I'm doing the same rides as previous years. My climbing percentage is lower than when I had my edge 510 (I now have a 1000). I cbf'd going through on every ride. My climbing percentage is around 1.2% at the moment where it was close to 1.5% with the edge 510

Yup, 510 particularly older firmware is one of the most generous. The 1000 is a little on the stingy side but not too bad unless all your rides are undulating rather than full on climbs. Then you might be 30-40% under a 510!

Because they all use changes in barometric pressure. So sensor placement changes and device design can change what is and isn't detected

Also software with different hysteresis settings.

I replaced my fading 510 with the 820... And the new machine gives absolutely no favours!!! And at 90kg+ I think I should get elevation GST!

I will pass 6000km on my way home today, with 62,000m of climbing.

(My signature below is slightly behind the times. I updated Strava this morning with a few day's of rides.)

11,100km and 100k+.

Elevation gone up with me being in France and riding all the iconic climbs.

They've been awesome fun to ride on, although Bonette was hard work, it goes up so high.

That one's definitely on my TODO list. :D I fly to France on Tuesday, and will shortly spend 4 weeks cycling through the Pyrénées: lots of elevation there, with several climbs reaching over 2000m.

As for my total this year, the distance and climbing are almost what jasonc has done.

Definitely do Vars first, the Bonette second and finish off by riding up into Auron. That's a good day of riding.

The descent off Bonette is extremely fast and very open so if you get a windy day you'll be blown around. It's cold up there too. A couple of corners are sharper than they look too. Be careful with your brakes.

My year is shot to pieces. Fractured hip hip means a long time off the bike :(

Got my front wheel taken out at speed in a bunch ride. Stuff happens :(
Was looking good for the year as well.
Be at least two months off the bike.

So I'm on a run of 1000km months (32 in a row). We're away the last week of the month. There's 14 commute days that I have to do just under 900kms. Wish me luck

Similar to my stack on a railway crossing at the beginning of April. Seriously painful and couldn’t walk without a stick for 5 weeks. However, 5 days after the incident I optimistically threw my leg over the trainer.... well what do you know.... I could ride without pain :D Perfect. Only lost 5 days and spent the next 5 weeks on Zwift.

Worst month since Feb 2017 :(
177.9km with 4159m up.
Poor weather and too many commitments! Now time to pull my finger out again. I'm almost back level with my goal after being almost 1000km ahead.

End of August totals:
4072.8km 62568m up

December 2015 was the last time I didn't do 1000kms and that's because I was injured. Since Jan 13, it's the only month I've missed

Well, I can't remember exactly when I learned to ride a bike, but it was roughly 42 years ago. That gives me an unbroken run since then of around 500 months where I haven't exceeded 1000km. So my run is longer and more consistent!! :)

I've had some sub-1000km months over the last 8 years since I started keeping regular records, but overall my average per month has been over 1000km for the last 8 years. 2012 was my best year: I did just over 18,000km.

I don't know how much of my grand Pyrénées cycling plans I'll actually put into action (I fly to France tonight), but I plan to average over 600km per week for 4 weeks (if my legs are up to the challenge, anyway), with a fair bit of climbing. I think my main challenge for the 4 weeks starting Friday will be not overdoing it and injuring a leg muscle.

September and, after Amy's Grand Fondo, finally in the green for the year. Quite a few holidays this year which put me behind, but should stay ahead now.

The status bar should appear green when it updates :D

It would seem the report of your disappearance was an exaggeration. Welcome back
