    Bikemagic King of the Hill April Challenge

    KING-HILL-CHALLENGE.jpg






    As the weather continues to improve and spring is really getting going, we’re all finding more time to be out on the bikes. For many, thoughts are turning to getting fit for the summer. All around us people are getting more serious about their training and riding time.

    That’s why we’re introducing our new King of the Hill Challenge.

    For the month of April, we want you to record how much climbing you’re doing on your regular rides, here in the forum. The person with the most climbing at the end of the month, wins, and a prize beckons for that person. We’ll also be handing out spot prizes as well, because it’s about the taking part that matters.

    It doesn’t matter how you record your climbing. A cycle computer, GPS device or your smart phone, they’ll all do. After each ride, take a note of the metres of climbing and add using the format below. We’ve deliberately kept it simple so it’s super easy to use, and only takes a couple of minutes.

    I’ll get the ball rolling (the climbing figure is from your latest ride, and you add that to your total every time you update)

    Name……Location……Climbing……Total climbing
    David……...Surrey Hills….1020m……….....1020m

    According to Strava:

    Nobby rode 40.4 km and climbed 1,156 m on 31/03/2012 Cymmer, Neath Port Talbot, United Kingdom

    But Endomondo has it @ 627m.....


    Edit: Probably best I check the Garmin when I get home.

    I know. It was W2 which is officially listed as 975m but there was a bit of tooing & froing and the clamber up to the cafe. All things being equal, it's probably the higher of the two

    Steering this thread back on track, are you going to add your climbing quota from Sunday to the challenge?

    So Jen, are you going to post your commutes again, because if you are I'm personally not going to bother with this.

    There's no point entering with someone who bikes to work every day and IMO David needs to set some rules, like a) it must be on X% singletrack etc.

    Stan, Whites Level Afan 386m, total 386m...

    @ Jen I've beaten you in one ride already

    @ Nobby you've quoted W2 which was Saturday I believe?

    @ David - 1020m in Surrey? How many times did you go around...
