I ride a Coker on and off road every day. Some rides are longer and more intense than others.
The big questions I always have is, how far and how fast am I going???
I’m not into the hard wired cycle computers or even the wireless ones mounted under the seat.
But, there is an answer!
I picked up a Garmin Forerunner 205 GPS watch. It’s completely wireless. The watch makes contact directly with the satellites. It even works off road while I am riding in the tree covered trails. It’s not too big or too ugly.
It tells me in real time how fast and what distance I’ve gone just by looking at the easy to read LCD display on my wrist.
That’s not all it does, it allows me to compete against an imaginary rider and race my previous times.
It allows you to mark points along your ride to help you navigate. It comes with software with more navigation possibilities.
Did I mention that this thing is AWESOME!!
By using a device like this it only makes riding a whole lot better.
Just when you thought it couldn’t get any better.
