Watt PB

On the Wattbike
Me about to pedal furiously

The Wattbike was out again for the Student Welcome Fair at The University of Manchester. I swear that thing is like a magnet. I tried to resist it… I didn’t feel great. I had silly shoes on. I couldn’t remember what I had done last time. Joni Purmonen had set the top output – over 1450w. Going to the gym and pushing weights clearly pays off.

Still ten minutes later I’m back on it. I ripped my foot out of the toeclips on the first start, managed to get the power down second time around. Previous attempts have seen me hit 1210w, 1311w & 1381w. I managed 1386w this time. Enough for 3rd place on the board. I wouldn’t mind having a go on one of these now with some proper biking gear and pedals on…
