Holy EOC!

I had remembered that my Garmin Etrex Legend C (still my favorite gadget) was on for those 2 fills in my gaslog. It can graph the profile of the roads I drove, and I was amazed to find out how HUGE my EOC's were a few weeks ago. The longest EOC was 11.4 miles from 2159ft to 593ft in 15 minutes. .

Mother trucker. My 15 minute EOC's are usually the ones that I get to go about 1/8 mile in Atlanta traffic...

Wow, good stuff. Hrmmm, so that's :

(2159 - 593) / 11.4 miles = 1566 / ( 11.4 * 5280) = 1566 / 60192 = 0.0260 => 2.6% downslope.

4*(11.4 miles / 15 minutes) = 45.6 / 60 minutes => 45.6 MPH

Did you ever gain enough speed so that you had to hit the brakes somewhere along that EOC?

cfg83, for the big coasts I was trying to keep my speed low when I could so I wouldn't be speeding too much (limit 55 there). With EOC I had no power assist, but I was fluctuating 40-60 that whole time.

Man, that's a sweet EOC, no brakes required and well within the speed limit.

Simply awesome. My longest EOC would be about 60 seconds here in Flatland.

Sorry for the confusion, I meant I had no power assisted brakes but was still stepping on them to stay under 60, and would try to slow to arund 40-45 so that it would take another little while to speed up again.

There's a blip in my tracklog that I have no recolection of, but that entire slope is 14 miles... so maybe next time I'll pull an even longer one.

Anyone else in the northeast? There's some amazing coasting around here!

That is cool . My best for my commute is just a hair over one mile and I thought that was great . I don't have much elevation change around here though.
