Onerous Exercise With Headwind – BionicOldGuy

On Thursday evening I mounted my 28″ wheel again on my recumbent with a heavy responsibility tire. I needed to attempt that set-up out off-road. Yesterday I took it to Coyote Valley Open Area, Northeast of Morgan Hill, and it labored out high-quality, though I have to admit an upright bike with fats tires is healthier suited to this. I then headed up north in direction of San Jose on Santa Teresa boulevard. I used to be stunned how briskly the bike felt, theoretically it needs to be barely much less aerodynamic than my arrange with two 20″ wheels, though that is perhaps offset as a result of the 28″ rear wheel has a bit much less rolling resistance. After about 90 minutes I rotated, and located a had a extreme headwind to battle by means of to get house. So this was a fairly powerful exercise, with a median coronary heart fee of 118. However I made it house okay. Surprisingly, my common pace was 12.6 mph which is a bit larger than I’ve been doing currently. So I assume 28/20 actually is quicker. Posted on Strava right here.

Looking on Coyote Valley from the open area. It was nonetheless gloomy this early within the trip however the solar got here out later.
