Early Birds flying South

Sunday -- back to the normal routine. Leaving by 6:35 towards Manorville, easy pace. Quite a well sized group gathered for the ride -- Py figured South it will be -- nice.


GAP Mike, but no one else today. Few strong riders, few of the new road dudes from RP cycles. T had to catch up with the bathroom late... so we waited while a sub group already rolled out -- they would be our prey to catch o-] They got about good full 5 minutes head start... Just as Py took a good move in front the early starters came into sight on South Country Rd -- he kept moving but his pass by and sit in of some riders caused a little disruption of the flight... and reorganization took a moment. As usual a fast pace on Dune Road and over the bridge. A short lasting reassembly and rolling again just little bit easier until hitting Newton Road and the chase of a single rider not waiting for a few behind stuck in traffic was on again. This whole lap (#5 on my garmin data) including the slower start averaged at 42.2km/h or 252 Watts XPower ending with quite a full speed ahead at the famous (?!?!? some claim it it one of the most busiest ?!?!?) Seven-Eleven out here. No so bad Sunday morning.


Only at these hot days Py need to get in, but today he opted for a coffee and a big bottle of cold water. Thx Mike!

Here is a plot of the work Py has done today -- the black line -- sitting just there near critical power in the 250 Watts range for about one full hour -- readings of sustained 350 Watts 30 sec avg for quite often -- even on 5th wheel....


... and finally rolling back not much slower. Great ride. Easy home, but yes, not skipping the little hills on North Country and even adding the WRDK -- you still not figured it (see ** below)?


Fast finish just on 2nd wheel to parking.
