just glad it happened so fast I didn't have time to put an arm out and break a wrist/ collarbone
Independent review into British Cycling's culture is out.
hey @plasticnicola how long does the battery last in a wahoo bolt if you're using the maps? you reckon it'll get you round your 200km ride alright?
pretty sure yes -- the longest ride I have used it for is 140km (/8 hours constant on, don't think you can turn off and then resume like the garmins) and I'm sure it had 50%(ish) of battery left???
though I have a lil battery pack I will take just in case
i have a wee battery pack too, was trying to figure out whether to take it or not. think it will last, the battery life has been pretty great so far.
my original Wahoo lasted for a 200K over 10 hours (including stops on garage forecourts to eat scampi fries and peperamis) still had about 20% left
I haven't really noticed a significant decline in battery when using maps compared to not using maps tbh. The TBT directions are great if you've got cues on the GPX file by the way, I tend to leave the screen on one of the data pages and it tells you when you need to turn about 250m before a junction.
did you have the map on at the time? using the maps on my garmin would shaft the battery pretty quickly, doesn't seem to affect the wahooooo as much
yeah - pretty much
I've struggled with this - TBT only seems to happen if I've created the route myself from scratch using Ride with GPS, if I take someone else's route from there, nothing. Am I missing something?
Nope. It's a bug. Apparently it will be fixed in the July update (p. exciting!!!).
Actually: the route has to have cues, I think, for TBT directions to work. There is a bug where if you use the app on yr phone to route you somewhere midride it doesn't tell you when to turn, and also routes from Strava don't work with TBT directions. That's where the bugs are.
This e-mail just arrived from CTT. Imagine being this fucking petty over a 200x200 image
I bloody love being a nerd so much
I'm a fair bit out of shape, but I really enjoyed that ride
My mates son is 14/15, and pushing out 21:18 10 mile TTs. This is an open course with all ages represented. He finished 3rd (number 18).
2nd in the northern division U16 league currently. Bastard.
Can he do it hungover though?
