    Personal climbing records-Front Range

    I just wanted to see what everybody personal records are for climbing some of the trails on the Front Range. These are real times, not "ride" times.

    White Ranch to bench (Belcher Hill climb) 34:10
    Falcon (To hut) 37:20
    Chinmey Gulch 49:00 *(This is the time I'm most proud of, I have never even come close to this again, I'm mostly around 51:00 minutes, but I had a guy on a Ellsworth chasing me up the hill that day)
    Betasso CW 19:40 CCW 20:30

    I have been keeping track on my wife's Garmin Forerunner 305. Please feel free to include any additional trails or climbs.

    Erik

    Was he carrying a steak knife and a fork? That guy creeps me out, but he does make me climb a little faster. I think it's the "flight" half of my fight-or-flight instinct kicking in.

    Rumor has it that Dave Weins does Falcon in the low 20's when he visits family here.

    Outa bed, 7 a.m., to go ride, after a six pack of Stone IPA the night before, definitely a PR for me!

    hmmm, let's see. To do Falcon in 21 minutes would be climbing at about 5100 vertical feet per hour. That's roughly the same as Pantani's record up Alpe d' Huez. Add in the increased rolling resistance from dirt and technical terrain...Dave's certainly a talented rider, maybe he should be doing the Tour?

    I heard JHK did in the 18's. As far as racer-goobs go, most experts pull it off in the mid to high 20's, sportos mid to low 30's. Before I got a power meter I had to use those climbs (Belcher, Falcon, Lookout, Squaw Pass) to try and guage fitness. For a quickie, I'd sometimes do Rooney lot to the top of Box-o-rocks. I think Bergen Peak is the most entertaining hill to go TT as you have to use some skillz too.

    On a good day I can do Falcon ( to the first picnic shelter) in 28 1/2 to 29 1/2 minutes. I'm a slow donkey, not a thoroughbred. In general my race times are 25 to 30% SLOWER than a Pro over the same course. I' ve known a few Expert class guys who can go under 25. Sub 22 for someone like Weins does not suprise me at all.

    I used to keep track of those two and High->Palmer->Section 16->Intemann's back when I first started riding because it helped me monitor my progression and I sucked so bad on the descents that climbing was all I had going for me. Then I figured out that the descent is the best part of the ride and now I climb those trails trying to conserve as much energy as possible so when it comes time to head downhill I have something left of my legs. Plus, you make a descent just as exhausting as an ascent and it's a lot more fun.

    Notice the "Fearsome Foursome" item has no associated time entry.. Who would want to do this?
    "Start the clock at the base of Flagstaff, do super Flagstaff, turn down, go to Sunshine end of pavement, turn around, half way down Sunshine go down Poorman road to 4-mile Canyon. Go down 4-mile Canyon to Boulder Canyon, then up Boulder Canyon to Sugarloaf, go to top mailboxes on Sugarloaf, turn down, go up Magnolia, stop the clock at the top of Magnolia."

    V6, 11c, and 38:40 to the bench on Belcher on a SS. That's with 2 stops so my heart didn't jump out of my chest. 1h 31m lap @ the 24 h of Moab SS. The rest listed are so out of my range that I'll just enjoy the banter. Other dudes, this is not stupid, it's winter, give us a break.

    My problem with comparing times is not the validity of some comments, it is where did you start and stop the watch. Take Falcon for example, do you start your time at the bathrooms? The gate? The near side of the parking lot? The far side of the parking lot? Did you stop your watch at the near side of the shelter? Three pedal strokes before? The west side of the shelter?

    That said Use 2 be Hard's times for categories seem pretty reasonable. I've don Falcon a few times under 30 and ride back of the pack expert. I've started with a person who did a 24, a now retired pro mtn biker who raced along with Weins and JHK in the 90's. I can buy into Weins low 20's, much faster then that I hope they have doping control at the top.

    Depends on the time of year and who the instigators are for me. I don't often ride directly up the chutes, but it usually takes 17-19 minutes from the lot off of cheyenne. Buckhorn from the start of the single track to the overlook is 13(occasionally) -16 minutes(typically).

    A quick note on the falcon times there needs to be an * by the times as those were pre sanitization. Falcon was the only one of those that i really timed and tried to better. My best was 32.02 on the geared bike, what three years ago when i used to ride that. Haven't timed on the ss. But think about this Rex Patrick's best was under 31 and that was with one leg!!

    that is humbling

    Guys, it winter relax. I just started this thread because I was curious. I'm not the fastest guy in the world, I was just curious to see where my "dick" compared to everybody else. I mountain bike for fun, not to see who gets up the mountain the quickest.

    I had no clue people could go that fast up a hill. Low 20's is amazing for Falcon. I always start my timing at the parking lots. This is not an exact science and I don't do to race myself. I have just been playing with my wifes GPS. She uses to train for marathons. I always use real time not ride time.

    Bill Hasn't updated that site in a loong time. Plenty of those records have been bested. Super Walker goes under 2 hrs now and a lap of Hall is at 46 min. I know of a few others as well that are now faster than these.

    I always use the fence just past the bathrooms to the shelter. When I was a sandbagger in sport, I was hitting 31- 32. I hit a 28 flat last spring and about cried I was so happy....or maybe I was just about to pass out.

    My question is where do you start and finish lookout? I assume you start at the big pillars, but where is the finish...the pulloff to buffalo bill, or something before the short flat/downhill stretch?

    Of course this brings up a parallel train of thought, how fast can you shuttle to the top of Apex? Ever seen Snowskilz drive? That guy gets everyone car sick.

    I don't log very many times these days but Belcher to the bench on a SS is under 25 minutes or something like that and that includes the time for me to mess up the rock garden and walk EVERY TIME. Haha. One day I will get it going up.

    I tend to just use times as a personal benchmark of my fitness but I really don't care to race on trails with other people around lest I be lumped in with those XC weenie geeks. I'm an enduro geek dontchaknow.

    I was sorta kidding, but would have made a comment irrespective of gender; mostly because I find internet chest/booby beatin' a little silly. Perhaps I should have said pissing contest so not to offend my buddy h00ters.

    I must say I find it hilarious that h00ters seems to think telling someone to "shut it", on an internet forum, will have the desired effect. He must be new to this.

    There is enough good natured misogyny thrown around here that us mens have no place to complain about an occasional "dickwaving" jab.

    Edit-back on topic, I never time myself.

    Every year I try to make it to the top of CHimney Gulch from the bottom under 45 minutes. One year I did just that with my 43lb VPFree. A week after that, I took my wife's bike and made it up just under 35.

    Nothing wrong with weewee waving or boobthumping. I'm going to time myself this year. If I end up getting up Falcon in 35 mins, I'll throw a party. I'll time the others, especially Belcher. I will not time Bergen Peak- that one makes Becher and Falcon seem easy. If I make it up Bergen without dismounting more than 5 times, I'll throw another party.

    One thing I'd like to know is which bench on Belcher are people measuring to? Seems like (and hopefully for what's left of my ego...) we're mostly using the lower one?

    Hey, Myss A:
    I didn't find the original thread "competitive" in any way at all -- the OP is just excited about riding, interested in seeing how he progresses, and being rather humble and nice about his own times. To me it was a nice enough post and it got ME all excited to time myself on some of those climbs!!! I cannot wait to get my times up all of those hills and more ... does that necessarily mean that I'm out there waving things around or pounding on my chest!?!? I don't think it does ... but that is my opinion;-)


    lalalaalaaa.... see you all out on the trails, boiis and gurls.
