Thank you for visiting health24.com.
I suggest that you consult a cardiologist, in order to have a stress ECG done, to exclude any form of cardio-vascular disease. In the light of your hypertension and the symptoms you experienced while cycling, it is important to have this test done as soon as possible. From your heartrates, I conclude that you are fit but you have to remember to remain below your target heartrate for your age, which is about 160 to 170 beats per minute.
