Erm.. I Made a Mistake.

19 Jul 2007 at 14:09

Apparently in May 2006 I incorrectly recorded a Road ride of 40 miles. It was reported as an offroad ride. It's all fixed now and nothing really changed apart from a slight change in % of ride types.

Today's ride was rubbish, my tyres were sliding all over the place, the air was really resistant and noisy, my legs were knackered and my bike was feeling all /soggy/. 51 miles, not great.

Thank goodness we've cleared that up :)
BTW Am I missing out on any MattStalk material by not clicking the Login button?


15:44 19 Jul

Nope, I've written approximately nothing in there :)

i did discover today that my GPS recorded .9miles more over 50miles then the cycle computer, so I might have ridden 40miles more this year than recorded.. I'm considering getting a road gps, but I am waiting for simon to access his new Edge 205 GPS unit.

I expect he's out there right now making mileage..

Some of us never worked out what the mysterious password was anyway.

I nearly bought an Edge 205 a couple of days ago, but managed to resist.


16:41 19 Jul

Resistance is futile. I think I will probably get one so I can throw it in my jersey for when the pompino is built, and as my computer drowned yesterday I need something, and I've gone though 2 sigma computers in 6,000 miles.

The password was JAFFACAKE (I think)

Anyway I have to write a login thingy for Cyclove so I guess I'll do it properly.

It needed a space inbetweem jaffa and cake


16:48 19 Jul

I'll need a new computer at some point, mainly because my HID lamp stops the Cateye wireless ones working.


17:04 19 Jul

My Edge 205 worked really well today, even in the trees at Llandegla. Bargain @ GBP75 :)


17:13 19 Jul

OO Away Day!
I'll give it some more rides before I commit, I have to concentrate on fixing old stuff before I buy new stuff.

According to the data downloaded to the garmin training software, I did 2364m of climbing and burned 4054 Calories! Bonkers. Memory Map says 900m climbing :)


19:19 19 Jul

Those calorie calculations are rubbish IME.

I'd believe MM more than GPS for altitude


19:28 19 Jul

Yeah, I always use MM for altitude. No idea how it calculates calories, surely it needs HR data?

Just been playing around with the 205 to customise the display and it picked up a GPS signal in my lounge. Cool.

They normally used an assumed figure for a type of excercise which you program in so not so hot really.
