A fellow approached me at the velodrome on friday and asked if I would power his HPV (human powered vehicle) at a time trial/hpv convention the following day. I would have loved too, but I took a spin and it was much too small for me.

There were lots of HPV'ers out and about that night and we got to talking about their average speeds. Most of these guys were hoping to average 40mph in the 33 mile TT. They were all interesting folks, engineers and tinkerers mostly.

Anyway, have some of you good people tried this? I was really disapointed at being sized out. It would have been a blast seeing the computer pegged at 40 for 33 miles.

Regards,
