So both of my gran fondo’s (July., September) being cancelled I’ve set a goal: I’m planning on doing a big climb late August - Mount Revelstoke. There’s a mass start hillclimb that traditionally takes place on this date, but if it doesn’t, I am still planning on being there to ride it.
It’s only 90 minutes away: 15 hairpins, 25kms, 1500m elevation gain. Super steady at almost all between 4-6 percent and nothing over 10.
- What plans to follow:
I’m going to be done SS2 on June 16th and wondering how to build from there.
Sweet Spot 3 and then what? Hill climb intervals or the 40k TT plan or other?
Question 2: how to estimate estimating time and pacing, power. We know the length and gradient of the climb, and we have my weight, bike’s weight, and current FTP, so is there an easy way to approximate how long it will take? I am hopefully going to get in one full recon ride between now and then.
And if anyone wants to come join (assuming the border is open) you’re more than welcome to. We’ll be socially distant by the first switchback. .
