Texas Hellweek 2001

Official Texas Hellweek site

Hellweek Odometer: 650 miles!

Other fun stats: - 42 energy bars - 17 shots of carb gels - 26 food bars - 29 bananas

Here is a crude map of the Texas “hill country”. Right in the center of the map you can see Fredericksburg, this is ground zero for Hellweek.

Feb:
Training program begun for Hellweek. Doing spinning classes two to three times a week to work on interval training (speed and hills). Spending a lot of time on the trainer getting “saddle time”, between 5 to 10 hours per week to start with. Also looking to drop some more weight before the event, any weight dropped is weight I don’t have to pedal up those hills.

March 2, 2001:
Did a long ride in a reprieve from the horrendous winter and got to do a decent gear test.

March 3, 2001:
Did another gear test, this time got all the data captured that I’m looking for.
