10,000+ feet of climbing

January 19, 2011 at 11:53 pm 2 comments


10000 feet of climbing in one ride – the garmin edge 800 cannot display 10,000 feet because it only can display 4 digits in any one column as shown in the red circle! As a side note, the yellow circle indicates what in my opinion is one of the best new features of the Garmin 800 – the ability to display your climbing rate (instantaneous and 30second average).

So how does one climb 10,000 feet in Birmingham? Here’s the maps and data! 10,000 feet of climbing in one ride – annotated with climb names and a line indicating all the descents approaching 50mph.

It’s Birmingham, so what would a ride be without a few greater than 20% gradients per the red iBike slope data above – 21% on Renfroe and Double Oak Way, 24.7% on the climb to Greystone Crest off of Hugh Daniel

10,000 feet of climbing in one mega-climbing loop! Click the map for the medium version. Or download the huge version to see all the residential road names.

    Ha, yes, definitely still tired, so I did a lot of the climbs slow except for karl daly. Towards the end, my legs were feeling better and hopefully I didn’t start pushing it too hard!

Got caught in the rain, cut the ride a bit short. Just got dumped on by that storm. Repeats on Vandiver - hard to get a good pic of the ridge line during the summer.
