Finished this evening, glad it’s over for another year, but now have quite a few hills I enjoy more, as going up them has been getting easier; the descents have been getting faster as well, although my arms started to give out on the Holme Moss to Woodhead Pass today.Posted 3 years agoshedbrewedMember
Club run today and as I finished it yesterday I thought it’d be a nice steady flattish ride to the cafe. 62 miles and another 1000m done.Posted 3 years ago
Fed up of hills now.
Total climbed is a smidge shy of Moomans though at 9873m
I also retract my previous statement on the tee shirt. $35 PLUS $25 postage! GTFonehundredthidiotMember
Finished. Nice of the weather to bookend the scorching sunshine of the week with torrential rain. Wanted to make it a special fun ride but legs and weather dictated a fairly boring road ride, took my months total to over 1000km.Posted 3 years ago
Just emailed Rapha to saw i wanted a t-shirt but $25 for delivery. Why don’t they send all the UK to rapha uk and distribute from there?bob_summersMember
Woke up this morning feeling lousy with 2,000m to go in 35º heat. So I cheated 🙂
Clicking the ‘fix elevation’ button for the rides I did gave me an extra 3,000m. Although as cheats seldom prosper, it took a few hours to process so I had to go out and struggle round a local hilly loop anyway.
No worse than doing it with the smartphone app though. Hats off to the Japanese guy currently sitting on almost 62km of hill reps, but as he’s used Android it must smart a bit for the Aussie in 2nd who’s done it with a barometric Garmin.Posted 3 years agocrazy-legsSubscriber
Grrrr finished this today but strava says I havent
No 75% Badge, or 100% completed badge or anything
You did click the “Join Challenge” button on Strava before you got going didn’t you? ❓
I went out again today – was nice just to ride without worrying about finding all the local hills or anything but I still did 1800m over 62 miles round the Yorkshire Dales on the CX bike.
Taking my total to 10,747m. 🙂

Because Rapha simply put their name to it and supply the roundels, Strava do the actual processing of the rides and any apparel that goes with it and that comes from San Francisco…Posted 3 years ago
