May Challenge UpdateBy Will • Jun 4th, 2007 • Category: Cycling, The Challenge
May was a great cycling month with some big climbs.
Climbing the legendary Mont Ventoux twice as well as the lessor know but superb Mont du Chat were highlights. But I think the top ride of the month had to be the 176 km loop of Lake Geneva with Martin. Easily the longest ride of my life as well as the first time riding in a fast peleton. Great fun.
I have decided to increase my 2007 challenge from 120,000 metres of vertical climb to 160,000 metres.
1) My GPS logbook was understating ascent by a bit as it was ignoring all ascent when the grade was below 2%
2) I am on track to easily beat the original target
Anyway, quite pleased that my silly challenge is keeping me motivated.
