Journal - Ride 100, Record Breaking

Short Description About Today

  1. 60Km Time Trial @ 38.11km/h average speed
  2. Record breaking (?)



In somewhat of a bad and EPIC way!

Pounding away for 2 hours nonstop at speeds varying from 31km/h to 55km/h constantly with just 500ml of electrolyte-infused water along with the casual headwinds, is to say the least, neck-breaking (almost literally) due to the simple fact that the aero-position on time trial bikes isn't that comfortable.

Well, I guess my 100th Blog Post had to be something special, although it wasn't the long coming 200km ride, it was something else...something as equally as painful, I'm sure.

New things to come very soon!

Synopsis of the ride

At first, t'was just a humble and modest 9-10km of riding around in Qala road whilst waiting for Iron Mike to arrive in order to start the monstrous interval which was to follow. That interval turned out to be a 60km fully-fledged, all out interval. There's not much to say about it, due to the fact that it was just going in laps from Qala to Ghajnsielem for 60km whilst maintaining an average speed of 38.11 km/h. 

Iron Mike's Garmin-buddy


Achieving my fastest time ever for a 60km ride in just 1 hour 35 minutes!

In the end, I finished at 71km with a time of 1 hour 59 minutes and surprisingly also with 450 meters of elevation! Where did that elevation come from ?!

All thanks to Iron Mike, the aero-space red rocket (my Cervelo P5 bike), the road itself and the trusty aerodynamic bottle!


Truly an Epic Ride
