    Agreed. That is nuts!

    Excellent! Then you demolished W84 as well! Lap time was 14:50 (reported by Strava) which tends to be one sample point short, so I assume your stopwatch time was 14:51. Edge 500 data tend to be dodgy at top of OLH (800 and 200 are better) but your segment time came pretty close to this. Very nice!

    I would have used my 705 but it has been having some issues creating the tcx files when rides are completed... Must get an 800 at some point.

    Doing OLH seemed to open my lungs a bit - 84 felt pretty easy (well, it was a 30W lower effort). I should probably have opened up the lungs more in the warmup before OLH.

    My stopwatch was from mid bridge to stop sign (I then rolled down W OLH a little) - 14:51.

    Now all I need is drop 3 kg to racing weight, do some racing and then come back over to have another go... :)

    On W84 - I had not climbed it before - was surprised how nice it was!

    Back in the 1990's W84 was pretty miserable with all the car exhaust. But car exhaust is much less of a problem these days and W84 is, I agree, under-rated. It's an efficient way to Skyline. It wouldn't work so well as a Low-Key Hillclimb, but for single-file, it's fine.

    On the Garmin's: I was surprised how good the Edge 200 data looked. There've been improvements since the 500. Presumably these will be translated to the successor to the Edge 500. The 800 is nice, but it's heavy.

    Well done! Very impressive. Can't wait to see that 3kg lighter and race shape time.

    Wow, Ryan, way to go! And just as I was feeling good about my OLH time... ;-)))

    Another gauntlet has been thrown down on OLH. Solid effort!

    Impressive that even after an assault by an electric assisted bike, this record still stands:

    Ryan beat the electric bike by 1 second on "Bridge to Mailboxes"
