As some folks told me (as if I needed a reminder), that is one seriously hard hill climb! Frank even suggested that someone added another ramp since the last time. Might be true! As opposed to last week’s short time trial, the real and Strava times, like the wind that I experienced when I did the hill climb midday, were all over the place. My Garmin timer time and my Strava time were off by 13 seconds (shorter) and in some instances, folks saw even more of a discrepancy. I’m sticking to the Strava plus 3 seconds rule but in the interest of accuracy, try to time your time trial and hill climb segments if possible with a timing device, rather than reporting your Strava time. I’m not too worried about this as we’re doing this for fun, right??
