    Nice job eh! Dunno what the weather has been like where you live, but when I did my KOM for March for the MTBR team, the weather was cool, and sometimes cold and raining. I found it easier to belt out the footies in the cooler weather.

    I ride year long and a chilly summer night compare to
    a single digit winter blizzard is a breeze I agree, riding in
    colder temperatures is easier, because your heart doesn't beat
    fast so you burn less energy. Go for the Strava 150k climbing event!!

    Is anybody paying attention to the KOM contest anymore? I defected from MTBR and joined RoadBikeReview's club for the contest since MTBR doesn't need me to win, and I'd like to help the other forum break high into the top 10. Anyone else who is a member of both want to do the same?

    I haven't paid much attention in a few months. A few local friends are campaigning for KOM help, but I haven't done anything yet. No one would miss my footies, but I don't know if it would affect historic results.

    I stopped caring when they started making up rules to prevent us from winning every month

    when we had twice as many riders as any other team in the field...where's the fun in that. Sure was fun in the beginning though...I actually wanted to climb for a change. :0

    Yesterday, I missed my PR by one second at Cora Older. I missed Colin's KOM by many seconds.

    I pledged that I would not drink a beer until I broke my PR and I would not have a Pliny until I beat Colin.

    I just uploaded and I am holding back the Pliny tears. Sorry my buddy Colin.



    This one is hard to beat... 12 mph climb with 4 switchbacks.

    I just signed up for Strava a few weeks ago...I don't see myself getting any climb or overall trophies any time soon...but its pretty cool to mess around with.

    The iPhone app has worked good.

    Dude If I've got KOM's you can get KOM's. Just upload your rides and see... Many obvious climbs are still relatively empty of rides in the MTB/gravel grinder side of things. Not Skeggs of course, but I'm always surprised that stuff I've been riding for years doesn't have segments.

    Right. MTBR is so far out in front, I wanted to join another club to recover the energy that we had when we first started.

    Maybe interest might increase here if there's more competition with Mission Cycling too

    We are losing the overall 2011 climbing competition to a single person. He put in one serious ride... Bike Ride Profile | 112 miles near Louisville | Times and Records | Strava

    Right at mile 79 he goes up 2.6 million miles into space.
