I Finally Did It !!!!
When I got my Quest XS I was told it takes about 1000 miles to get your Velomobile legs. And I soon discovered I was using different muscles than I did on my recumbents. But I slowly got faster as time went on. Now I am so much faster than the other groups I ride with. I just go along to enjoy the company. It's when I ride by myself that I get to push myself. Every day I do some Special High Intensity Training. (S.H.I.T.). On one stretch of flat road I do it and my maximum speed get faster. My goal was to hit 60 kph on that (S.H.I.T.). This week I hit 67 kph. Now after hitting that speed my legs felt like butter the rest of the way home. The conditions were no wind and 32C. and no tour cap. I am now going to push for 70 kph but that might require more (S.H.I.T.) and the tour cap. Most people that see me think I have an electric motor because of the speed I am now going. They are quite surprised to find out I am the motor. My afternoon/evening route has lots of stops so the average speed is not as good as my morning commute. But Now I can say my commute is lots of FUN!
