300 km Brevet – A self-experiment (Part 2)

2022-05-13T15:15:39+02:00

I hadn't actually planned to do this 300 brevet in Emsland. Rather, I wanted to have ridden the "flat" three-hundred in Twisteden in April. However, due to a persistent cold I had to change my plans and because of the "proximity" to the starting point I decided on this Emsland brevet ... [...]

The whole brevet series? A self-experiment – Part 1: 200km

2022-05-05T15:14:46+02:00

Last year in September I rode a brevet for the first time (you can find my report here). From then on, my ambition got the better of me and this year I'd like to do a complete brevet series, i.e. 200, 300, 400 and 600 kilometres. Of course, a lot of it [...]

Test Powermeter Pedals Garmin Rally RS 200 – Better than Vector 3? Is the upgrade worth it?

2022-04-06T15:12:30+02:00

Last year I bought my first pedals with power measurement (Garmin Vector 3) and rode several thousand kilometres with them (click here for my experience report). Now that Garmin has released its successor, the Rally 200, and I was able to test them extensively for 2 months, I would like to briefly [...]

Hammerhead Karoo 2 – Competition for Garmin and Co?

2021-10-13T23:08:17+02:00

Like probably many other cyclists, I had not previously considered Hammerhead as a serious supplier of bicycle computers. However, this changed abruptly when Hammerhead released the Karoo 2, which was obviously well received in the market and was hyped accordingly. Reason enough for me to take a closer look at the Karoo [...]

My premiere as a randonneur: First test over 200km (Brevet ARA Niederrhein)

2021-09-30T15:00:32+02:00

True to the motto "Higher, faster, further", my "after-work rounds" with the velomobile have become longer and faster in recent months. Inspired by tour reports and videos of events like PBP (Paris-Brest-Paris) or LEL (London - Edinburgh - London), I had tasted blood and wanted to ride my first 200km brevet. I [...]

Garmin Edge 1030 plus – Functioning re-routing at last?

2021-09-23T11:10:19+02:00

For one year and more than 5,000 km I have been using the Garmin Edge 830 (click here for my experience report) on my bikes. And all in all, I am really very satisfied. If only there wasn't the problem with the re-routing, which almost drove me crazy on my last tour [...]

Test Garmin Vector 3 – performance measurement on the velomobile

2021-07-19T15:39:45+02:00

As an ambitious hobby cyclist, I ask myself from time to time how fit I actually am! How good is my form compared to last season? How good am I compared to other cyclists? After all, fitness or the state of training changes all the time ... Actually, the form should continuously [...]
