    Paul: have fun going up Sierra a few times tonight. I'd join you, but for a dinnner party.
    I rode up Calaveras Road at lunch time to make some feet for the team. That's an easier climb than Sierra Road; maybe you should do that 6 times?

    I can join you. When will you be starting? My gearing is slightly taller with 39/27. We'll see if I can make that 3rd climb

Hope my light holds up for that amount of time. Anybody care to suffer with me? I am really wishing I had a 34/28. I only have a 25 in back and that makes for a lot of standing while climbing. I am purely going for elevation and not time. Going to be chilly up there!

    Alright we have a taker! I am thinking about starting at 8pm. I ride from my house in downtown. If your up to going that late, you can meet me right at the base of the climb. The 3rd might be a bit of a challenge for me as well. I am thinking it will take approximately 30 mins for the first climb and then guessing it will get slower. Yeah, your gearing is going to be tougher for sure. PM me if your interested and I will give you my cell.

    Yeah I just finished reading a Lance Armstrong book where he talked about doing this huge climb twice because he didn't "connect" with it the first time. I am inspired to do this twice and the third will just be pure stupidity. I also have been bogged down due to family commitments and things so I am making up some elevation for not being able to ride. JL- are you working over near my hood now? Hope to catch you sometime for a lunch ride if your up to some company.

    Yep, I'm in the McCarthy Ranch office complex in Milpitas. Calavares, Sierra or Mission Peak at lunch time are good options to help the team. I'll pm you my work email so we can plan a lunch time ride for next week, when the (snow?) storm has blown over.

    Woohoo!!! First time clearing the wall on Kennedy… on that fat bloated turd of a bike with the 9 pound rear wheel! I honestly believe, though that the steep-ass rollers further up toward Woods Road are harder:

    Was beautiful up there today, not too cold. A few small spots of snow in the shade.

    You guys are freaking amazing man, I dont know how you do it! I did manage to get my buddy signed up and his mileage moved us into 3rd overall for the YTD and put us within 30K of 1st place for Feb!!! Since I cant add any real value in the climbing dept, I felt it was my duty to recruit someone who could!

    Alright, so JL thinks it is imperative that I get in on this, so he is getting me a Garmin and a Strava account. I do a lot of flattish road mile, but I do A LOT of flattish road miles, so I should be good for 40k a month easily. The thing is being ordered from the LBS in Cupertino, so I'll start logging my footies in March.

    Great job! We are so close now 7K to go. Mission can probably feel us breathing down their necks. I predict we will jump into first tomorrow. Rain, snow or shine.. I'm riding.

    I'm enjoying the relentless way we are reeling them in. The sneak attack would be quick and devastating, but I'm sure what we are doing at this point feels more like a slow agonizing death for them.

    Just finished the 3650ft. Sorry I missed your note UrbanTurban.
    The KOM contest is really for 2011, so I'm really not that worried about winning Feb., unless you guys really want to win Feb.

    Strava wouldn't let me create my own one-man, ironic cycling club, so I joined in with you guys. Added 91,585 ft for Jan & Feb. Mostly road riding, but I snuck in a few mtn rides.

    .. and only 6K behind Mission Cycling for the year - sure you guys don't want to post those climbs you've been holding onto just to see us hit #1?

    [edit: nevermind - was looking at wrong page or something - we are still 169K' away for the year, although I know my January rides aren't in the January total]

    Sierra x 3 = 5550ft

    pmarshall and I both posted, 5550ft each! We'll see if the first place holds! Might have to put in a rain ride this weekend if Mission uploads new rides

    Snow tires.

    Get out a old set of knobbies and a whole lot of short screws and prepare for the weekend. Putting a set of "Mr. Tuffies" between the tires and the tube never hurts either.

    Or just run the fattest tires you have tubeless at super low pressures. I moved from the SF Bay to Denver about 1.5 yrs ago and I quickly learned about snow riding. I have done quite a few snow rides on my SS this year and I have found on my 29ers that running 2.4 Mtn Kings or 2.4 Racing Ralphs tubeless at +/- 18-19 lbs front and 20-21 lbs rear (I go about 165-170 lbs) works quite well. No worries about blowing tires off my Archs or Crests as I'm not really railing corners in snow anyway.

