    How was it? It's a pretty nice climb to do reps on in terms of road width, road surface, traffic volume, turnaround space top & bottom.

    Doesn't show up for me for some reason. Can you paste the link/video into this thread? Would be pretty!

    Someone has done that. Charli in Colorado. They have a Vimeo video about it too. Don't remember the title / link right now though. But they got first brakeless fixed Everesting!

    Yeah, strange thing is the Android phone GPS data actually stuck closer to my real position but was a bit more erratic at times (when I uploaded to Strava it seemed to count 1,020ish reps). Although, the upload is purely for the harnessing of the barometric Wahoo data more than my accurate position in the horizontal plane of existence.

    Freewheel - yep, I'm going to switch to fixed soon. Got myself a bolt-on cog from VeloSolo which I am excited to try out. Haven't ridden fixed for almost 6 months. Now I have no reason not to!

    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:

    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.

    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
