Getting the hang of it... Bike Power that is

With my new Tacx Toy, I have a learned appreciation for the Power-Heart Rate-Cadence-Speed conspiracy.

Reporting distance and speed is now meaningless, without Power.

Tonight I was fooling around, and went full out power 240+ Watts for a speed of about 30km/hr @ 100 RPM, and then no-resistance for speeds of 40+km/hr at 170 Watts with 80 RPM.

I will continue to log speed and distance, if only to satisfy my own ego.
