Thanks for the kind words.
There is no brainstorming session as such.
The basic process usually goes like this:
1- GVA opens the door of our minion’
2- He grunts something about wanting a new session produced.
3- He drops a couple of VHS tapes of cycling races he traded for cabbage and real pagne on the blackmarket
4- He hands over a fistful of special Sufferlandrian magic mushrooms that we immediately start chewing
5- We then play the VHS tapes while riding our 55x10 single speed at 95RPM on the fluid trainer and wait for the 'shrooms to kick in.
6- Then the non-ilitterate minion (there is just one and he stays off the mushrooms) scribbles down the nonsense we come up with while getting delirious on the trainer… And a new Sufferfest is born…
Thanks for the kind words.
Just completed this after two weeks of academic suffering that did nothing for my numbers. Beautiful, such a great way to jump back in. Thank you to everyone that made it happen. And it feels so good to be home.
well, you can never leave so…
Thanks for the Kansas and Wizard of Oz nod!
Did anybody else notice that on the “easy spin” in Couchlandria at the beginning the video is mirrored? You can see a few signs and text on the bikes that are backwards… and of course the riders are on the left side of the road. Is @Francois-Wahoo trying to suggest that Couchlandria is located in Great Britain or maybe even Australia? Is our Chief of Suff actually a Couchlandrian resident? Major plot twist people…
I swear, the first couple minutes of the women CX on the beach (around 25min) is some of the best stuff you guys have ever put out. NPLH!
I wonder how long it would take for someone to point it out.
Well done you!
Funny, I rode it a few hours ago, and I was about to say exactly the same thing. That subliminal laser goat!
surely you mean the worst stuff.
It’s not available on SYSTM app for, I tried logout and back on, closed the app and reopened, still can’t find new one. Is is limited to certain riders.
It should be available for everyone.
In Library → Cycling, I see the following when I type in ‘place’ in the search bar:
What version of the app are you running?
Cobbler comes to mind which has cadence targets synced to the music BPM. So it is not the first.
I tend to hit the cadences quite well. With cobbler it is quite easy since you just have to pedal to the beat.
Here is the explanation from Francois-Wahoo for cobbler:
I have done Cobbler five times, and I never noticed that.
I guess the difference is that in “No Place Like Home” it was done as a “test” with small step increases. Therefore, I was paying more attention. In Cobbler, as a “race of long duration”, I was less focused on the exact cadence, and I never pedal to the beat.
If the cadence target is steady, I usually can get it plus or minus 1, but in “No Place Like Home” you have to make 2 step increases in 40 second increments. I wonder what the purpose of those small increments is.
I notice right away when the suggested cadence is on the music’s beat because I find it difficult not to pedal with the music! So, when I first did Cobbler, I was pleased to notice the difference!
I noticed during one of my Cobbler videos that when I looked from chewing stem that my cadence of 68rpms was perfectly matching the target on screen. So, the music matching the target definitely plays a big part.
“No Place Like A Very Dark Place” mashup?
But you’d have to end on the sprinty bits so “No Place Like A Very Dark Home”
I love that! Very dark home indeed
I LIKE this one!
