This informal get together consists of:
1) a self timed hillclimb, self seeded bunch start or handicapped (depending on the course and numbers)
2) normally followed by a social ride after the shorter courses
3) finish back down at the paddock and write your times down, or email in

The times will then be entered into a spreadsheet and published by email, and posted on vorb as a leaderboard

The series consists of 4 climbs, for week 1/2/3/4 of the month, in '5 week' months the 5th week will be a 'free ride'. The plan is to run this through the summer until the Coppermine race in Feb.

When: Monday nights at 6pm

Where: Start point for all climbs is the RDA Paddock (near bottom of DC track).

Come along and start boosting your fitness for summer!

Par table:
Table of 'par' times for rider rating, use these as target times for climbs that haven't been completed or highlighting strong/weak times for those that have.

OK times are up from last night, numbers up a little from last week, the nicer weather must have offset the big Fringe on the climbing menu :o

My run went OK but for a 2 minute Navigation stop :(
And no Strava this week due to the kids playing with my phone before hand and turning the GPS off :hmmm:

Hi Folks, If anyone wants a copy of the course map then PM me and I'll email it to you, I'll send some around to bike shops this week also. It's all very low key, sorry to those that got lost, but the advantage is that next month you will smash your previous time. If anyone does a non-monday run then email me your time, again PM me here if you're not already on the email list.

It's the big fringed hill tommorow via the classic - no slacking off on that one :o
The predictions are are showing 67 mins for me - a long time to be pointing upwards without a break!, the fast guys will be going sub 50 min...

I was stuck on childcare duties and so couldn't make the Monday night run, made the run this morning though and posted a 1:02:50.
Man that's a big climb, the 'classic' had my lungs doing a good accordion impression, but I was pleased to clean most of it after a few troubles on my practice run on Saturday.
And a great way to start the day looking down on the world from the top of the Fringe :love: :D

Results are in from Climb 1 last night, still 4 times missing though so if you could get those in here or by email thanks. ;)

8 riders signed up for a hot and sweaty assault on DC / Pipeline / Jacks / Firball to Trig (although some riders decided to ignore the official route and take a detour up the Firball climbing track instead :blush: )
What should have been a nice short one after the Fringed climbs still maintained difficulty factor due to the heat and steep pinches.

Good to see double the amount of girls turn up on Monday, with Steph coming along for the first time to join Sarah, and giving the green run a go :thumbsup:

So that concludes the opening round, and the leaderboard starts to looks more complete. Oh, but wait a minute - it's a fix - the guy entering the numbers it sitting at the top :lol: :paranoid:

Would be great to see some more riders coming along for the next round, and for those already signed up to fill in some of those missing gaps. Remember if you can't make it on Monday nights you can still send in your times and get them on the board.

It's starting to get a nice social feel to it now riders are getting to know one another, and I think all agree there's nothing like riding with others to boost motivation and fitness. :thumbsup:

OK tonights times in, a beautiful summers evening, 8 riders tackled climb 2 and 8 improved times :thumbsup:

3 mins 15 sec off my time, as there were due to no navigational blunders and a bit of improved fitness, I like gains like that :D Might be a bit more to come too as my mind played tricks on me, the top came sooner than I was expecting and I still had some juice left in the tank, normally it's the other way around LOL.

Last night was Climb 3, Fringed hill, the weather broke giving relief from the heat, meaning the half dozen riders that risked the rain at least escaped a sweatshop.

For the first time the times were a mixture of slower and faster than previous attempts, with a hot new entrant Chris S setting the mark with a blistering 33 minute run, and according to the leaderboard engine nudging ahead of Scott B in the ratings :o

First run of the new year on Monday, climb 1 to Sharland trig, with the new handicapping system, started slowest first at intervals based on riders rating, so all riders theoretically finish together - made for an extra challenge on the run and all finished with improved times.
Paul now at top of board :thumbsup:

Coppermine only 5 weeks away now :o

Climb 3 times in from Monday night, up ye old Fringed hill. Another handicapped run using the leaderboard par times, resulted in some close racing! And all (apart from the guys sat at the top) got new records. :thumbsup:

All this in spite of snapped chains and pinch flats :D
