PERSONALISED CYCLING PERFORMANCE ANALYSIS

MARGINAL GAINS CALCULATOR

There isn't one simple thing that will make you quicker than everyone else on a bicycle, but lots of small changes which add together, this philosophy is employed by the number one cycling organisation: Team Sky, and referred to as "The accumulation of marginal gains".  A technique which has led them to two consecutive Tour de France victories.  It is no longer the preserve of the Pro Peloton, however, with the CYCLE-SPEED Marginal Gains Calculator allowing you to determine your very own marginal gains.  Just fill in the boxes below (using data from your favourite ride analysis app such as Strava or Map My Ride), and hit the "calculate" button.  If you want more information on any item just hit the "info" button next to the marginal gain figure.
