    This is basically all Strava stuff anyway. No cool club stuff I hope. I started it up for totally personal reasons to prod myself to go back for those two numbers that I could not quite get. A 20 to the tree and a 40 at the top. Since I'm not fast.... I figured it would be a middle of the road climber challenge for loads of riders. Come over and pin it !

    Don't just try- do. I know you can climb like the wind and this will be in your pocket in no time. sub 20 to the tree is so much harder than the rest of the ride. I only had about 10 seconds to spare and I tried to make time where I could. This truly is 20 mins of pure torture.

    If Rox goes and pins it I'm guessing he will hit 19:36/35:38.

    Nice work guys! I am looking forward to a time when I can take the Mensocycle for a sprint up to the top to see if I can get anywhere near a 20/40.

    Funny thought occurred to me. I used to think Strava DH was dangerous. Now I see the climbing is an equal foe. Not looking forward to my heart kicking my chest for 40 minutes (or less).

    I am getting close to trying this bugger...just waiting on pedals.

    Good luck on the quest. You will make the sub 40 in under 10 tries. Dr. Marshall do you concur ? Dr. Marshall..... DR. MARSHALL ! Catch Me If You Can - Do You Concur - YouTube

    Here is the real KOM for the people with short attention span. The threshold is 2 minutes of pain. It is the first climb of Kennedy!!

    Haha- it would be bad if I made that segment but I didn't. Thanks FC for the present. I haven't made a Strava segment yet but have ridden a few that need to be cleaned up. Not sure what people see when they see these but there are some crazy ones out there. Just like MIssion Peak. One of the segments starts outside the gate that you have to open! Come on people, start your segments at reasonable points! I can gain a few seconds just by asking a hiker to hold the gate open. It is the little things that make up seconds on the course. I am still loving Strava though. I have never ridden this much or this hard.

    20-40-20 plan

    Since this is all about senseless stupid climbing, I think the challenge could be expanded a bit: I propose the 20-40-20 plan: the goal is to hit sub-20 to the tree, sub-40 to the top, then sub-20 on the Dog Meat climb (after you've gone up the rollers and descended Limekiln, of course), in a single ride. I may have to go hide some choice bottles of beer on the summit as reward/carrots for prospective finishers...

    PS Paul, with regards to the Strava segments: in their default map-type it's kind of hard to accurately define the start and end points of the segments because of the limited zoom; in satellite mode you can zoom in more and it works better, but since most people don't know or bother, a lot of segments are ill-defined - mostly by accident.

    I can add your plan as a revision to the post.... for the hard core climbers. The 20-40-20 climbing crotchstompery plan ?

    Jeez! Nice work and killer time on both! I completely understand fizzling out after pushing so hard to the tree. Do you use GPS or stopwatch? I use GPS on every ride now and have forgotten to start my watch on many occasions. The GPS makes it a no brainer most of the time provided you finish the segment you started.

    i just use my watch. With shifters, brake levers, suspension adjustment and remote for my seatpost, last thing I want is more controls on my handlebars!
