I’ve today done “The Way Out” for the first time, using a Wahoo Kickr in erg mode. The workout felt exactly as the description said it would (and the accompanying video of the French and Italian Maritime Alps is great).
But I’m curious about how the app calculates the speed that it displays on the dashboard, and whether any attention should be paid to it. If the app is to be believed, while maintaining sub-threshold power and cadences between 60 and 90 rpm, I was whizzing up the climbs of the Maritime Alps at speeds from 25 to 28+ kph. Not!
I’ve noticed in other workouts that the displayed speed seemed to be a little off from what I would imagine myself doing in the situation of a given narrative, but not as far off as this; when riding on the kinds of grades that were indicated on the screen I would be probably moving at about half the indicated speed (I’m a pursuiter, after all).
Have others had a similar experience?
