Blast!! I missed this!
Only just seen the post... Might have been interesting on Ivinghoe Beacon but I think I'd have wanted to  it a bit earlier before the crowds arrived...

You guys are pussies. Have you see the video of Denise cycling up Highgate Hill, London with 50kg of shopping on the front of the bike!

P.S. I am only kidding - guys this was a great effort (and to Denise). I must calculate your average power output.

Big smile
Strava estimated my power at 210W average inc the downhills, so prob about 230W for the climbs. We did an 'hour of power' the week before and I was at 237W average for an hour from the rear hub power meter on the TT bike.

Alan give it a go this weekend - you're doing LOTS of riding at the moment so I recon you'll be challenging for the lead...

My Strava power data comes from my power meter (rear hub). It's 263W average.

I do remember your 'hourofpower' Russel. Took me a while to figure out what it means. Thought 'hourof' is some kind of food or so

I did a quick mgh calculation for the top three heights and then converted into average power assuming 100kg for rider+bike which gave this:
 
Mike 258.6 W
Russell 206.6 W
Gautier 182.8 W
 
Maybe it would be of interest to have the rider plus bike weights for comparison as well as do a 3.281 divide to help out RestOfTheWorld cos I reckon @farwar needs to oil his chain ;)

Interestingly the chain friction is not included in that power as the power meter is hub based. Anything happening before power is going into the back wheel is ignored.

Russel's power per lb is most likely higher than mine as my body weight is 201lb. For the hill race in Germany three years ago I removed 16lb and that had helped. So Russel you have to give me more time to prepare next time LOL

The Speedmachine's weight is not too bad. After I had bought it I put lighter wheels on and replaced the standard seat by a carbon fibre seat, so weight is now 32lb.

Good idea using metric units Thumbs Up
