    Me too. When I first got my 500 I wasn't expecting it to be as useful for navigation as it is. Just wish the VP could be turned off.

    I didn't think that was an option on a 200 or 500. How do you load it as a route?

    Then you wouldn't be following the course.

    I am assuming the OP would like to follow a course, but doesn't want the VP to be there too. But as others have said, this is not possible on the 500. ...

    Mr. Weinrib,

    In the other thread you mentioned competition. If that means on the road, get a road race bike, not a cross bike. If that means Cx, get a Cx bike. Really, it's not that complicated....

    We rode it again yesterday. Kicked my butt pretty good even though we rode a slightly shorter and easier version of it. But it was a good day nonetheless, and we had almost perfect weather. I...

    Sounds like either bike would work fine.

    If/when you make it up this way, I suggest that you let Unter and I know. We can offer additional ride advice and such. And perhaps join you if you are...

    Consider how flat the CP curve is in the region beyond hours. That only distorts things by a small amount, perhaps 10%. At least that's what my data shows, anyways. It's possible your FTP could be...

    Hmmm.

    My own personal power data from a couple 200Ks, a 12 hr race, and a bazzillion training rides suggests that my ultramarathon limit is at around 60% of FTP. And that's if I am highly...

    If you haven't been doing any speedwork up till now, I think you can actually get some benefit in weeks 3 and 2. Two interval workouts per week. Don't do any such rides in the week before the big...

    +1. First time I ever had it work was this past Saturday. Before, my 500 would always produce a corrupted file anytime I tried using it on a 300K or longer. I don't know why, other than to say it...

    Why not? Because I would not be ending the (bike) ride where I want to end it.

    Yeah, this proposed ride is the equivalent of doing a 1200K grand randonee. A person capable of doing that sort of ride would not likley be writing what is being written here.

    Because then the ride would be ending in Newark, which would be pretty lame. I am not worried about riding up a couple hundred feet to the bridge. The route has 25,000 feet of climbing, after all. ...
