Watching the Jurassic Park movies before they disappear from Amazon & had a fantastic idea!
Some routes already have a peaceful dinosaur presence. How cool would it be to have a T Rex or Velociraptor run out and give chase as you cycle by? That could maybe be the start of a sprint segment where you hear “HAMMERTIME” & if you are too slow, next words will be: “I’m toast”!
Apparently the T-Rex was notoriously slow (10-12mph) to the point your average cyclist could easily outrun it.
How people know this I’m not sure. Not every T-Rex is the same a bit like me and Usain Bolt are both human only he can run twice as fast as me.
Therefore watch out for the odd T-Rex trying to do strange actions with his diddy little arms.
something to do with how much muscle it would need/could have had to move considering it weighed like 6 tonnes or something.
wonder what w/kg it’d be able to do!
The irony being that tyrannosaurs’ physiques quite closely resemble many pro cyclists.
That assumes we’re on pavement!
One day that sloth is going to fall from the tree in the Jungle and grab my wheel, I just know it!
Before or after the wolf at the top of the climb in Makuri eats you?
I always thought I was someone who paid the most attention to everything on the routes and all the little furry creature details.
Now I’m kind of terrified to be hearing about this.
I plead ignorance is bliss
to move 6000kg at 16kmh, it takes 59259.3 joules. (Possibly in a vacuum though. Kinetic Energy Calculator )
If a T. rex step takes 2 seconds, that’s 29,629.65 watts.
Surprisingly close to a strong human…
As long as I don’t find them in C category, I’m good
I’d really like to some Mech vs Kaiju battles somewhere in Makuri… where is the Mt. Fuji climb with a battle at the top to watch as you climb ever closer to the action?
Sorry this is a garbage calculation.
Well that brought the mood down.
As someone whose first computer was a ZX81, I would be unhappy if the in-game message was anything other than “Rex is hunting you”.
You must have a couple of years on me as i was a Spectrum 48k child.
Yeah, had several of those too. Still have a +2 in fact.
