Got to work thinking I'd done well only to find my Garmin 500 didn't get a satellite lock until around halfway through my ride - needless to say the KOM's were in the first 50%. Oh well, there is always tomorrow...

that's odd. Sure you didn't forget to start it? Or possibly wheel sensor playing up?


Wheel sensor is fine, it was the GPS accuracy that was the issue. It still recorded the distance ridden as normal (~18km) but the first 4km or thereabouts shows me riding through parks and peoples houses, not on the road.

Once I had to stop at a set of traffic lights for a while, it managed to get an accurate lock and the rest of the ride was OK.

For the hills 6-7% and less, anywhere between 1 and 5km long I find I'm never on a bigger sprocket than the 21 or 23 combined with the 39, the reason I run the 25 apart from bail out gear, is for when I'm on the 53. Any higher on the cassette than 3 from the top is cross chaining. In this config its a 53*21 on a 23 it would be a 53*19.

Being a heavy guy, 88 kegs once the gradient goes beyond 8% and I've planned for it prior to the ride Ill swap the cassette for the 27 and for Mt Wellington, 12km (AT) 9% with some extended periods at 11 and 12% that's when I whip out the custom 30. Although this has now changed since I am running Campagnolo, pretty sure they do a 13-29 which is on my shopping list.

Can we not manually post anymore or is that just on my phone?... Didn't want my phone to die today so I didn't have strava running for warm up time.
And I forgot to start it for the first stage today, digging phone out of pocket climbing a 4km boss à bloc is fun... :-) .

Did anyone complete the specialized challenge from here? A couple of my mates did. :)
Once you can climb hills on a bike it's all downhill. :mrgreen:

Hopefully I'll know what that's like..... one day. :shock: :lol:

I got there with a couple of days to spare but it was very hard, I can now go up Mt Gravatt with my eyes closed.
I think the current one is going to be harder, having only had one 2400 km plus month previously.

520 kms for the w/end and my legs are shot.

ln hindsight I probably could have done the elevation one... But the twice Nunn one would just take more riding time than I have. I can't do it to the family. :)

Yep, I agree. I'm travelling OK so far with 34% complete but it's not gonna be pretty if I get it done.

I hit the 50% mark on the Nuun challenge yesterday, so I'm not tracking too badly so far.

The legs are definitely starting to feel it though, so I'm not too sure how I'm going to go with the second half of the challenge.

Got my first " someone stole your kom " email :-)... And saw for the first time you can mark a section as dangerous.

I got one of them a few days ago, only to realise after I'd clicked on it that it was set by someone who had left their GPS running and driven through the segment. Grrrrrr. (Flagged it and it was soon fixed, so all good in the end)

And saw for the first time you can mark a section as dangerous.


Yep ... although I believe that you can only do that once you've actually ridden the segment yourself.

The KOM notification is a really nice feature, not knowing was probably better however.
Knocked off the Nuun challenge yesterday, I found it extremely challenging.

Well done on the Nuun challenge. I couldn't consider even coming close to that one. Happy to just do 1 stage.

There's another notification service which I actually like a lot better, mainly because it'll let you track any person in the top 10 of a particular segment.

Well done! I'm still languishing it 92% right now. Problem is that I'm losing the last two days of the month because I'm heading interstate.

Leaves me with today and tomorrow to try and knock over another ~190KM. Still touch and go as to whether I'll actually make it I think ...

I set a new best time on a segment I've never ridden in one go. I always turn off into the national park, ride around then come back out onto the main rd and continue on.

Apparently I avg an awe insipirng 17kph on a dead flat segment....

So I rode the segment this morning before work to make it look a bit better :roll:

That service looks interesting, didn't know about it thanks.

I was down your way last week only managed the one ride, but it was better than nothing.

I've tried to sign up for the cycling target thingy, but I never receive the confirmation email once registered.

I can use the forgot password button to get a reset link sent to me and then change the password - this email comes straight away. This logs me in ok for that session, so I've sorted out the config for the sig bar, but if I try to log in again it comes up with account locked.

Thanks for the dev of the site though - very cool and I'll ditch bike journal as soon as I can get everything working smoothly.

Cheers,
Dave

Some annoying twat made a 5m long segment on a fairly busy road, so a couple of hundred odd people were sharing the KOM. Got spammed with emails for that one for a few days before I marked it as dangerous, problem solved :D

The registration email may have been picked up by a spam filter?

I set your 1st account to unlocked. Let me know if you can login now. Remember login option isn't working. I wasn't able to track that one down.
