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! :-)

    TransRussia medal
    It s too difficult to understand, why is a men done in a white color?May be the 
    keyword is a ТРАНС?
    :-))) -changing in the state of mind and body from ...the intense cycling!!! Берегите себя! Put us (your s funs) up to date!!! May be the first stage-the green colour, the second-yellow, and... (...nobody knows...)
    So be carefull!!!

      :-) 
      Yes, dear Marbess, a good question!  Why the body of the cyclist is in a white color? 

      From my view, the body of the cyclist is white, because the body on the long distance is relatively insignificant. 
      To master TransRussia, a well-trained body is a condition, but is absolut not sufficient! 
      Substantially more importantly than the body is the spirit! 
      This long distance is to master only with the spirit. The spirit must raise the necessary willpower to force the body and to suppress tiredness, weakness and pains. So the spirit must hold the body in a transcendent state :-) 
      Thus the word ТРАНС is more important than the body itself. 
      Дух торжествует над телом!  :-)))

    Conceptual design
    you invented such picture for tires! super!
    • Manfred Premium user Germany (Private)
      9 years 6 months ago
      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
        • Manfred Premium user Germany (Private)
          9 years 6 months ago
          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 :-|
          • Елена Premium user (Private)
            9 years 6 months ago
            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. 
              • Елена Premium user (Private)
                9 years 6 months ago
                you have good instrument! ... your heart beats very quick
                • Manfred Premium user Germany (Private)
                  9 years 6 months ago
                  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 :-))

    The route - from the White Sea to the Black Sea
    Next year will you cycling in Russia,  Manfred???)))
    • Manfred Premium user Germany (Private)
      10 years 3 months ago
      Yes, TransRussia is my target for the next year.
      For the long distance, I will need a well trained body. If I will not become ill or if I will not have an another accident, the ride seems doable for me.  
      We will see, how it goes on.  :-))
