TR2012 - Planning

TransRussia - there is still an increase of madness possible! :o)
For the year 2012 Manfred's cycling friend, the extreme-sportsman Alexey Boldarev, offered a new immense challenge:
A bicycle race over a distance of 3,000 kms!
The racing led across all climate zones of the northern half of the earth.
Manfred took part in this long-distance racing. It should be a hard test of the physical limits ...and should be adventure pure! :-)

      Ooooops!  :-D
      I did a mistake! I will correct the word "Транс"!

      Yes, the wheel cover should improve the aerodynamic.  :o) 
      An old, weak man needs all tricks to master the long distance.  :o)))

        :))) wheels will be very beautiful!
         
         ... and very need - to do big 2 mirrors ...
        to see behind bike - cars and drivers ...
        and to see ahead bike - big holes on road

          Yes, the couch has 2 big mirrors  :-)
           
          ...but direct before the front wheel, holes of the road cover are not so good visible than by a MTB :-|

            Super-mirrors!!! ... holes - it is not so terribly as drivers in cars ...
            What is it - a little ... near navigator ?

              The little right instrument indicates, whether I am still alive. :o) 
              If my heart still beats, it shows the number of heart-beats per minute.  :-))  
              Actual my heart beats 125 times per minute.

                you have good instrument! ... your heart beats very quick
                • Manfred Premium user Germany (Private)

                  By the number of heart-beats you can estimate the actual mechanical power. 
                  My resting heart rate is 52. My maximum heart rate is 150. 
                  So in the moment my actual mechanical power is
                  (125-52)/(150-52)= ~0,74 of my maximum mechanical power. 
                  A steady value of 75% of the maximum power is a good value for long distances :-))
