    Ran into pmarshall and brazilian climber on the trai today. Congrats to both are in order. pmarshall got the sub 20 and B. climber gets the 20/40 combo......on accident. Does it still count if he is not racing/trying for it ? I have good news on my run also. My lungs finally stopped hurting before I got home to Santa Clara. "It's on" will no longer be in my vocabulary. 20 and 40 under club !-1019111327a.jpg

    I made it I swear!

    I did make it today but Strava has me at 37 mins for the ride up. Sure felt faster than that! Ok so the problem is the Strava segment goes about 50 feet past the tree. I started my watch right at the Kennedy gate and stopped my watch when I actually touched the tree with my arm. I had a stopwatch time of 19:50. My previous best time was 21:48 to the tree on Strava. I pretty much gave it my all and gassed out at the tree. Thinking back, I should have kept going but was excited to see I beat the 20 mins and figured I earned my rest time rolling around in the dirt. Who is next to tame this biatch! Your an uber stud if you can do both on the same ride.

    Ancient Rascal- I forgot to put this in my previous post. Nice talking to you and Brazilian Climber today. I now wish I would have kept going and taken some time to recover continuing on the way up. I will leave that for the next ride. I told you that I was glad you started this quest but now I think I hate you! That was freakn' hard man! I started really fast and paid for it about half way to the tree. I did concentrate on every section that was not to steep to gear down and push with my birdie legs to keep pumping. I had my vital signs checked by a nurse the other day and had a heart rate of 40bpm. My true resting HR is actually a bit lower. Doesn't mean a thing because I am still a wuss. I checked my HR monitor after today's effort and hit a max of 195!! I am not sure how I am not dead yet. Either it will go to low and I will quietly pass away, or I will die on Kennedy in a sweat heap of a mess. Either way, I will make good Mt. Lion food. Hope you get the magical sub 20 soon. Brazilian Climber is super fast.

    Thanks man ! Great to see the both of you for a nice long B.S. session. That damn tree run is worse than going to the top. Pure torture. Gonna be a long time before I get it. I need 10% + to get there. I can't believe how tired I feel from such a short ride. Round # 1 goes to the oak tree. I have said for many years....I am gonna die trying to make the face as I used to call dogmeat. Crap now.....maybe it will be the other side trying for a 20/40. I am on it again next week. You broke some records and some folks's PR's. Dude.....That's messed up ! I'm sure glad I didn't do that....wink wink !

    20 to the tree? That's a tough one. Note that the Potty to Tree Strava segment actually ends at the right turn well past the tree, as Paul learned to his chagrin.

    I think 22 minutes to the tree is an awesome achievement and should get you at the top in under 40. If you ride only to the tree as Marco did you can go a faster, but 10% faster is unlikely.

    Take er down a notch. I am gonna try @ 1.68 to one. 32x19 will work for a 26er. You need a few more rear or a few less crank teeth eh?

    Yeah the SS will be hard. Your going to easily accomplish this the first time. Nice KOM at the Gap dude. After I do a ride like this I can't imagine how to go as fast as some of you guys. Go do it.

    There is also El Sereno across the town. Under 30 looks about right...Marshal...you are right there at 30 something.

    To join you have to climb it at night and your bike has to weigh at least 30 pounds.

    NO NO NO sir! I did some checking and went off my speed and heart rate data. I was at 13mph when I hit the tree and that was at 19:46 according to Garmin. So if I kept going 13mph it would have only taken me 5 seconds to reach the end of the segment. 19:51 sounds good to me. Thank you very much

    I could make this one since my last time up I didn't go as fast as I could have. Now the under 30 up mission peak is out of my reach. Why are we doing this again? Oh yeah for personal glory that nobody cares about. Does it stop me from participating? Hell no because I am an attention whore.

    I was totally messing with you of course...... I am a kidder you know ! I suppose you noticed the 11 seconds I wanted added would put you in @ 20.01 making a non sub 20. So you are first to go sub twenty on this thread and Brazilian climber is first 20/40 combo. fair enough eh ?
