Anyone here use this site? I'm surprised it's not more popular than it appears, i love the concept and i've already found several new rides thanks to it. I've looked at hillclimbr too but the layout of it doesn't seem as easy to use.

Have you looked at www.Strava.com ?

I'm I huge fan of this and there is increasing use in the community since it has gone free.

yeah i use it regularly. it's good to know how good or (in my case) bad your times are compared to others! For me it pushes me to go harder up the climbs and hopefully leapfrog a couple in the list of that climb.

Hadn't heard of it and had a look but with cycle2max theres no need for a garmin etc. I will probably get one eventually though. I'm really curious as to why there are so few times for Gyndier Drive up Tinbeerwah, when it's a popular training ride, and part of the Noosa Century and Noosa Triathlon.

The need of a Garmin (or other GPS based unit) may restrict the user base for Strava as compared to cycle2max and I believe that shows on climbs that are listed on both sites, cycle2max seams to have more riders. However it also makes it a lot easier to add climbs and I've noticed in my area at least there are a lot more climbs on Strava than on cycle2max. You don't need the garmin to search the site to find new rides, just if you want to upload your ride to go on the leaderboard.
