Cycling highlight of the past week was a 90km 3-3.5 group ride from La Chambre to Briancon with Col du Télégraphe, Col du Galibier and Col du Lautaret. eBikes included. About 2700m of climbing and 10-15kph wind on our backs.
Speaking of HRM, my Wahoo has been acting up lately. Well the last few weeks riding. I put it on and the lights are flickering, then get to the bike and the head unit fired up and the pedals calibrated only to set off and notice my HRM is not working.
I had one battery go bad quickly and since replacing that I've had to unstrap and re-snap the sensor in place to get it to pair and send signal. Once that is done it works the whole ride. Even these 5 hour things I've been doing.
I put the Polar unit on my list in case I need to go for a new one.
Then I had a thought. The other day I had to replace the battery in the AirTag for one of the cats. The notes for replacement mention that bitter tasting CR2032 batteries may not be compatible with the AirTag.
Right now, I'm at a lack of fitness level that precludes strength training. I figure riding, but working at it a bit is enough. Sort of toning but on the bike. I am getting so the bike doesn't hurt so much to sit on after three hours. I figured out how to turn off the "Climb!" thing that was popping up and changing the page to a climb at odd points.
The power analysis zones say I've always been in active recovery riding most of the time, but HR zones say burning fat mostly.
Today will be a mellow short ride because I'm feeling all that riding I've been doing and I need to pull the motorcycle out of the shed and pull parts to be ready to change fluids tomorrow.
I may do another short ride Saturday to facilitate that activity then Sunday is another group ride that for me will be around 80km or so. PB&J work for my longer rides now, so good enough and cheap enough.
