Where are you riding this weekend 04/13&14 ?

Not sure yet. Probably a spin up to Mt Baldy area from my house in Fontana

Not totally sure where I'm riding, it'll just be good to actually be on the bike. Probably do some base miles on the SART saturday morning to help burn off some of the winter coat I built up and try to get my legs back. I'm finding out now that having a power meter has a dark side, as it now confirms with cold hard numbers just how much weaker I got over my lazy/busy winter.

Nice ride Loren! You are an ultra beast! I had to work this weekend, so stuck to the exercise bike

I rode the Hemet Double too; had a great time out there! Beautiful day after the early morning fog cleared.

Great job Loren. Is this your first double? Looks like you had a pretty decent pace too. 7000 calories!

That is my second now after Solvang. Just registered for Highlander Grand Tour. If I can make it I hope to also do Eastern Sierra Double and White Mountain. They are getting easier but I find them harder then one of the KOM series.
That is what Strava says but my Garmin says 15,000 calories not sure which is correct.

Garmin's magic calorie analysis works only if you're wearing a HR strap (or have a power meter), otherwise it's off in fantasy land.

A really rough rule of thumb for calorie calculation is that you can take your average wattage, multiply by 4 (since we're about 25% efficient at converting energy to bicycle crank effort), and multiply that by how many hours you pedaled In your case, at that speed and that course, 150w seems about right. 150 x 4 = 600, and 600 x 12.66hours = 7600 calories. Not very far off from Strava's *very rough* guess.

Your cycling schedule seems pretty impressive dude. You should come out to the Death Valley fall double if you've not tried it. DV has gotta be one of the best places to ride a bike.

I rode Solvang Double with a power meter and it reported 5500 kJ of work, which would be 6000 calories, give or take.

You are bigger (looks like you have 200+ lbs in your profile on Strava, which has to be wrong, but you are still bigger than me), so 7000 is plausible.

Mulholland Challenge took 4690 kJ of work.

LOL I am 212lbs I do want to ride in Death Valley and I have come to the conclusion you really do need sleep after these doubles so I will look into that. I was lucky Hemet was only an hour from my house.
