I took my recumbent with my new and improved drivetrain for a 3-hour plus cruise at present. 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 fee of 115. This was a very good 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 velocity and coronary heart fee on the principle display. Wanting on the velocity too usually distracted me from “meditation in movement”. Subsequent time I do an analogous trip I’ll use time and coronary heart fee as my most important display, not look as usually, and simply deal with being current and having fun with the trip.
