    1,2,3,4,9.

    Not bad, but subtract fifty points for my transfers and you end up with a far more modest score. Still, no changes tomorrow.

  • Garmin Forerunner 10 on-bike accuracy1 year 10 weeks agoI've got the Forerunner 910xt

    I've got the Forerunner 910xt for triathlon, which would probably be a bit much for what you need it for - unless you swim regularly and want to record that too. It's multisport so you can switch between modes (and you can set it to switch automatically during a race).

    It's not great for getting lost and finding your way home but it's good for recording and seems to be accurate. And it has a bike mount which I quite like - you can put it on the bars and the take it off and attach to a wrist-strap to use it like a watch. (It is actually the size of my wrist so you wouldn't catch me rocking it day-to-day though)

    Cav does seem pretty fired up after yesterday, might go as far to say he seems pissed off.

    He's my bet for today.

    Hoping for better today after going Quintana rather than Kwia yesterday. Still about 200 off the lead. This is where we all piss enrique off. No tinkering. Want 1 for Sat. 5 for Sun.

    Bet Cav will win. First time he's been first at the IM for a long time.

    The 'poor creature' that was trying to KILL him? Keep going for how long? Maybe you are superman but not everyone can outrun a wolf.


    If he was far enough ahead to stop and get out the bear spray, he had already outrun the wolf. Wolves are pack animals. The "Lone Wolf" though much loved in popular culture, is usually alone because it can no longer keep up with the pack. This one, as has been said, was probably old or sick, and easily outrun. (It could of course, have been a large Dog, in which case I suspend my usual love of Animals, and recommend the excellent Richard Ballantine.)

  • Garmin Forerunner 10 on-bike accuracy1 year 10 weeks agoI've recently gone for the

    I've recently gone for the Garmin Edge 500 but before that used Mrs Biggins' Forerunner 110. I also had a Cateye Velo for speed/cadence on the bike and the distance on the Cateye (and on my friend's Cateye when we were riding together) always tallied with the distance on the Forerunner. I wouldn't have any concerns on the accuracy front.

    I don't have any idea about uploading .gpx files I'm afraid. My guess with the Forerunner 10 would be no but that's just a guess. You could try contacting Garmin who are usually quite helpful.

    A lad at work has the Garmin Forerunner attached to his bike and he has said that the gps function is absolutely brilliant, getting down to within 15ft of where he is.

    He highly recommends them but a bit to pricey for me.

    He only has to outcycle the wolf. The water sounds like a good idea though.

    Due to our superior ability to deal with heat (dogs have to pant) humans have better endurance that most other animals. In fact, when bikes were first created there were a lot of cyclist vs. horse competitions. Once you got to the 2hr mark of exercise the horse would normally succumb to exhaustion (in fact the time/distance may even be less).
