    0 + 3252 = 3252

    Finally, I got the math right on one of these things.

    Strava climbing boards are ruled by people that ride online. Cyber-elevation count?

    My climbing total for yesterday’s 63 mile ride was a whopping 10 feet. My Memorial Day Ride, going over a few bridges, was 377 feet over 41 miles. I don’t think I’ll be much help in this challenge. The best help I can do is to post in October for the C2C ride. All three days added together would equal a normal day for you guys.

    @RidesAlot Cyber rides count.

    @John_V we'll use anything we can get. Granted, your location will make your numbers less than most others.
    W won't hold it against you.

    @rola643 that loop may have little climbing, but I'm pretty sure over seen you hit 30 or more a few times this year.

    It all adds up. Just like the pennies I've been putting away for retirement.

    Okey Dokey!

    It is funny as I joined a Strava club for the same area as the MBA (in signature) and I see these huge elevation total's. I'm thinking "wow, these folk's do hill rep's!", but then I rode once in Road Grand Tours and I jumped to third place. :)

    I have to search for hill's around here! I'll probably add total's monthly to lessen the work load.

    Are you trying to kill me? That’s way too hilly for me. And then there’s that mountain at the end!

    I guess for a Floridian that would be like climbing Alp d'Huez. :D
