Re: Forum Flyers

Good to know about the PM rounding down on the stroke rate!! Thanks Jack Any last minute takers for the March CTC - only need one more entry to float that 6th boat. Anna Rae Just posted my time. The covid jab really knocked me for six, so I was going to pass. Forced myself to do it, and suprised my...

Re: Forum Flyers

Also severely short of FFFFs (Fiercely Feminine Forum Flyers) this month. I figured the 2 "S"es would still be posting a time, and I'm glad I was right :). I, on the other hand, managed to miss the CTC this month after realising my slow time on the last night would make no difference (and the usual...

Re: Forum Flyers

Good plans, guys! And I suppose I can't keep heckling from the back seats, and must actually do one myself :). The tentative plan is to knock off a 6km tonight, but I must still decide if it's going to be a max effort, or sneak it in as part of a 10km for the IRL / FMMC too. At least I'm leaving mor...

Re: Forum Flyers

Good team effort so far on the World Erg Challenge. 55 signed up, and we've just gone past the 3 million metre mark, lying in 20th. Evan has opened up a solid early lead, but there are a few chasers moving well past the 100km mark. January's big metre man, Freddie, is giving everyone a headstart, bu...

Re: Forum Flyers

Awesome, Deb! Wouldn't have known otherwise. Yes, the Tron bike is a grind and a half, but a good motivation. I got to it in early January after a few Alpe sessions during the Holiday Challenge. I was also doing all my workouts on any route where I could maximise elevation. The Alpe takes time to ge...

Re: Forum Flyers

Many congratulations, Jack. I too passed a milestone this week - 15 Million metres! I have to say the prizes for reaching these milestones have improved a lot. At 15MM you’re entitled to a T Shirt and shorts! Wow! I must order the proper size I think I have a sweatshirt (10MM ?) that is huge and co...

Re: Big screen Upgrade - What do you think ?

Looks good! A sheet of clear polycarbonate cut to size could be attached to the frame of the screen, which would sort out the breakage risk. I would probably be lazy and not bother though, and trust my control. I think I've only had a handle slip out of my hands once in 17 years of using my D, so wo...

Re: Forum Flyers

Thanks for the tickle, guys. Six months less 1 week to roll the odometer on this one. Did some wax on, wax off 250s to celebrate. Enjoy the mother sport, Ivan. I think you’re in the sweep boats, IIR? Nicely done, Jack. Ticking away smoothly to the big 20! I think it would be a nice idea to have som...

Re: Forum Flyers

Good efforts everyone, especially those who actually raced yesterday, and didn't run away like me! Freddie - as suggested it's worth doing one of their test rows to see if your internet connection is OK. It's not just the speed, but also the latency, so mobile networks might not perform as well as a...

Re: Forum Flyers

For those not on Facebook we had a "fun" 1km race on Thursday with Sheena, Suzanne and myself (and 2 other non-team members). I wasn't feeling up to pushing hard, but the minute I saw Sheena racing away at the beginning, I abandoned all plans to cruise and started chasing her down. I hadn't realised...

Re: Forum Flyers

I don't have a smartphone so can't do the interactive 1K race. I uploaded today's 1K time trial anyway and managed to sneak it under 3:30 so I'm pleased with that. I've signed up for the World Erg challenge but I don't do long distances on the rower so won't be a big contributor. The 6K for the cro...

Re: Forum Flyers

Did my first race ever, but no opponents showed up for my time. Posted a 3:36.2 for the 1k sprint. Not sure if i'll have time to improve that as i have a 107mile indoor Zwift ride on Saturday and will be trashed after that. Good luck everyone doing the sprint! Rich Good luck! Sounds like you're doi...

Re: Forum Flyers

Just signed up for the World Erg Challenge on my Forum Flyers team page! (clearly pretty excited about it - this will be my first event of this type). It's a bit of a mixed bag. I've got an extended work trip that will knock me off the rower in April. But, I just happen to have taken a full week of...

Re: Forum Flyers

Hi all! I tried out the ErgRace app a bit today and shared a bit and posted a few pictures on the Facebook page in a comment on my post. Take a look here https://www.facebook.com/groups/140256237432 if you are interested in trying out the races. I think the best times are looking like March 11 at 8...

Re: Forum Flyers

I am going to have to relegate myself to the cheering section for the Indoor Sprints! I am not very good at the sprinting thing It says you need a PM5 and I am using a PM3 (which requires an actual physical cable to connect to my phone) Since I turned 55 last month, I have managed to develop issues...
