Third rule of Bike Club: someone yells "stop!", goes limp, taps out, ride away from them as fast as you can.
Who is this Ted King guy? Strolls into Agoura Hills and takes all the KOMs on Strava away from the local climbing monsters. Funny.
That's some significant vert!
Darn pros :p
There are climbers in SoCal?! I thought you guys just raced flat crits :p.
i feel like that's an amazing cadence for all that elevation...your thoughts?
KOM on latigo to piuma is baller
@Jayne, no it doesn't strike me as impressive. You spin some, grind some, then overall you almost always end up somewhere in the mid-80s all said and done.
yeah...if you're Ted King.
Glad to see you in our hood. Have you met my buddy Joe Keays?
This is the ride I would have loved to do IF I didn't have to work today. Maybe I should talk to my kids about cutting down on food so I can take Mondays off. SOLID- (Along came Polly French Scuba Instructor in Speedos)
Strava needs to add a "Super Mega Ultra King Kudos" option just for you Ted!
Even though I'm ultra slow in comparison we should ride some time man!
I agree with Michael Johnson, "Super Mega Ultra King Kudos". He's the BEST.
“Man, I see in fight (bike) club the strongest and smartest men who've ever lived"
going good there ted
Ted, I'm sure you've been asked this many times, but what's your average heart rate and calorie burn on a training ride like this?
Nearly 1,000 cal/hr. I think I came home with like 265w average so like 5,600 delicious calories. WATTS.
Standard ride in Malibu
Man, you're going to need to eat something really delicious to replenish those digits.
Another heck of a ride Ted. Can't wait to see you put this training to the test in your races this year. Hate to be a pest but really curious... what/how much do you eat on a ride like that to stay fueled?
Is making 1296W while sprinting your ass off good?
@John W., all depends on the day, your mood, your hunger, the intensity, etc. Today I had the Teddy oatmeal with egg, microwaved with some raisins and maple syrup - probably 600 calories all said and done. Plus coffee, naturally. On the ride it was...
...2 bars plus 1 stop at the local proper coffee shop for an Americano. I arrived home peckish, but I still had energy nearly the whole ride. Probably hungry towards the end but I plowed through that knowing recovery lunch was on the other side.
@Connor, from a non sprinter, YES.
Had to get that maple syrup plug in there eh? Seriously though, thanks for sharing your thoughts/answers with us wannabe's - shows a lot of class. And no wonder you guys are so svelte. 6hrs and over 11,000ft of climbing on a 600 cal breakfast and a few bars is impressive.
My lunch followed almost immediately by dinner was more reasonable. Or humane.
First rule of Street Countdown, is that you really must try and tell as many people as possible about it. It's a rather fun game, and the more people you tell about it the better.
I wish you domination and good times for the upcoming season, Ted!
best of luck this season, and happy training in the santa monicas this month!
and the second rule???
I hope to "borrow" your phrasing about bike club and the second rule of bike club is to ride your bike. Hope to see you again this year (esp. cross vegas again!)
Rule # 2: You do not talk about Fight Club.
Tee-hee, that's just Strava's estimate so I'm not sure how accurate it is. I'm a clidesdale so putting my body weight into it helps. That and leg-pressing 1,000lb.
