Exactly. 200W for 60min equals 200W for 60 min, regardless of the bike you're riding. How that effort gets translated to speed and distance varies with a lot of factors. One of them being the...

This is a fair point. Fast to Kenny Kruiser may be very moderate to me, but fast to me is a comfortable tempo to Peter Sagan. However, fast is still fun, no matter that "fast" means to you. Going...

I don't think you're quite getting it. It has nothing to do with whether or not I have a power meter on my bike. Output watts exist regardless of whether they are being measured directly or not.

I have found that, as my fitness increases, my tolerance for suffering also improves, and I'm able to (and do) work at my limits for a longer duration. From that, I conclude that cycling actually...

How is 250W on a light bike easier than 250W on a heavy bike? The human effort is the same.

For me, doing a road ride, my windows of time are not precise down to exact minutes. However, if the choice of bike made a 15+ minute difference, I might alter my route if I had time limitations on...

Because life's demands on my time, my rides tend to be somewhat time based. On the trainer, it's usually a very specific time. On the road, I pick routes that incorporate the kind of effort I want...

In your example, the riders would also have to be perfectly matched for size, weight, and fitness level. A friend that I ride with sometimes is taller, heavier, and significantly more fit than me. ...

The amount of "work" (amount of effort for a given time) is unrelated to the weight or quality of the bike. How far/fast you travel for that "work" will vary with the weight/quality of the bike. You...
