  This morning I woke up a bit tired but I decided to go for my Beechwood Dr hill repeats. It's been a while since I haven't done it, so I wasn't sure how it was going to go, anyway... I go to the Don Valley trail heading to Beachwood and I started…

Yes, I know it's cold outside, but what about the trainer or rollers? If he could do it with only one arm and one leg, what's your excuse?

Oh, and I ordered mine through Duke's, but I think you can do it online yourself if you want.

Hi Marco, I love it.  I have the Durace9000 Stages crank. The shifting is so much smoother, esp with the Ultegra Di2.  If you want a power meter, this is the most elegant and simple way to go.  The data tracking is good. and from all the research I did online, it seems that it's within +or - 1 or 2% accuracy to a hub power meter.  It certainly looks better than the huge Garmin pedal meters.  The meter is mounted on the left side, so the system "calculates" the right side. It's not like have a dual meter, but close enough for my needs.  Hope that helps.

Wow, good on you.  My ride was great. I was in the first group when you guys dropped back (unbeknownst to me). The pace was high and the more experienced riders tried their best to keep an organized rotating paceline.  I was running out of steam on the 1st return loop near Eglinton, and was cut off, by a non BCC rider, then the next thing you know it I was dropped off the back. Which, as it turns out, was a good thing. After I passed you, I caught up to the group post crash. Was a fair amount of riders down, but only a couple BBC'rs. Prior to that the group was being infiltrated by other riders looking to be paced around the course. It made me a bit nervous as several of them were half-wheeling and failing to shout out cues, etc. Combined with the rain and the face pace, I was glad to be dropped. I caught a rest, ate, and then was delighted to ride home with an awesome crew of fellow BBC'ers!  75k in 2:35, on a very wet sunday. I honestly couldn't have had more fun! Glad to hear you got home safe. Look forward to seeing the stats.

Marco!! After the start I only saw you in passing! How was your ride?

At 2:56pm on May 31, 2013, Jared Kuemper said…

LOL! Tell me about it. This early start on the Ride for Heart, may just give me a heart attack.  I picked up my ride tags today, I could have grabbed yours too. Sorry.

Sweet! We are meeting at the Tim Hortons @ Lakeshore and Leslie at 5am (yikes). I'm going in the Dan speed group. I don't think I'll be able to hang on with the uber-fast crew. ;)
