Power and Analytics


AnalyticCyclingLogoI recently discovered the site called Analytic Cycling within it, there are various OCD inducing calculators to help you determine what your figures need to be to achieve certain goals. For example, I was able to find out what my power output needs to be to achieve a certain speed depending on various ‘realistic’ assumption around air drag and the like. Quite useful actually. Additionally, I was able to determine how much weight I needed to lose to affect my climbing speed. Answer = no more Indian take out.

Anyway, to give you a good idea of what power outputs can be, this wikipedia entry is quite useful.. I think I’m at 3.3 watts / kg for sustained efforts (20min) vs a sprint (no idea what the figure would be).
