My first try at KOM – BionicOldGuy

I lately signed up for Strava Premium, which lets you examine your efforts with these of others in your identical age vary. Strava tracks the “Kings of Mountain” (KOM) and “Queens of Mountain” (QOM) for various routes. A helpful native problem for me is to climb the street to Llagas, which is just a 15 minute bike journey away. The climb at the moment takes me just below six minutes, which is an effective size problem.

The blue line exhibits the phase adopted, on this case, “Llagas from east to west”

This places me 87th out of 142 in my age group who’ve tried this phase. There are quite a lot of outdated rapids in Morgan Hill!

I am not a very good climber, so it provides me one thing to concentrate on to enhance. Coaching to go sooner would require the kind of intervals I already do, however I have to concentrate on the climbs quite than the flat. This will probably be a enjoyable problem for me over the following few weeks.

I made this effort very first thing yesterday morning. I then rode house and adjusted bikes from my unassisted street bike to my e-bike, which I took on my Tuesday group journey, an extended journey at a neater tempo . However to begin my climbing coaching, I turned off the help on all the key climbs and hiked them sooner.
