During my morning walk, I got thinking about some feelings and numbers in our gaming area. It wouldn’t happen without MT’s stubbornness based on P150. The GMA program would never have happened without it and mutual competition as well as - hopefully - cooperation. The only thing I hope for is that, regardless of what the SOTA and GMA programs mean for each of us, our hobby world is essentially the same.
My virtual SOTA or GMA activation in a few numbers and points, after P150 is applied:
Car energy consumption 2 MJ/km; the most common distances are 200 kilometres: 400 MJ or 0.4 GJ (The calorific value of diesel fuel is roughly 37 MJ/litre).
The results of a man’s energy consumption: 0.4 kJ/kg.min while ascending, 0.25 kJ/kg.min while descending, 2 hours, 100 kg, activation is not included: cca 4 MJ,
e.g. 1 percent from a trip energy demand.
Tens of summits: No car, bike instead of driving. The results of a man’s energy consumption: 0.60 kJ/kg.min while on the mountain bike and ascending, 0.20 kJ/kg.min while descending, 3 hours, 114 kg (bike included), activation is not included: cca 8 MJ,
100 % from a trip energy demand.
If I can just give my two pennies worth: Moreover, mostly less known hills, less crowded…, thus I wish there were more SOTA activators and chasers adopting GMA as well.
