    Not my experience nor the experience of anyone I've ever seen riding in the rain. Must have been a light rain. Or maybe you have 'magic' tires.

    More important than your HR is how did it feel? If it felt easier go a little harder in your next session. There's no benefit from your HR being lower if you can't put out any extra power.

    or probably a little less.
    How good is your position on the bike? Being able to ride with a flat back will likely net you a bigger improvement than the combined effect of the changes you mentioned.

    Sustaining a high level of output over many hours is an oxymoron. The study I linked clearly found the ketogenic diet resulted in reduced maximum power output.

    I don't need to eat any carbs during long rides either. That doesn't mean my body isn't burning any. My understanding is that being on a ketogenic diet significantly increases fat oxidation during...

    When riding close to your 1hr threshold power, virtually all the energy is coming from carbohydrates. If you're doing long endurance rides fat contributes a significant portion.

    We shall, but the US federal law is pretty clear that the 20mph limit is only applicable when 'solely powered by a motor' with a 170lb rider. Local jurisdictions may have additional laws but these...

    Do you seriously think anyone gives a **** about your results whether racing in a USAC race or Strava?
