Nothing worse than losing feeling here, it's like a bunch of needles being stuck into it, :shock: or maybe it is the missus with a Voodoo replica getting pleasure from causing you pain and discomfort. :twisted: :lol:

Being unemployed finally paid off. I go the 100 mile ride out of the way yesterday. Lucky, it is horrid here today.

yeah losing all feeling in hands and feet is not nice ( although it was no where near that cold yesterday ) ... But forgetting to wear my 3rd sock was a silly move yesterday :-) .
I need to go and buy some more heat pads but that means a trip into the big city!... Spring can only be a week or so away... Perfect Het Volk ( our what ever they call it now ) weather :-) .
Well done Norbs... A few on here seem to have had the same idea yesterday!.

Completed the 161km Quarq challenge on Saturday due to Sunday forecast.

Wasn't too bad... except for the group ride smashfest that kicked in just as I clocked over 100km mark that went for the next 20 at 40km/h. Coffee and refuel then off for the last 40. Still a little tired. But glad I got the kays in befor the weather turned sour.

What's with this strava segment? http://app.strava.com/segments/3340108
Avg grade - 26%, Lowest elv - -93m, Highest 27m, Dif 120m
Anyone that knows the spot will know that it is hardly a climb let alone a cat 4. Is there a way to edit segments with the correct info?

A glitch in the Strava system. Happens a lot.

From Velo viewer -

How to correct your segment’s bad elevation data

Visit the Strava Support Site.
Login (if not already logged in).
“SUBMIT A REQUEST”.
Pick “Segments :: Bad data” from the “I need help with” list.
Add a catchy subject like “Incorrect elevation data”.
Paste each offending Strava segment url into the description box (e.g. http://app.strava.com/segments/808884, if you’ve navigated to the segment in the context of a ride then hit the “Go to segment page »” link at the top of the map). Worth adding all your dodgy segments in one support request to save extra admin hassle at Strava.
Say a big THANK YOU to the support staff and hit the “Submit” button.
Submit the request.

The support staff are happy to do this and usually complete them in a day or two.

Thanks singlespeed, I followed those directions until I got this https://strava.zendesk.com/entries/2095 ... gment-Data
Pretty much just have to hide the segment, I might hide it and make a slightly different one.

Cheers,

A glitch in strava or google?... or a glitch with the person's data who made the segment?.

Good question.

I know Strava has some issues. There is a spot near me where apparently the seaside cliff is 300m up the road. :) It shows as flat on the Garmin, but once in Strava, there is a 15m drop :)

I'm feeling somewhat guilty as I start to pad out my area with some good segments (tons of hills, good solid distances over a couple kms) and I pad out my signature with KOMs, but there you go. They need to hurry up and take me on!! 8)

I'm currently 22nd on the Train Like Taylor challenge :mrgreen: Had a long ride this morning which has me at 13% of the challenge, also pushing the pedals into town this arvo and going for a longish ride tomorrow morning! So who knows, I may get a little higher :)

I didn't think I'd have much chance doing 32 hours in 16 days, but things might just conspire to get me there :!:

Also, the top speed errors on Strava really irk me, for my last ride it has my top speed as 91.6km/h :!: Bryton has it at 76.5, which was accurate, why can't it get transferred properly :?:

i finished the 15 hr challenge this morning in the rain. Brisbane has had shocking weather this week. almost all my rides involved either rain, drizzle or wet roads. I'm currently the only one in ACF to finish it :shock:
Am sure jules will finish it tomorrow

EDIT: 1 dry ride in the last 6 days

I lose about 10-20% on most rides using my iphone compared to others on the same ride using a Garmin... I think it depends on the maps in your area and how well your roads are mapped.

Congrats on being the first ACF member to finish. Don't think many areas have had the greatest weather for the challenge so it's been a real test for just what people will ride in. I'm contemplating what to do for my final ride or two to finish it off. Have a feeling it will involve getting covered in mud again :D

Top effort mate! I only managed a commute or two and a riverloop on Thursday (dryish). Supposed to do a Redcliffe ride tomorrow, but it's not looking good.

Kedron Brook and the Boondall wetlands are currently under water. Riding up the hill outside the dump I almost lost the front there was that much water rushing down the pathway.

cheers for the comments guys. can't believe I'm the only one to have finished from ACF with a day to go.

as I said weather was unpleasant, but it was one I could do "for my country"
and by the looks of the weather we've had since I got home, I finished just in time.

Hey Stravaerers

I have a ride where the garmin was playing up, not showing speed. Only fix was to swap bikes in the menu or turn it off and on. Then I forgot to press start again a couple of times.

I remember reading about a program that fixes wonky gps tracks but cant think of the name? Not even sure it would work but worth a try.
