alpe d’huez 1 and 2: the stats

I was looking at the stats for monday and thursday’s ascents of the alp. it’s quite interesting reading.

7.4 miles Time Av Speed Max Speed Calories Av HR Max HR
Monday 60.35 7.4mph 18.2mph 882cal 182bpm 191bpm
Thursday 49.11 9.2mph 23mph 690cal 180bpm 198bpm

The height gain on the alp was 3330 feet.

And ascent versus descent on croix de fer:

18.6 miles Time Av Speed Max Speed Calories Height gain
Ascent 1.53.08 9.9mph 31.mph 1397cal 4856 ft
Descent 51.11 21.5 60mph 367 cal

in comparison, this morning i went out with a few chums on quite a hilly ride. we did around 40 miles with some horrible little climbs. my heartrate stayed below 190bpm and the total climbing was 2800 feet.

here’s a graph from alpe d’huez. the elevation is hilarious.
