    What about a little competition within the team? Francis: there's a close battle for first place among our top 5. I jumped in at 14th place with 18000 feet so far.

    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:

    With 11,000+ footies so far this weekend (6,800 at the Grasshopper and 4,300 yesterday), I figured I'd improve on my 5th place ranking. But with everyone else stepping up their game and a strong newcomer at the front, I'm right where I started!

    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?

    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...

    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!
