I road cycled a number of times (10 miles each time) and felt fine, I then purchased endomondo to monitor my progress and later purchased at HRM which scared the hell out of me on Sunday.
I did a 20 mile route which had a bit of a steep climb and my heart raced climbed to 199, I was knacked at the top but felt fine.. My question is 199 dangerous and will it get better..
I'm 46, I have done the calculation 220 - 46 and it turns out I should be 174.
Thanks for reading
