    Everyone's welcome to join. The full Soda Springs climb is ~1hr and 2400ft. We'll do a casual pace and try to do a no drop ride. Bring warm gloves and an extra layer for the DH.

    Soda Springs Rd. is like a good belgian beer; fairly smooth, doesn't go higher than 11-12% and there are some fruit notes up on top.

    I heard someone will be there attempting 4 loops. We'll cheer her/him on.

    All I have to add is 339 ft for the weekend. Was at the first round of the Kenda Cup in San Diego and there was so much snow on the regular course that they had us ride this little CX-style circuit around the start/finish area. Unfortunately, the course was almost entirely devoid of anything resembling elevation change.

    I figured out how to message all 75 members. Basically, an admin (urban, squashyo) can post a note. The note is displayed on the club page and an email is sent to all members.

    I sent a message to everyone reminding them to join the KOM challenge.

    Don't pop the cork yet but keep it on standby.

    OK, so here's how it went:

    (door opens)
    Wife: Hey, your home early?
    Squashyo: Heyyyyy. Wow, you look amazing! Are you losing weight or something? Ya know, we should start up date night again!
    Wife: (Stares...long silence)
    Squashyo: Say, I was thinking of going for a super quick ride. Did you get a haircut, you really look terrific!
    Wife: (long pause) Dude, you went for a ride this morning. You seriously have a problem...
    Squashyo: (Grovel, pander, whine)
    Wife: Just be home by 6.

    Wasn't going to end the month on 48,500. Hit Kennedy loop...50k+ for the month. Thanks Strava and MTBR for increasing my monthly average by 10k...please rain soon...I need a break.

    I was halfway down Mt Eden road when I realized it was you and your wife adding on to the feet of climbing. I had to hurry back to get to work after my rather long lunch time ride to do my share for the team today. Glad you're able to ride again. Within a week you'll be back in your old shape. J.L.

    Really wanted a rest day today but took one for the team and put 4400 more footies into the total. Not that we need it - looks like we're pulling away, unless Mission has something in reserve.

    Next month is going to be brutal

    You guys are unbelievable....in a good way! I am inspired to ride a LOT more and hit the climbs more too. I have no idea how you all do the footies you do but I will do my best to add to it in the coming months.

    I have been a Strava member since they got started (or close to it) and I think this competition is going to drive you people insane!!! Hahaha. If I didnt know any better I would say you are all a little competitive....just a tad!!!!

    Only got in 3500 today but it was all singletrack. Barely made it to work on time.

    As for Strava codes...they are all gone for now...I might be able to swing some more next month but I think my source is getting a bit sour at me for asking so much

    Also Francois...not sure if possible but maybe next month MTBR can put up some swag for our own KOM and QOM or something. Not that the guys at the top need any more motivation...they all crazy.

    Dude,
    Once the weather turns for the better, I'm gonna drag your butt out for more evening rides with me. It's a lot easier to motivate when you have someone pushing you.

    I just had to get one more ride in for the month. I couldn't end the month so close to 40,000', so I put in a Hwy 9 climb today to put me over. Not to bad considering that I had the flu for one week and couldn't ride at all plus the cold/wet weather the last few weeks (I had to ride in the snow on Saturday on Skyline to get from 9 to 84).

    I have a feeling I'm gonna be doing a lot of elevation in the coming months. I think it's gonna be a brutal summer

    Love this....good stuff. Thanks for the laugh...I've been there more than a few times.


    BTW - I checked the KOM Challenge FAQ's and everyone has until two days after the end of the month to upload rides, so this thing really isn't over until 3/3. Looks like the team has a bit of a cushion right now, but I imagine Mission will keep recruiting others that haven't signed up yet.

    "You can upload rides for a particular month up to two days after the end of the month. So rides for this February, for example, will be accepted into the competition so long as they are uploaded by the end of March 2nd."

    WTF???? HOW.......just HOW do you climb that much in a single day?? I either need to get my hands on some PED's or just give my bicycles away! I dont think I could ever do that - especially on a week day.

    I dont even know if I could do that in a week!!!

    You don't know it, but you recruited me to get you out and riding more. You think you can drag me into this addiction and come away unscathed?

    Even with me on my 2nd lap, him on his 4th, he's pretty fast. Good job man. Must be tough to get out of the van to head up Soda for the 4th time! Yow.

    Thanks sparkyJay. I'm hoping this spring is a lot nicer (drier) than last so I can get back into the groove. This was a pretty slow month for me, so hopefully things will pick up soon

    Nice work on the Belgian bar ends! I have them (from Affligem Triples) on both my bikes:




    Anyhow I managed another 5,498 feet today. I felt great; could have gone and done Soda Springs for an additional 3,000 feet if there was a way for me to refill one of my water bottles, and perhaps had another 500 or so calories of snacks to munch on. All in all, I feel as though my February contributions were sufficient, all things (*cough* heavy-ass bike with 9 pound rear wheel *cough*) considered, and also missing one week due to the flu. Tomorrow I will aim high—if Santa Teresa is open tomorrow, I will just loop up and down and up and down and up and down all day long, as they have full restrooms and a place to fill up on water with. I could in theory rack up 8,000 feet before getting tired.

    In summary, I hope this is it— I hope we did it. We sure rode our asses off. Let’s make every month matter. Unemployed people such as myself have the upper hand, but don’t let that be the only reason to ride.

    GOOD WORK, EVERYONE!

    last rides for February

    Had to go big today after coming up short a few times this week. Got 7000+ on a double summit adventure on Mt Diablo. Not quite dead yet, I changed bikes and went into Briones searching for more footies. Found another 1800+ and then just hit the wall. Cold and tired, I went home before they even closed up for the night.

    OK, thank God that February is over and in the books. There is no way that I can keep up that pace for another month. I will continue to log my rides in the competition, but I don't plan to take every opportunity to ride. I would really like to see the names at the top of the chart rotate somewhat each month just to keep things fresh.

    The mtbr juggernaut is really gaining steam! So who has what it takes to make a run for the top of our chart in March? Step right up and see if you have the right stuff. I wish all competitors well and may the most determined rider prevail.
    If you see someone without a smile, give them yours
