When I first got into cycling a decade, the most scientific my training got was smashing it round a local 10-mile loop as hard as I could in an attempt to edge my average speed up that extra kilometre per hour or so. In order to record this, I of course needed a cycle computer, and although I can’t remember if that computer was this exact same Cateye Velo Wireless model that I am reviewing here, it was certainly very similar.
