## Is 400 watts a lot of power cycling?

As you can see, the best human efforts at producing **power** over the course of an hour on a **bicycle** are around 300-**400 Watts**.

## Is 200 watts a good FTP?

**FTP** in **watts** for females

Like with the men, not many women say they have a 190W **FTP** when it could be 200W instead. There is less resolution for this data because there are a lot more males than females that use Cycling Analytics. 46% of people have an **FTP** below **200**W. 10% of people have an **FTP** between **200**W and 210W.

## How many watts can you generate on a bicycle?

Pedaling a bike at a reasonable pace generates about **100 watts** of power. That’s the same energy-per-time used by a 100-watt lightbulb. So if you pedaled eight hours every day for 30 days (no weekends off), then doing the math, you’d generate 24 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of energy.

## What is a good watts per kilo for cycling?

Table: Power-to-weight ratio/watts per kilogram for a range of rider weights and power outputs

120w |
240w | |
---|---|---|

75kg | 1.6 | 3.2 |

80kg | 1.5 | 3.0 |

85kg | 1.4 | 2.8 |

90kg | 1.3 | 2.7 |

## What is a good FTP for a female cyclist?

How ‘good’ is your FTP?

---|---|---|

Male | 5.6 – 6.4 w/kg | 5.2 – 5.7 w/kg |

Female |
5.3 – 5.6 w/kg | 4.5 – 5.2 w/kg |

## Is 4 watts per kg good?

Here are the categories that they recommend you race based on your FTP data and **watts per kilogram**. The Zwift C category (next from the bottom) says that you should be able to ride at the level between 2.5 to 3.1 w/**kg**. If you want to succeed in the A category, you’ll need to be able to hit 4.0 w/**kg** or better.

## Is 200 watts good cycling?

Most pro **cyclists** produce about **200** to 300 **watts** on average during a four-hour tour stage. The recreational rider, on the other hand, might be only able to sustain this **wattage** during a 45-minute or hour-long spin class. “That’s what’s **great** about **wattage**.

## What is a decent FTP?

Average recreational cyclists would be about 2.5-3.0 Watts/Kg for **FTP**. People who race regularly may be 3.0-3.75. You get above 3.75-4.25 and those are local elite racers. Anything over 4.25 is domestic pro and it goes up from there.

## How many watts is 25 mph?

## What is a good power to weight ratio cycling?

A power to weight ratio of 5-6 would put you in the range of a Category 1 elite professional (according to Andy Coggan’s power profiling chart). So what this means for any cyclist is that the greater your **strength** compared to your weight, the faster you are going to be on the bike.

## How many watts is an Olympic cyclist?

When pedalling at these cadences, world-class sprint track cyclists can produce incredible levels of power: more than 2,200 watts for men and more than 1,400 watts for women. Healthy men and women in most other walks of life would struggle to produce more than **800 watts** and **600 watts** on a bike, respectively.

## How much electricity can a reasonably fit person generate in an hour with a bike generator?

After doing a little research, I found that an efficient **bike generator** pedaled by a **reasonably fit person can** produce about 100 watts of continuous output. An experienced biker **can** produce a peak of more than 400 watts, but peaks don’t count for **much** when it comes to pedal **power generators**.

## Is 5 watts per kg good?

If everything goes **well**, I should hit **5**+w/**kg**. For most (not all), the key to **5** w/**kg** is to lose weight. There is definitely a limit as to how much power you can build, but for most, weight is the factor that will bring the most gains. No where near **5** W/**Kg** but I would say that being light will be a key contributor.

## What is a pro cyclist FTP?
