I just wanted to know the average everyone does in here, the more posts the better !! Reading in another post in the Cramps thread by cyclocommuter brought this point up for me...
So things, i think could be useful for me, and any other newbies to touring out there are :
On a long distance, fully loaded tour:
Whats your overall average speed?
Whats your avg on steep uphills? (gradient dunno, i just want to see the difference)
Do you tend to push for more speed on downhills or let her roll for a rest ??
I know these questions have a huge varience in answers, but if you back up your speed with reasons, i could probably learn something from it!!
The other point was breaks:
how long do you guys cycle each day on a tour?
How long do you stop for breaks ?
Um... and Cadence. My girl was looking at some computers that had this included in the package (was going to be polar, but they are not Mac compatible! )... any opinions on the usefullness of Cadence ??
Lots of questions!!
