Q: How can I find out my own pace level?
A: This is easy. Here's how :
- Just ride your bike, and keep track of the total miles, average riding speed, and a good guess at the total feet of climbing for that ride.
- Using this calculator, enter the distance, climbing and speed.
- If you also enter your total time, then this calculator can also calculate the riding factor.
- If you print this webpage, then the 1st page is these instructions and a 2nd page is a graph and table for keeping track of your own rides.
- After entering a few rides, then it should become very clear what pace you are riding.
- Here is a sample ridelog.
