Thanks again for the tips, all. Set it up earlier in the week, tested it today on Okemo. good stuff.

Give yourself a couple of weeks to just ride/train/race however you normally do so, and start analyzing that data. This will allow you to become familiar with the tools (e.g. GC, WKO, whatever) as...

in case some data might help others, here's my PMC from May 1st. I didn't have a good spring, either, so by May 1st I'd dropped my FTP to 260w. Note this was a very rough estimate just based on...

I had a similar case recently, with minimal riding in May, then nearly zero riding in June + July. With leg/hip issues, my suggestion is to err on the low side, to avoid going too deep too soon. As...

as shovel said. Specifically for me, I end up use it when it's been a while (too long) since I've done an FTP test or any long interval. If my HR is too low then I know I'm going too easy. HR's...

I remember the cadence data from my powertap being pretty sketchy. Granted it's been a few years. I think it's pretty different, anyway, since the PT's accelerometer isn't directly measuring crank...

Aha! Thanks very much, I'd missed that option somehow. London's our destination for a few days, then we'll be heading west to the Bath area - I haven't started researching that leg yet, though :)

I love those wheels. As training wheels they've been rock solid for me for years. I've even used 'em off road with 'cross tires a few times.

Does anyone have firsthand experience bringing a large bicycle bag (like an Evoc, which measures 135 x 80 x 38cm) on a Eurostar train, between Paris and London?

Eurostar's website tells me that...

That's awesome, thanks for posting your experience. Do you speak spanish and if not, is it much of a problem? I'd guess having a friend to stay with makes a big difference.

compared to the early season prospect park/central park races, and especially as a cat 5, the trip to Bethel is worth it IMO.
