Solar RV cycling log May 9. Are there just many good ways?


Maybe there are just many good ways for James.

But he will take the risk of saying that even they difficult short Voyage tonight indicates that indeed the ball of the feet on the pedals has a crucial role to play. They are invaluable sensors at the variance Beast.

The strategy tonight that showed some promise was that the objective is to keep substantial pressure on the bottom of the feet on the pedals ultimately for the forward conceptual 50% of the cycle. In a funny way the kneading that a cat can do comes to mind. I just remembered that this is an old old friend. It can bring terrible complications but it seems to be necessary. At least tonight it set up a very useful alternating such that the forward leg applied the pressure and it was clear that the non downward leg should be applying no pressure. The non-primary leg can get lazy and rest on the pedal robbing energy from getting to the vehicle.

At least tonight the solved a lot of problems, the tendency of the body to jerk or Force various parts of the cycle. The body to let the Contours of the road or the motor dictate the Cadence. Pressure on the ball of the feet means that there is some tension in the feet and ankles and these can act as shock absorbers smoothing these things out and sparing the thighs from all of the adjustment.

A recent friend was helpful tonight as well, remembering that the body is primary and that the mechanics of the vehicle and the pedeling are secondary. Body is too willing to try and adjust to the cycle and taking care of the body needs, the biomechanics of the body, can make things much less frustrating and more comfortable and ultimately more powerful and sustainable.

Oh, and a fabulous friend of about 9 months ago showed up again today. At least a close cousin. The notion seemingly magical nine months ago of extracting energy from the ground beneath the vehicle with the uprising leg! It made no sense. It produced wonderful sustainable performance for many weeks and then could not be rediscovered. But it wasn't Magic. By emphasizing the full smooth upward rise of the leg it helps sustain pressure on the ball of the foot on the pedal going forward all the way through the cycle.. Conscious competence. It will be interesting to see whether this friend stays around for a while now.

Yes, James has not been producing Netflix recently. The changes are so radical that he's trying to come to grips with how to stabilize things and use metrics more productively going forward.
