A personal blog and pointer to all I find on the www about the 3 Peaks Cyclocross

GPS geekery: the scores on the doors

Readers of my personal blog will know I’m geekily into the Garmin Forerunner 305 I use for just about any exercise… I was dead excited to get it on my wrist for this year’s Three Peaks – because two years ago I didn’t have one.

The Garmin Says:
Total Distance: 36.74 miles.
Avg Speed 10.9mph (for time of 3:21:48)
Max Speed 41.8mph (down to Ingleton)
Avg Heart Rate: 168 BPM
Max Heart Rate: 181 BPM (Simon Fell)
Total Ascent / Descent: 5,970 ft.
Max speed off road, descending:
– Ingleborough: 26mph
– Whernside: 26mph
– Penyghent: 31mph

The speed vs altitude and Distance vs Altitude graphs tell a tail about how much time you spend going uphill in this race.
