TrentonMakes Posted August 14, 2014 Share #1 Posted August 14, 2014 I used Strava on this morning's ride, and I see that there's one "climb" on the route I took. It's a brutal ascent - 1.1 miles at 2%. A good chunk of that elevation gain happens within one short segment just beyond the canal bridge. I did it in just over 6 minutes, at 11mph. That was good for 11th out of 12 riders. I know I'm probably just about the slowest climber here; I'm OK with that. The Strava-best time for this climb is about 3-1/2 minutes, over 19 mph. To me that actually seems slower than I'd have expected. But it'd take me a long time to get that fast. I had no idea about this beforehand, but now that I know it's there I can already feel myself saving the legs for that climb the next time I ride it. Should be pretty easy to beat 6 minutes the next time; but all the times after that are going to be hard. 3 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
