I was late leaving my house. I arrived at the ride start a few minutes after they had rolled.   So  me and another rider, Matt, chased to catch the group.  I had to chase almost 27 miles.  Basically, I chased from my home in Huntington Beach to the start,19 miles, and then another 8 miles into their ride.  In the graph above you see my best 60 mins of the day and yes it turned out to be all the chasing I had to do JUST to get to the ride.

Because I'm an Ultra cyclist I find it interesting that many of my best 60 minutes of power are without the group on the group rides.  It just goes to show there is a lot of drafting going on in the pack and that I need to be careful not to get spoiled since I can't draft in many of my Ultra races.  I would like to just sit out front and ride tempo the whole ride and see what type of numbers I come home with as a comparison.  


  1. Amazing work George. Sometime, could you give a description of your stats? Some of it I don't understand. Thanks.
    Dave in Iowa.

  2. Dave thank you for reading my blog.

    I would be glad to give an explanation of my stats. Why don't you begin asking the questions and I will begin the explaining. ;)

    I've been working with a power meter for so long I forget that some people out there don't know what the heck I'm talking about.

  3. Hi George, here's some questions, o, and thanks.

    Work: 715 kJ <--What is that?
    TSS: 71 (intensity factor 0.842) <--?
    Norm Power: 232 (3.43 w/kg)
    VI: 1.17 <---What is that?
    Pw:HR: -13.49% <--What is that?
    Pa:HR: 1.36% <--What is that?

    What equipment do you use to get this information?

    Again I appreciate, I like data, my occupation as a technician constantly requires me to review and maintain accuracy of data.


  4. Dave,

    I will get you answers to your questions in the next couple of days. I have a busy fun filled weekend with my son. But I will find some time to get it done.


  5. Thanks, please no hurry, I appreciate.
