Have done the Death Ride up around Markleeville near Lake Tahoe a dozen times over the years always was a good training ride for IMC back in the day as it was at the beginning of July, and did them all on my tri bike.

Course varied from around 125 miles to 145 miles or so and 14,000 to 16,500 feet of climbing, you had to complete all 5 passes to get the little pin at the end. A great day out but was pretty tired at the end especially when it was one of the really hot ones.

One year had lightening hitting the ground close to us as we were flying down one of the passes a bit scary especially when it started to pour down, was totally frozen when we got to the bottom of that pass.

There's a lot of impressive climbing in this thread!

I've never lived anywhere that had any real climbs, but I did the Dubai Roadsters Coast to Coast Challenge in 2014 while I was living in Abu Dhabi. Ended up climbing over 8,600 feet over 127.5 miles. If I recall correctly, the route was supposed to be about 135 miles, but was cut short that day for whatever reason (didn't bother me. I was smoked!)

Wow nice job - how are you on the saddle for so long without breaks? What did you eat/drink?

in France last year, I did 2 HC climbs and a bunch of rolling stuff which landed me at a little over 4000 meters in 120 km, someone else can figure out what that is in olden times measurements.

The Six Gaps Century is a ride in north Georgia.


Oh whoops, my mistake.

There's a ride we do over the gaps of Vermont that we call the Six Gaps. Not an organized race/fondo or anything but it's well known by that name and does include the steepest paved full mile in North America.

That sounds brutal. I rode up Sequatchie Mountain in the Hincapie Fondo a couple years ago, and that was one of the steepest short climbs I have done. I was having a bad day and had to stop in the middle. I cannot fathom what the steepest paved mile in NA would be like.

Out of the saddle probably 30-40% of the time, but Im comfortable grinding in the saddle at 65-75 rpm. You get some relief from the descents too. I ate some solids in the early hours but it became a gatorade, coke and monster hydro diet as it got up to 90+ degrees with a few cliff blocks when I could stomach it.

I would imagine my biggest day was roughly 11,000 ft over roughly 120 miles in the Triple Bypass in CO. Not a huge day but it’s all at altitudes over roughly 8000ft.

I’ve done that ride a few times.

It's called Lincoln Gap near Warren Vermont. It's the most sadistic 1.2 miles I've ever ridden. Averages anywhere from 18-20 % depending on your elevation source. The 8-10% sections are where you "recover". Of the 8 or so times I've done it, I've twice had to stop and walk the last bit.

I just stumbled on this video of someone hitting 43 mph while sledding down it

Incidentally, in trying to search for this, I discovered that I have hundreds of Strava rides/runs where the elevation change is listed as 65,000 feet. Mostly older rides/runs with the ForeRunner 910 and 310 which had those problematic altimeters

Now I am going through workouts and telling Strava to correct the elevation to find out what it really was. Does anyone know of a way to do that in bulk?

30,800ft in 122 miles of riding for my Everesting in June. I did the math a bunch of times but I guess I did an extra lap out there on the climb. It sucked enough without the extra but I was pretty much numb and running on gatorade at that point anyways.

I was going to write "2500m in about 90km".

Thanks a lot.
