I took my recumbent with my new and improved drivetrain for a 3-hour plus cruise right now. What a distinction a non-squeaky and non-rattling chain makes! After a warmup, I averaged 14.7 mph for two hr 27 minutes at a mean coronary heart charge of 115. This was a superb tempo. The one mistake I made was I had my Garmin GPS watch in “bike mode”, which I’ve set as much as present present pace and coronary heart charge on the principle display screen. Wanting on the pace too usually distracted me from “meditation in movement”. Subsequent time I do the same journey I’ll use time and coronary heart charge as my important display screen, not look as usually, and simply deal with being current and having fun with the journey.
