cycle 1:15:00 [5] 35.0 km (2:09 / km)
shoes: Avanti Blade

120km today, but we had 5 riders. Stints were even shorter but were absolutely flat out. I got lumped with progressively more of the riding as the other guys got tired and their stints got shorter. Also got used out of rotation a few times to hammer the steep hills and ride more of the gravel.
Team ended up 2nd (of 5) in our category. We would have been roughly midfield if we'd done an optional extra session yesterday.

Great fun, and the format really suited a bunch of guys who had done very little training of any significance.

More people trying to talk me into getting an actual road bike now, claiming it will make me super fast. Given that is my first road bike race ever (to go with a lifetime total of about 3 little triathlons) I'm not feeling the urge super strongly just yet.

cycle race 1:15:00 intensity: (15:00 @1) + (1:00:00 @4) 36.0 km (2:05 / km)
shoes: Avanti Blade

Day 1 of Wild West Bike tour. 93km of riding, split between 4 riders.
Took a while to get into the swing of riding short bursts in a relay, essentially needing to go flat out from the first pedal stroke each time. Rode more than my share, but didn't bother going in the 26km individual glory race at the end of the day.
Awesome weather for it, and really good fun.

Time and distance approx (and includes a cooldown afterwards).
