Today, I got to see my starting point in terms of how much power I can produce during my bike ride. It sort of like how many light bulbs can I light up. So my average was 204 and my Functional Threshold Power was 193 based on my Age and Weight. Based on that I can light 3 light bulbs!
To get those numbers, I rode my bike around the loop at Hecksher State Park. It about a 4 mile loop which is fairly flat, however the wind coming off the bad can be very wild. And it was that day!
So the Power Meter that I opted for was the Stages Power Meter. The one that fit my bike was the FSA left side crank. It fit budget and I wanted to swap out my wheels at any time. The drawback is that I don't have numbers for each leg. Stages uses an average of the legs.
The great thing is that the Meter is compatible with my Garmin 910XT Training Watch.
I am so excited to see how my perceived power compares to my actual power. Stay tune for those numbers to increase!
