    Thanks All. That took a few hours longer than I expected but at least it is done! Jono Bates - I'm in the dog house for 6 months after yesterday , so be careful :). Will, check the Analysis - Power is there but I don't have Premium so it probably doesn't come up in the usual place.

    Yeah...11,000 calories! But you weren't on the ride today. Time to take a teaspoon of cement and harden up you woos! Still, not a bad effort

    How did the indoor and outdoor compare?

  30. Gautam S.
    Gautam Sridhar

    2 Completely different things Frank. It's going to be different for everyone. For me(of all the rides I've done), out of 10, vEveresting is a 8.5, Audax 300 was a 9, Audax 400 was a 9.2 and the Outdoor Everesting was a 9.4.

    The outdoor one, you've got to contend with traffic, boredom, tiredness, constant turning, potholes,etc,etc. I was sore in places that I didn't know existed - my neck, arms, fingers, shoulders, etc. I was in serious amounts of pain through the middle kms.

    Indoor was different - yes, you are safe from traffic, yes you have ready access to hot food and toilets, yes you have ur TV but I think the boredom factor was more, my concentration waned, there was no breeze and the fan was annoying after a while. I don't remember what I actually watched to any great extent. My ass and my lower body was quite sore and the big issue was that one can't really get out of the saddle (whilst pedalling)much in the indoor one. But other parts of my body were fine.

    I think Hells500 have got it right by putting them in separate categories but I think both are difficult in their own ways.
