    Burned out at work and have to burn some time so I took next week off. Going to change it up and head North of here. Made a short loop in Strava. I find it hard to believe there is a 25% grade ANYWHERE within 3 hours of here :D I could be fooled, we'll see :D

    I’d be more worried about the hole you’re going into and how carrying all the scuba gear with you might slow things down.

    Funny, I created that route using Strava and exported it to RWGPS and got some more REALISTIC numbers, more like I would expect to see in this area. I can believe 3.5 % grade :D Screen Shot 2020-09-07 at 5.23.27 AM.png

    That’s a pretty big difference. Might take a snorkel, just in case.

    Heading to Cleveland again.
    Among other things, I’m have a stress test with echo.
    I figure after the DVT a few weeks ago, this would be the best place to test my body before rolling out on two wheels again.

    We have a couple of segments that were Strava-generated that are similar in that the grade and elevation is TOTALLY crazily off.

    One is a slight hill out of a local village, Strava categorizes it as a Cat4 and shows at one point near the beginning a 46.8% grade! It's here - https://www.strava.com/segments/4864665

    And then there is another that was Strava-generated, the actual stretch has a slight rolling hill and then a down hill yet Strava shows it as a Cat4 with a grade of 19% in the middle! https://www.strava.com/segments/4975470

    The elevation profiles are totally wrong yet if I ride them it shows everything correctly until I click on the segment.

    I tried reporting both but never any response or anything.

    Strava does a lot of things well, this not one of them apparently.

    My wife and I have put a TON of work in our back deck lately. We just took down old wooden balusters and installed new tubular balusters and deck rail rails. It’s been a challenge as whoever originally built the deck used a combination of 4X4s and 6X6 post and cut every one of them uneven as phuck! We’ll have to back and to the posts which is going to be yet another challenge but she’s a trooper putting up with me :) IMG_2141.jpg
