As we speak I used to be striving for a brisk journey in “zone 2” which is coronary heart charge round 110-120 for me. I went as much as South San Jose and again on my recumbent at a median hr of 112 so hit my goal fairly effectively. It was unexpectedly raining (flippantly) for concerning the first hour then cleared up on the best way again. I posted the journey on Strava right here. I additionally did a brief journey within the afternoon to a health care provider’s appointment on my upright e-bike which I exploit for utility functions as a result of it’s simpler to lock.

My solely drawback was a flat in direction of the tip of my morning journey. I used to be in a position to limp house with out fixing it as a result of it was a sluggish leak, however I did should cease to repump it 4 instances. Sudden higher physique exercise! I’ve had a whole lot of bother with the entrance tire on my recumbent, it’s much less strong than the one on the rear (a Schwalbe “marathon plus” which has their highest puncture safety). So I ordered one other marathon plus for the entrance after I obtained house. These have extra rolling resistance which can sluggish me down a bit, nevertheless it’s superb how little that begins to matter whenever you’ve skilled a number of punctures- reliability is extra essential than efficiency!
