My First KOM Try – BionicOldGuy


I lately signed up for Strava premium which helps you to examine efforts with others in your similar age group. Strava tracks “Kings of Mountain” (KOMs) and “Queens of Mountain” (QOMs) for numerous routes. A handy native problem for me is climbing Llagas street, which is simply quarter-hour away by bike. The climb at present takes me just below six minutes which is an efficient size problem.

The blue line reveals the phase being tracked, on this case, “Llagas East to West”

This locations me 87th out of 142 in my age group who’ve tried this phase. There are plenty of quick outdated of us in Morgan Hill!

I’m not a very good climber so this offers me one thing to give attention to enhancing. Coaching to get sooner at that may require the sort of intervals I’m already doing, however I’ve to give attention to doing them uphill as an alternative of on the flat. This shall be a enjoyable problem for me over the subsequent few weeks.

I did this effort very first thing yesterday morning. I then went residence and switched bikes from my unassisted street bike to my electric-assist bike, which I took on my Tuesday group outing, an extended experience at a neater tempo. However to start out off with my climbing coaching I turned help off on all important uphills and rode them extra briskly.
