Howth spin on new Bowery

I took my Giant Bowery, currently singlespeed, up Howth Head Sunday evening. I was a bit concerned with how the Bowery would go on the climb, but I want to get a couple of goes up Howth in before I turn it fixed gear (because I love high speed descents).

Here’s the route map thanks to Gmap Pedometer.


By the numbers:

  • Distance: 28.8km (17.9 miles)
  • Time: ~ 1 hour 20 mins
  • Average HR: 135
  • Maximum HR: 170 (took it easy!)
  • Calories: ~ 1149 (estimate from Polar)
