No MacDonalds crap, I expect he fancied a nice steak afterwards...
Kudos to @veganjoseph who is attempting to Everest a small cobbled climb in Oslo today. Think he has to do 900-odd reps but he’s aiming for a 1,000 to make sure.
Bonkers! Is it very short or very shallow?
It's very short, just a little cobbled street that starts at 15%.
Yeah he's completely nuts. Good IG to follow for inspiration.
Ha makes my attempt seem somewhat luxurious!
I’ll be riding Bayleys Hill In Sevenoaks tomorrow, I’m probably going to start around 2am. If passing come say hi.
Something's not right with that lad :)
Good luck for tomorrow GoatandTricycle.
Jo not having the run of the green.....maybe I will run a second device.
Probably not too worried about it officialAlu counting i’d imagine!?
I rode up that way yesterday. If you fancy a stop the white washed cottage halfway up is vacant and to let. Might be possible to have a little chill in the garden?
Thanks. The people at the farm at the foot have agreed to let me park there and seemed pretty positive about it all so should be all good for rest stops.
Reminds me need to take a little thank you.
Farmers love amyl. Box of poppers and they'll love you forever.
Ended up Trenching it. Unfortunately, the Wahoo decided to crash and not recover the data at rep 333. Hoping to recover it somehow when I've had a good sleep. I restarted the ride and the average height for each rep was about 11.38m... did 1,001 (1 for good luck at the end) which gives me 11,380m of gain. First time a cobbled street has been Everest & Trenched, I am pretty sure, and now I know why... I'll post some data and the full ride report into here too when I'm physically able too. Took 23 hours exactly.5am-4am. Singlespeed Trek Checkpoint ALR5 in 24/20 gearing - I think I must have averaged about 60rpm hahhaha
Fully recorded on Android Strava app, but much more inaccurate, losing me about 2,500m of gain... I'll be disgusted if that's the version I have to post.
haha man thats awesome, nice work!
Well done Joseph.
Looks like Goat is well into his attempt right now!
I would have ridden over to Bayleys for support if I could, but I can't get out of work and the missus is out in the evening. Good luck @GoatandTricycle !
@veganjoseph maybe upload the files somewhere so others can have a look?
yeh upload it somewhere and post it in the garmin / gps thread. GPS wizards can help I am sure.
As long as you covered the segment they reference that for height gained is my understanding.
It took me all day... but finally got the file(s) to play ball... so much for having a break...
Done a massive write-up in the upload description on Strava:
Also raising money for Doctors Without Borders, as chosen by one of the residents of the street who helped me out and put up with my freewheel for 23 hours:
Again, reliably bonkers. :)
Funny how this sort of thing comes out in the mapping--is GPS so inaccurate that 1,000 reps generate a blobby overlay like that?
What?! You used to be cool.
I've now committed to definitely not doing a virtual one of these by taking the Mason off the turbo.
I thought you where fixie lord. what happened to you man?
