You put in some unreal efforts. WOW!
Baline is pretty straight forward. Triple threat is another matter. I would have loved having you lead me on that trail. I didn't know where it started and kept ending up in the wrong gear. I had to walk up a couple sections. This segment definitely favors a local. Joe - you are getting really strong on the road bike. Don't forget about the dirt: JDM is back on for later in the year!
I agree about Baleen and Triple Threat. Triple Threat is one tough singletrack in either direction. It's tough to clear Triple Threat when you KNOW the tough stuff it coming.
I have all of the parts, but I will be repairing my MTB next week. I'm actually trying to figure out a way to do all 15 of the MTB climbs in ONE DAY. I will keep you posted.
JDM....Now I'm excited since my legs are better than ever.
You could do it all in one day. Might need a little shuttle support or a follow vehicle.
JDM is intriguing.
You put in an excellent time on Baline to tower. We need to recruit you to our team.
Here's one version:
Rough estimates: 22K and 110 miles
Up and down Will Rogers
Up and down Paseo Mira
Up and Down Mul to Etz
T1 to Latigo
Down and Up Mesa Peak
Down and Up Paseo Mira
Down and Up and Down Bulldog
Up Baleen to Tower
Up Triple Threat to China Flat
Up Space Mt
Down and Up Rosewood
Down and Up and Down Backbone
Up and Down Overlook
Collapse in the Ocean
Lunch and DInner stops
Try to stay in Z3 as much as possible to survive
MapMyRide would give us a better estimate of mileage
6am to 10pm is a rough estimate
I don't know what this SMMT thing is but it sounds brutal.
Daniel.. Take a look at: http://smmtchallenge.com/. Any one can sign up. After you sign up, ride on of the segments, post your ride to Strava and the SMMT Challenge web site will automatically update. I am only doing the Mountain, but there is also Road.
Hey Joseph, I would be into doing that . Maybe
I'll keep you posted on a date. I have a project to complete in about 2 weeks.
