- Strava will be the death of me.
Ah the monster that is Swains Lane. great little climb, winning time on Strava is good going!
I wont be worrying the holder of KOM on that puppy anytime soon. I’m doing 8-10 laps once/twice a week in the evenings…..it adds upp to a fair bit of UP and Strava is great for letting you see yourself getting faster.
I’m 6’3 and 85kg – I’m reconciled to the fact that the laws of gravity mean I’m never going to be snapping at the heels of all you little guys on the hills. But at least I’m not a leprechaun.Posted 7 years agocharlierevellMember
Climbing Challenge (39% for me) is over, as is the 800km one (60%).
This months just looks stupid!!!
Are they mental?
Breaking it down I guess its just 300miles a week for a 5 week month, still silly for most.
Ride twice the distance of the Tour of California in May.
While some cyclists are gearing up for the AMGEN Tour of California, put yourself to the physical and hydration test with Nuun’s Twice the Tour challenge. Ride twice the distance that Tour riders will race between May 1 and May 31 – 1,479 miles total – and earn your challenge Finisher’s badge.
Worried about feeling up to the challenge? Nuun’s electrolyte enhanced tablets can help you stay hydrated to go the distance!

“Well I’ve gone from 8th to 3rd on my local hill which I ride on my commute home. Going to have to ditch the rucksack and SS road bike and do it on the geared roadie now.”
yup im averaging 30kph on a 9km flat segment on the way to work. thats 14th. KOM is 35kph- im so tempted to ditch the fixie with pannier and break out the carbon TT bike which i know is good for at least 25mph on that segment – ive been steadily picking off all the same guys KOMs round the city 😉
Itll be the death of me ! – 482nd on the nuun challenge atm ….Posted 7 years ago
ok, so first attempt at a KOM this morning and didn’t know exactly where the start and finish were but managed 4th (out of 60) which is only 2s off the lead which I think is achievable. this could get addictive, but I’m determined to stick with the fixie rather than break out the roadie.
what does “SB” stand for after a segment title?
the exclusion zone round my house means i’ve lost one of my KOMs
I live at the top of a “mountain” but now it doesn’t record the times since I set up the exclusion zone.Posted 7 years agoWaderiderMember
I’m at 65th on Twice the Tour as I type. Fair chance of getting it as I only need to improve on Aprils ‘mileage’ by about 30%, and my miles tend to increase with daylight hours.
Need a faster bike though – using a Kaffenback built as a tourer. Weight 15kg. Quite comfy, but not good for winning segments. Got a few segments though, some of the local roadies would be pissed off if they saw me in action 😆Posted 7 years ago
