Tacx Magic

Tonight, was an indoor session. 60 minutes on the Tacx and 15 minutes on the treadmill. I discovered Tacx Magic.

I had previously adjusted the tension on the roller so that Guylaine could use her bike on it, when I put my bike back on tonight, I must not have tightened the roller to my wheel as much as before.

Instead of 180 Watts, I was pushing 250 Watts at the same heart rate.

It reported approximately 35km/hr, which seems a tad optimistic for tonights effort - perhaps more like 32km/hr... so maybe I just need to tighten a little, wee bit.

Or hopefully, I'll never need to use it again this summer.
