Ride number two with the GPS Tracker attached. After changing the logging frequency to every 5 seconds, the results are much better than before with no spurious data being displayed within the log.
The ride took me up Rooley Moor Road, over the horrible cobbles upto Ding Quarry, after a little play around the old spoil heaps I then tracked up to the service road for the Wind Farm.
The turbines were spinning at full tilt, there is a little noise from the generator and the blades as they spin, but they’re not that intrusive.
What I hadn’t factored into my ride plan was the wind. Obviously, the fast spinning blades of the turbines should have been an indicator, but until you’ve actually been up there you don’t realise how strong it is. I had to pedal downhill to make any headway!.
All in all, a good ride. I need to get a new spd plate as the cleat detached again and need to get round to servicing my bike, but it was good as I didn’t struggle with the climb, nor did I get lost..