    Guys...not only are we on pace to crush the KOM competition, we are also on pace to have the highest views/posts for a Norcal forum for 2011. We are still a ways away from anything Mike V., Free stuff, and 'who's better, Dhers or XCers'? KEEP CLIMBING and KEEP POSTING. We can do this!

    Remember if the snow level drops to 500 feet and this keeps you from the big hills, you can always ride up a local hill 10 times instead. Mt Eden Road anyone?

    Not true. I'm with Marco and still a TWW holdout. Do any of you know what the prize is at the end of the year? I know for January they gave the winning team $100 for a keg. They've got one hell of a marketing strategy right now, that's for sure. I just wish I had the time to get out and ride more.

    Marco: I noticed your time up Calaveras Road yesterday. Well done! You put down a good time, but I'll beat you soon. Francis is right; this Strava thing is dangerous.

    Dear Strava,
    Please include a DEN-SJC round trip ticket so I may attend the Feb mtbr victory party.

    Thanks,

    Competition is certainly not over yet. Remember that Mission Cycling has something like a 150 members but only 50 are signed up for KOM. If the rest of them signed up it could be scary how many feet they put up.

    On that front I have more codes for 3 months free Strava. Send me a PM if you need one.

    Hopefully I will help with some more feet this weekend...rode trainer yesterday and felt guilty the whole time

    Yes, as soon as the trails dry out let's ride up Mission Peak at lunch with the Rensho, Paul and others in the area. We should start a separate thread for that.

    BTW, stupid KOM, stupid STRAVA, stupid Marco, stupid me : I just rode up Calaveras Road again to try to beat Marco's time and add ~1700 feet to our KOM lead. It was drizzling on the way up, but raining hard and miserably wet and cold on the way down. Haven't uploaded this ride yet to Strava. It's still better than OkieDokie on his trainer :-)

    Wow!!! #1!!! When I found out last night we’re at the top, I decided to see if I could manage a recovery ride after yesterday’s 5,626 foot climb… so today I managed a 4,203 foot “recovery” ride up Kennedy and St. Joe’s. Amazed my body doesn’t hurt too much, once again I only have one bike for riding the trails with, and it’s that heavy-ass 47.8 pound beast with the 9 pound rear wheel.

Amazed my body doesn’t hurt too much, once again I only have one bike for riding the trails with, and it’s that heavy-ass 47.8 pound beast with the 9 pound rear wheel.
    Jeeze Pork! Enough about yer heavy assed wheel already. Oh, wait, whuzzat? Nevermind. You're putting up more big rides than I am, aren't you? Ooopsie. Maybe you've got another one of those heavy-azz big-ride wheels laying around there for me?

    I threw down for the team today with another mile of vertical up on Diablo. I sure hope the weather is really super terrible tomorrow so I can't ride. I kind of think that's the only way to break this strava spell. Anybody else smell the black magic?

    My only “steroid” is being unemployed; the only thing that brings me happiness (so it seems) is going on rides, and the out-of-the-saddle uphill stuff seems to fit the bill for me. I am hoping (weather permitting) to belt another 3,000 feet out tomorrow, we’ll see what happens though. I was thinking earlier today (while going up the wall) that if I had a “normal” mountain bike (much less than 40 pounds) perhaps I could manage 16,000 feet of ascent per week without having to work too hard.

    How many riders in the top ten are working? Finally, an advantage for the unemployed.

    Unfair advantage, but I'm happy you are on my team. I was complaining the other day about how I can't keep up with you retired and unemployed guys. I was planning to ride tonight, but by the time I got home it was already raining and 43 degrees outside.

    Sorry to hear that man. I feel bad joking about it now! I have been there so I know how hard it can be. If its any consolation you are clearly super fit and I wish I was 1/10th as strong as you were on the climbs!
