    Worked for the footies today. The guy that stopped me from adding another 800 took this pic.

    Sun tomorrow!

    Haven't ridden all week and have been itching to get in some miles! Doing a Kennedy Rd, Hicks, Mt. Umhumum Rd ride tomorrow (to the no trespassing signs at ~3000 ft.) Leaving from the Los Gatos Unlimited Parking lot between University and N. Santa Cruz Ave. Rolling about 8:30 if anyone wants to join. Should still be some snow up there!

    Amazing job those that road today and climbed. Every time I looked at the outside temp at ~300 feet it said 43 degrees and pissing rain.

    Did Round 2 of the Grasshopper Adventure Series in West Sonoma County - cold, but no rain! And just under 70 miles / 7000 feet to add to my total

    Was a nice, albeit FREEZING cold and snowy day up St. Joes - Montevina - Kennedy Trail - Dogmeat, with rensho, urban turban, and… sorry, forgot the other three blokes’ names—I indicated I suck at remembering peoples’ names (let alone their MTBR.com forum handles). From there, rensho and I attacked another 3,000+ feet of altitude gain up to the top of Soda Springs Road… he and I amassed more than 8,000 feet of climbing each! I must admit that I took the wrong bike on such an intensive climb endeavour, but round-trip to/from my house I still managed to pull in more than 50 miles. Urban turban took some photos, mind sharing them? Rensho and I took some shots of the deep-ass snowfall at the top of Soda Springs with my crappy cellphone, thanks Rensho for being so patient while I lugged my tired butt up there with my sub-50 pound beast of a bike. I will now share some of the pictures:

    Thought about that today and wondered if you had snow on the course. Wasn't up for a 2 hour drive for a questionable ride. I rode the Old Caz ride last month and had about as much fun as is possible to have on a bike. Definitely in for Super Sweetwater, and maybe a few more

    Wow you guys went beyond the call of duty today! Impressive climbing.

    Wish we had some climbs to match the ones you have...Bout the longest climb in SLO is 3k feet and then you have to turn around

    It was cold out there this morning. I got snowed on 2x... Kennedy and Montevina. Good riding with you guys. Put up ~4400 feet of climbing before my thumbs froze up completely. Hoping to get out again this weekend.

    Oh yeah, you were one of the other three guys. Great job, thanks again for the ride, and great conversation.

    It was definitely a challenging ride. I wasn't exactly prepared for all of the snow we encountered. By the time we finished descending from Kennedy I was getting pretty worried about my left foot, which I had lost feeling in for about an hour. I took my sock off to see that things were looking very purple.. a little too purple for me to feel comfortable with. So I called it a day.

    Here is a picture of the group at the top of El Sereno. I had a great time riding with you guys. From left to right: Leopold Porkstacker, JorgeTheMagician, rensho, and A.S.K.

    I've been uploading my max 5 free rides a month but I think this may make it fun enough to pull the trigger on an annual membership. Especially if one of the codes in this thread works.

    Joined the club and KOM group and added 19K or so footies.. have a bunch more I can upload if I pay up.

    Don't. You're already #1 of the mtbr group using only the 5 free rides/month:
    http://app.strava.com/komchallenge/c...sults/february

    If you pay up and upload all your rides, nobody will have a chance to get even close .
    (fwiw, I'm also on the el cheapo 5 uploads/month for the time being)

    Snow is fun on our mountains

    Hope to get in a bigger ride tomorrow. Here was today's adventure (Montebello/Saratoga Gap) should you like pictures:

    Snow on top of Montebello

    Hey, we broke a million in the 2011 totals...that's like taller than Everest or something.

    Ahh Wwwaaaahhhhhhhhhh............

    I lost the whole first ride today and 2000 footies in a file corruption thingy! I'm really hoping Strava can help fix it. That would move me to second spot for February. (for a moment or two)

    Just couldn't do the whole couch thing so I went for a ride. Got 3000 more feet in an effort to get to the summit of Mt Diablo this afternoon. It was kinda fun to watch what happens when everyone goes to the snow. The road was jammed with cars, but the simple bicycle easily cut through all the stopped traffic and didn't even need a parking place. Only by the time I got there the road was closed at Juniper so footies got maxed early. Oh well, there's always tomorrow.

