Mt Stromlo ride after 5PM

Mt Stromlo ride after 5PM

Postby yyeric » Thu Mar 25, 2010 7:13 am

Anyone interested in doing probably 2 laps of Mt Stromlo at around 5:40 starting from traffic light of cotter road and streeton drive?

Like to get some riding in me so I can see how the dynamo light will be light.

i think myself and robdog will be riding this arvo in the vicinity of stromlo and probs heading up the hill

our plan is regatta - coppins - stromlo - regatta.

i havent spoken to him yet, but unsure of our timing.

would be good to have someone else have to wait for me at the top of another hill :)

lovely.
Haks you got my mobile, give me ring if anything.
I will go from ANU (at 5:00) to Scrivener Dam then follow bike path to Cotter, in case it coincides with anyone's route to Stromlo.

Nice, might cross paths. I might actually head to Stromlo a bit earlier and do a run before meeting you guys (AT) the base of the climb. Gotta get home a bit earlier then i would if i did 2 runs from around 6pm.

Love the beam shape and will source a adaptor to charge mobile for touring soon.

I just sold a brand new Mars 3.0 light as it does suit my bike (aero post & low saddle bag). Pity as it looked like an awesome light.

Cheers for the ride guys, was good fun. Nice to finally put a face to the name as well Lucus. Was nearly a PB up Stromlo the first time for me, thanks for the pacing Eric (who wasn't even close to been puffed at the top :P)

Cracked 2k for the year as well (BJ will update over night) :lol:

Mars 3.0 is by far the best I have had. Got probably 5 of them at cheap price and gave away most of them already. It's still $20 from Wiggle though, for those interested.

I seem to have turned on auto lap on each 5km. So don't have a good indication on how long it too. Was sit a sub-13mins effort on both runs?

Congrats on the 2K. Great stuff.

If anyone' s interested in doing Mt Stromlo runs, give me a yell and more than happy to do a few repeats.

Best prop for those 2 guys climbing on uni-cycle. Geezzzzz

First climb was 11:53 according to my GPS. That is stopping it at the red fire hydrant near the trig point. The official timing point (speed hump) was close to 11 flat. Puts me in pos 25 on Hillclimbr

2nd climb was a 12:48 for me so a bit quicker for you speedy.

Red Hill repeats next time, short and steep! :twisted:

Nice! good effort.

Will actually put Mt Stromlo hill repeats on my weekly schedule, aiming for sub 10mins effort when next summer comes.

Hillclimbr's a cool website, interesting to see how it calculated the power output.

Anyone wants to do 3 peaks in one go? Stromlo, Red Hill and Black Mountain.

Maybe after I do Black Mt. itself a little later on. Not that there's any point any of us going up hill at the same time as you... You've died of boredom by the time we arrive :wink:
