On December 15, Linus Bike responds to a CNET article describing a writer’s experience using a new bike computer made by Garmin.
According to the article published on CNET website, writer Jay Greene set out to ride one of Washington State’s most difficult trails, called Ramrod (Ride Around Mt. Rainier in One Day), in under 10 hours. Greene said he owed his success to Garmin’s new bike computer called the Edge 500, reports the article.
The Garmin Edge 500, Greene said, sits just below the handlebars on the bike’s stem. It is able to monitor and reveal the rider’s speed, distance ridden, and the cadence at which the rider’s feet are pedaling.
The article detailed Greene’s ride. About seven hours into his ride and after covering about 104 miles, Green started getting severely fatigued. He still had to bike about 45 miles in less than three hours and needed data to keep him on track. He said the Edge is what fueled him to finish the trail and meet his goal of under 10 hours.
Greene said in the article, “What makes the big difference, though, is that it continually motivates me by giving me information about my ride. Those cues -- such as average speed, which I knew needed to top 15 mph to achieve my Ramrod goal -- are all I need to push a little harder and train a little more.”
China Reevers, a representative of the city bikes manufacturer Linus Bike, said, “New technology is a great thing. The Garmin Edge 500 can really help a cyclist push themselves to the limits and help them achieve their goals. It can only enhance your biking experience.”
