What is wrong with you?!
34km/h, Riding alone?????
2 partners in adventures: Tim Johnson and Ryan Kelly. Scope their files on Strava soon.
@Ben, you inspired me (well sort of), with your massive 7 hour ride with Taylor a few weeks back. I'm just making up for lost time.
We both have some screws loose. We should do something retarded like RAAM together.
As we´re use to say here in Brazil: "Puta que pariu!!!". Amazing... Congratulations !
Sillier things have happened in life, @Ben. I don't necessarily know what they are, but with a (stupid iron headed) will, there's a way.
RAAM? Sure, why not.
Ugh, a 1+ mile long cat4 climb with sections at 10% + gradients, after 200 miles already?? that had to hurt...
Damn, that's a ride. I am most definitely not Ted King.
Ha, excellent ride... good way to get ahead on those base miles!
Great to see that even the pros are up for double century distance! Amazing average speed as well, hell my best double thus far has been 16.9 mph, albeit with 16,000 of climbing, but much slower nonetheless! Way to go Ted!
Hats off! And I thought riding 200km on my own was a feat. Did you have a tailwind, crosswinds or a headwind?
Obviously the average speed is misleading...he was descending South the whole time.
though "extreme", somehow a decidedly "not-epic" ride according the the newfangled strava suffer score. which raises the question: what the hell sort of s**t is epic??? average speed of 50 mph uphill in extra secret gravity?
and I thought my solo ride was impressive - http://app.strava.com/rides/1383337. Wow guys...wow. That's just crazy fast.
Enjoyed reading about it in Bicycling.
Ted- I have watched 'The fall of Ryan T Kelly' about 20 times now on Vimeo- just makes me smile every time. Good on you for connecting with cycling fans and amateurs! Good luck in your 2012 season. Dumptruck of Awesome!