    As for more 3 month free codes I am trying. My "contact" is out of town though he did tell me he should be able to get more.

    as soon as I have them I will post that I do so you can PM for them. And for those who did PM and are waiting I will send to you directly first.

    In the meantime I am trying to find a friggin climb that is anything like what you guys have been riding. Would have to do lap after lap of same thing to get close!

    OK better late than never. I joined the mtbr.com team and added my three rides from this week, That should put us in second place. I had already deleted the SuperBowl Sunday ride up Mt Hamilton from the Garmin Edge500, but is still on my Garmin Connect. Can I upload rides from Garmin Connect to Strava as well?

    I see how addicting this Strava is. I already paid to upgrade to the unlimited plan. I already got a few top 10 finishes on some segments. Is it possible to see the results on Strava by age groups? I want to see how I compare to other 50+ men.

    You can export the ride from Garmin Connect and then simply browse to it in Strava and upload it.

    Well, the freezing temperatures and added difficulty of trudging through the snow and slop sure made it more challenging!

    Sadly, the Peloton is sure to catch and swallow this gung-ho rider. Will get in a final ride today but conference in Palm Springs all this week with very cold rain later in the week spells my doom. Go get em' team MT(and a touch of road...not from me)BRrrr.

    (PS. Strava still hasn't fixed my 45k ft that I posted in Jan but isn't showing up for our team)

    With all those steep, loose ascents, climbing in SLO is no joke! That said, I've had a few pretty good climbing (and and even better descending) days down there:

    It's almost like trying to stay with a strong peloton in road bike racing. My legs are SCREAMING for mercy - but if I ease up at all, I'm going to get dropped! And no matter what I do, I still feel like a big wimp compared to Porkstacker and that 8000 foot day in the snow with that 50 lb bike...

    I can't think of a more fun way to prep for the Boggs 8 hour

    You’re not a wimp, just not insane/masochistic like me.

    ZenTurtle has been logging a lot of rides and many elevation feet of climbing on Strava, but has not joined the mtbr.team yet. Is he on Team Wrong Way?

Garmin sayd if this last fix doesn't work, I need to send it back for which I need to wait 14 days to get back. Argh part 2.

    We are inching closer to taking the win for this month. The forecast this week looks to be cold but rideable weather in the Bay Area, and I have plans to make this last week count.

    We got a couple mentions in the blog/twitter coverage:

    OK team, here's the deal. All you all have to do ride every opportunity you get. Oh, and make opportunities. .
    If you see someone without a smile, give them yours

    Sure, but don't forget to climb. It's about feet not miles! Enjoy!

    I have plans to attempt 10,000+ feet more before the end of this week… today and tomorrow no school for my kids so that sort of cuts into my altitude gaining plans. Going to have to stack a few days in a row, perhaps do Kennedy to St. Joe’s and some multiple circle loops up/down Shannon Road and Kennedy Road… or something.

    If they are comparing mountain and road feet climbed mtn feet should be more than road. So, for example, mountain feet should be times 1.5 or at least 1.3. Just can't compare to road...

    Could you use a smart phone app in the meantime?

    If the weather forecast holds, next weekend could be a challenge to get much climbing in. No problem riding, but when there is snow ag 1,500', and roads are closed, its just hard to climb.

    Totally disagree with some of the posters on road climbing vs. dirt. I can get to the Diablo summit on fire road in about half the time it takes me on the road. Its just shorter. Technical single track is a different story, but dirt alone doesn't make it more difficult.

    Holy smokes...where'd this Mr. Crash come from!?

    My work pays for my Blackberry...not buying into a second phone. Biggest issue is I have to go to a conference for 4 days and no bikes are joining. I might do an early morning ride as the 405 does last 2 hours...gotta get 40k+ for the month at least, eh? Bought an Egde 500 today just for kicks (arrives in three days). March will be strong!

    Charge on team!
