A member of an indoor rowing team or club? If so, this is the place for you.

I survived RAGBRAI. Took a rest day and felt really strong on Monday. Knocked out a 90 minute BikeErg session at an average of 270 watts. My previous best was 60 minutes at 280 (or 285, I forget) watts. I'm going to do a 60 minute FTP test soon - and hopefully hit 300 watts average!

Congratulations Shaun! B)
"NASA's next-generation big rocket is about ready to finally get off the ground, and now we know who will be flying on the Artemis I mission that's headed to the moon. Well, sort of.

The European Space Agency announced Tuesday that Shaun the Sheep, the famed stop-motion British TV character, will be aboard the first flight of the new Space Launch System to kick off the Artemis program, which will eventually return astronauts to the surface of the moon."

Wasn't allowed to say anything. Should be quite a trip!

Are they going to allow you to bring an erg, so that you actually row to the moon and back? :lol:

Wow, Zach!! Those BigErg stats are pretty impressive, but RAGBRAI--454.1 miles over seven days of riding on outdoor terrain (across Iowa) and climbing 11,954 feet--now that't seriously amazing! I had to look it up, which is why your accomplishment didn't immediately register. Congratulations!!

Well, I'm pretty sure I typed "BikeErg" and didn't notice that it had morphed into "BigErg". I hate when that happens. They were Big Erg stats, too.

Thanks! RAGBRAI wasn't too bad. We had absolutely perfect weather for late July in Iowa. Mid to low 80's during the day, getting down into the low 60's / high 50's at night. We had roughly an hour (!) of rain in the early evening on one day. The most difficult part of the week, for me, was finding vegetarian options - RAGBRAI food vendors lean pretty hard into serving meat-based meals.
