So I’ve been training for a triathlon for a couple of months now and I got to thinking of really strange things I could do since I know I’m not going to win. Since there’s nothing I can do strange in the swim, well except maybe dress up as a monkey or something like that, and the run is well, a run. That leaves only one part where I can just go wild.
So, I have to get an idea of how long it would take me to get on my Big Wheel and do the twenty miles. I haven’t been on one since I was a kid and don’t remember that much about how fast they can go.
So I guess I want to know:
How fast I can expect to go in an hour or so.
How dead are my legs going to be after the ride.
Can I buy one for my size, I’m 6’2" and 180lbs? (and can I get one with the hand brake?)
Do they still make those orange flags so that people see you?
Hey I’m also thinking on making a “chopper” for one as well. I saw one in a shop the other day, except I want the ape-hangers for bars.
