as we all know, photos don’t show climbs very well

(the photo is towards the top as it levels out a bit. a good 200m+ ramp of it hovering over 14%)

That looks like a p. amazing profile.

Anyone got any recommendations for some relatively cheap waterproof over trousers? My commute by bike is like 1.5miles so I just need em to throw over my work trousers.

Winnats Pass is the real bastard though.

Strava people, how many KOMs/QOMs do you have and which one is the best one in your eyes?

I’ve got 7. This one for the most people…

This one for distance/speed combo…

Man I miss those days


#6398

Nine QOMs for me.

None are particularly impressive, just a load of residential roads in SE London.


#6399

About 30


#6400

Sounds plausible


#6401

apparently if you’re tied for the KOM it doesn’t show up in your profile bit

that’s quite annoying.


#6402

but still only 3


#6403

none, doubt I’ll ever get a (decently popular) one local to me because they’re mostly taken by pros or very good amateurs


#6404

Not with that attitude you won’t!

I didn’t set out to set any of mine, they just happened. I also prefer consistency over KOMs personally. I’d rather place in the top 10% (for instance) over the majority of my segments, rather than have erratic KOMs, and that’s when you know you’re getting good.
