Rookie (1/6)

  1. Thanks everyone for your help. I got a second hand Garmin Edge 820 and used it for the 1st time yesterday. It seems really nice and looking forward to better data as I start using it more
  2. Hi there I got back on the bike (MTB that is) about 2 months ago. I want to spend more time riding with my dad but yesterday I carried on riding with his buddies after he turned back and when I lost the group after Albert's, they suggested that I meet them 5km away and then didn't wait for me, leaving me to find my own way back to the Junction. I felt exceptionally unsafe and have lost trust in this group. I'm looking for new riding buddies. I can ride Tuesdays or Thursdays from about 3h30 from the Junction and Saturdays or Sundays at any location around Gauteng (Northern Farm, Spruit, etc). I'm riding the Junction to Emmarentia and back at about 15km/hr ave and maybe a bit slower on a longer ride while I build up endurance. Looking for riding partners where sticking together is paramount.
  3. Good luck. I joined Strava but for a new sign up, it's R600 a year... Not sure I will commit after the 2 month trial...
  4. Thanks for the advice on second hand and the web link for feature comparison, cheers
  5. The chick in my name give it away? Lol! I'm used to wearing the chest band, so that's not a big issue for me. Thanks for the feedback, I can imagine some people don't find it comfortable
  6. Hey cyclists. I've been off the bike for something like 8 years. And it's now time to change that. Been riding twice a week for the past 3 months or so, starting to put together some equipment again. I used to have a Polar hrm with chest band and sensors for speed (and cadence? Can't remember). Of course I can't find the chest band and it's waaay old. There seems to be a big shift in hrms, brands, chest band reading versus wrist only. Anyone have good advice for me on what to look at? - measure and download heart rate - display and download speed, distance, elapsed time, cadence would be nice, altitude would be nice - price is a factor. Looking for reasonable not top of the line
