Century and 2x60 Tempo
Great day to ride a century and get in the 2x60 tempos. The first effort, divided into two 30 minute efforts with 3 minutes between so I could get through New Richmond, were both at 290 watts. The second effort, non-stop to Ripley after 10 minutes riding easy after the second 30 minute was at 270. Legs were pretty tired. Average power for the 50 miles was 260 and normalized at 280. The ride home was actually faster that the ride out with the wind behind me. I was 2:35 out and 2:30 back for 5:05 for the 101 miles. Average for the entire ride was 230. On the way back I stopped to look through the spotting scope of a woman on the side of the road. She was looking an bald eagle with three young eagles in a huge nest off SR 52. Amazing! Headed back tomorrow with my telephoto.
