Received the bracelet yesterday, thanks Rola!
I went out for a ride today (in the light rain) determined to take the Strava KOM with the bracelet (on one of my favorite hills for repeats). It doesn't get any better than this. Rainy hill repeats!
The descents were a little sketchy in the rain, but nothing to worry about as long as you ride the brakes. The hill is relatively short but fairly steep and somewhat curvy in sections.
I've posted the pic before but here it is again (old pic, not from today):
Here's the link to the ride and the KOM (I did it)! http://app.strava.com/activities/40181677
We decided after I did the initial KOM that we would do double climbs and pace ourselves to prepare for some of the bigger climbs we will do in the spring. Up, back down, and back up before resting by doing a ~1 mile loop.
I am going to ride at least one more time before sending the bracelet on. That will probably be tomorrow, nothing crazy though.
I think next year will be my strongest cycling year.
