    Whenever someone tells you “go to Hell”, just bring up this picture and say “I already have”

    So much fun going down those hills, so much suffering climbing them. A solo climb on a long steep grade is the loneliest place in the world.

    i live in the foothills and going back home for me is always a struggle especially the last half mile which 12% grade

    I love climbing. I do love descending too, but that requires a hyper-aware mindset where I’m constantly scanning the road ahead for cars or assessing other potential dangers.

    When I’m climbing, I don’t usually have to be so focused on the road ahead because I’m moving much slower. I get into a pedaling and breathing rhythm, and I fall into an almost meditative state. I’m obviously still very aware of my surroundings, but my mind is very calm. I love that feeling.

    I'm addicted to climbing now. Absolutely love it!

    Last big climb I did had a 8.7km segment at 8.5%. To maintain 200W at my weight and with my gearing (36/28), I was mashing around 36rpm!

    Started cycling three months ago so this was a huge goal. Being on flat for so long is really weird, things start to ache that don’t usually, and you actually want a bit of a climb to use your muscles in a different way. The only time I stopped pedalling was on approach to junctions and tight bends.

    If this wasn’t measured in km, I’d think it was on Long Island heading to Montauk. Where is it?

    The flat 100? I nearly rode this but did the two ton tour across Wales instead. There were a few hills today that I would gladly have swapped for pancake flat and less scenic.

    How do you get Strava to generate these ride summary photos?

Got carried away and rode the entire city (again) in 2019

    I first rode the whole city back in 2014. My intent was to just ride different roads this year. I made an overlay for my Garmin Edge 800 that shows which roads I hadn't been down yet, so I could just randomly pick up additional roads while I was out riding. But a cool windy spring kept my rides in town, and the rides became less random and more methodical. Early on I made a second overlay that shows me roads I'd never been on, so I started taking all-time road coverage to ridiculous levels, and finally did the busy roads I deliberately skipped the first time.

    That’s wild and I have no idea how you logistically did that
