BikeErg Ranked Workouts

Post by Garyvrck » May 25th, 2019, 2:12 pm

Hello,
I have just purchased a BikeErg and have completed a couple of workouts (awesome product by the way!).

Any thoughts if it might it be possible to add a 10 km distance to the ranked workout list? It seems to be an awfully big gap between 4km and 40km ... A 10km would map well with the 5km rowing distance.

Thanks in advance for your thoughts,
Gary

Glad you’re enjoying it. There is the 30 minutes and 60 minutes (typically 14km-18km, and 26km-36km for most people) so that’s two events between 4km and 40km. Every event can’t be based purely on distance.

Yes, I've noticed the same thing. There are only 9 Bikeerg events, compared to 14 for the ski and row ergs.
Of the 9 events, 3 of them take 1 minute or less, going by average times, and 4 of them take well under 2 minutes.
Another 3 events are 1 hour or longer! That leaves only 2 events between 1:48 and an hour, 4k (7:52) and 30 minutes.

Good events to add would be 2k, 10k and 20k, as they are roughly equivalent to 1k, 5k and 10k for the ski and row ergs.

I’d love to have a distance event in the 20-25 min range!
