while iI have never truly been a cyclist, I, spent a lot of time as a young adult on a bike. When I was 18 I would ride about 20 miles a day to either fly model airplanes , or fish. Both locations were 9 or 10 mile trips from home.
So i'm wondering where most cyclists tend so place there gearing as they ride their Rambler. My area is fairly flat. Though MYR tells me my altitue varies by almost 100 ft..
I find when I am going into the wind I usually am around the small front bgeasr and 3 or 4 on the rear. When I get to go the opposite I am comfortabe on the middle front gear and 7 or 8 on the rear.
It was also hotter than it has been here.
MYR= map your ride
