AJL said:5km vertical! The Giro doesn't have anything like that (but the climbs are very steep). What's the average grade on this TdU stage?
Glad to hear it Drone! The part of my site where users can submit a route is not working correctly right now, I need to adjust it, but for now if you know of any rides/routes that you regularly ride, you can send them to bradleeduncan AT gmail DOT com and I'll post it up there. If you only have the distance of the ride, that's OK too, I can figure out the other stuff.Drone 5200 said:cbass94,
Great website. I'm going to put that to good use! I'm from North Salt Lake.
My group knows this ride as the "Marina Run". Start at the LDS conference center and go west to the Salt Lake Marina. Approx. 22 miles one way. Flat as can be. The frontage road to the Marina has zero traffic. There's a ride starting tomorrow (sat 5/6) at 8:00 a.m. You are welcome to join. Here's the link to the route.cbass94 said:If you only have the distance of the ride, that's OK too, I can figure out the other stuff.
Yeah, "only" like 7-8k of climbing. After doing that race, I now have a profound respect for stage racers. I was DEAD after that sucker. How they can race like and come back and do it again is amazing. BTW, I barely finished, I'm barely a cat 5. Narrowly. LOL.cbass94 said:Yeah, the Lotoja is another great race. Not quite as much climbing, but 200 miles, that's what does it for me!
If you live in Utah, try this race, the Wasatch 100. 26,800 feet of climbing in a 100 miles. You have to run it, though...GarbanzoBeanSnafu said:Yeah, "only" like 7-8k of climbing. After doing that race, I now have a profound respect for stage racers.
