    Can they be added once my membership expires in March? If so I would love to get a few extra months in there! I bought a year membership last March.

    Reading all this crap about you sons of guns out riding is driving me crazy! My work week has really gotten in the way of things. So tempting to call in sick and ride but I know exactly what will happen. I will be riding and run into my commander and he say, "I thought you were sick today?" Then I stutter and try to think of something fast and completely fail! My poor little GPS is sitting on the kitchen counter just staring at me when I get home at night. It looks so sad. I am going to try and make up for some of this on friday. Might go to a few places that day. Maybe St JOes in morning, then to fremont older and maybe wrap it up at Alum Rock park. i am determined to try for some PR's or KOM times at Fremont older.

    The trick is not to call in sick but to call in "sorry". Lets do this together: "Uh, ya, this is (your name here). I'm sorry I'm not going to be coming in today. I'll be in tomorrow". See, no lie at all! Nothing to cover for. And you are truly sorry you are not there, right?

    Sparky and codepoet- I like where your heads are at! All sounds good in theory anyway. Maybe if I get too stressed I will take a day and climb 10k feet.

    I ride pretty much every morning in Los Gatos, road and MTN, usually rolling around 6AM.
    That 1hr of riding makes a big difference in my long day at work... and sleep is overrated anyway.

    Marco I hear ya on that. I have been riding with a group and we have been out at 6am on St Joes this winter. I have never been so cold on a ride before. We also been riding at Fremont older on sunday mornings at the same time. I can't remember being so happy to start climbing just to warm up. Then the descents come and I cringe because of the windchill factor. The wife had this past week for vacation and I volunteered to take the daughter to school. Your right about sleep, sometimes it just gets in the way!

    Any reason we're just keeping this to the Norcal MTBR folks?

    Looks like Strava will eventually regulate the club size for the challenge since there currently is no restriction.

    http://support.strava.com/discussion...and-club-sizes

    My guess is that only the top X number of riders in the club will have their elevation count towards the total. A competition within the competition.

    I'll take 'em! 4000 foot climb of Mt Diablo in the wind, rain and snow. Road to the top and the parking lot were closed since they were covered in snow and drifting hail. Lost traction just short of the top in ICE! I always wanted to do that but I'm pretty sure I won't do it again.

    Ya, I know "pics or it didn't happen!" I shot a couple with the cell phone but I can't get them to show up here. I need "mtbr images for dummies" or something. Dang!

    You and Leopold took one for the team today. It's really crappy out there. I had planned to go out and do a big ride after work, but I'm taking a "rest day."

    It was cold, miserable, and windy (one gust almost blew me off my bike speeding down Bernal hill ), but I did it anyway. I was wet like a drowned rat when I got home. Had to hose myself down with the garden hose, the hose water felt warm.

    Sparkyjay for sure gets the “Iron Nuts” medal for his achievement today!

    I think the group that is in second place must be feeling us on the back of their necks as they sure did throw down some climbing yesterday.

    I imagine they will limit the size of the groups eventually too...but until quantity certainly has a quality of its own I posted something in the Socal forum few days ago but pretty much nobody seemed that interested.

    Maybe if you posted something Francois?

    Or maybe the dumbass award! That isn't something I would recommend, or repeat anytime soon. I was soaked to the bone and the last hour or two were pretty miserable, but by the time I got home I could feel most of my toes again!

    I am hoping to do the same ride again tomorrow… no, wait, it’s already Friday! WTF am I still doing awake??? According to the hourly weather report at Accuweather.com, it’s going to be pissing down metric buttloads of rain until Saturday… another drenched ride. But, all in the name of adding a mere 1,600+ feet of climbing in the name of the team. If it keeps raining like this and doesn’t let up, I’ve already committed—told my wife that I WILL be doing this same ride EVERY DAY until the last day of the month—28th of February!

    Hose ’er down, use the air compressor to get the water off, re-lube the key areas, take that fucker out the next day and RIDE IT HARD!!!

    I'm determined to make up some elevation tomorrow for my laziness this week. Will be doing some sort of 40 mile flavored ride in Los Gatos tomorrow with 6,500 - 7000 feet of climbing. Anyone is welcome to join, but it will be a moderate pace with a couple bailout options.

    Up Montevina > down El Sereno > up Kennedy > down to Lexington > up and down Soda Springs and maybe a bonus lap at St. Joes for the extra footies.
