I am a C rider I guess. I can hang with Coco on the paced ride and outride her once I’m warmed up. I did a C ride with a group and did fine, did another and got dropped off the back towards the last quarter. Me and 3 others kept it together till the end. Humbling.
I just realized that sometimes C is rated at 2.5-3.1. Others. 2.5-3.2. I saw one that said 2.0-3.0. how is this determined? I like to ride when my say permits so I looked at a D ride. Some are 1.2-2.5 and others are 2.0-2.4. Way more variation.
Who sets these things? Also, why can’t I see my w/kg during a pace partner ride? Only during a group ride? In a PP ride, I see raw watts.
