I Definitely Need To Try This Challenge

...and I think I would enjoy it.  Likely would be my go to tactic on Mt Washington.

 

Do you have a climb that long to test it on? You need to ride out here in the Rockies and do some long climbs.

I'd love having the Rockies outside my back door!

We have the Appalachians, so I can easily find a 20 minute climb. This is the first of many sawtooth climbs into Shenandoah Nat Park on Skyline.  Up for 4 miles, flat/down for one, up for four, flat/down for one, etc..  Four miles definitely takes me more than 20 minutes.  Maybe standing the whole way would help!

1171 ft? Come on. We can do better. 

In 20 minutes? Strava that for me and let me know! :D Of the 3,600 folks who did that segment, 55 have broken 20 min.  So, maybe standing, I will be able to break it!!!

But this sawtooth layout has a few opportunities, and makes it fun.

I don't do strava, not even sure what it is or does. Let's go 6000 ft to 8000 ft.

Sadly, I missed the sign up window for the 2019 ride :( Seemed fun, but probably focused on keeping the size manageable until it is a well oiled race. Start small and grow as things get more streamlined.

Pick one. I'm in.
