Wow congratulations, great effort.
If a bargain cannot be obtained today, the market will open again tomorrow offering you a fresh new opportunity and a new price.
Kudos. That's an awesome achievement.. ,:-)
What's involved PB?
It works out to 12 meters a minute.
Do ride up it?
Carry the bike?
What do you actually do over the 12 hrs?
The hill I chose was just under 500m in distance, but climbed 60.6m in elevation (for cyclists out there ~13.3% average). In my time limit of 12hrs I did 153 laps of the circut (up and down the hill continuously) = 9271.8m. To put into perspective, Mt Everest peak from sea level is 8848m, so effectively I climbed higher than the height of Everest in a single ride, in 12hrs.
And plenty of hills.
The one out the front door is 800 meters and close
To your hill
Just down the road is Willunga Hill the one that the tour down
Ride up. Done it a few times but all day!!!
What type of bike did you ride?
Road or Mountain or Custom?
Willunga hill is only 7.6%
but check this out---you'd appreciate it.
So to get your record you'd have to do 4 climbs an hr for 12 hrs
I doubt I'd last more than a couple of hrs on a mountain bike
Less on a roadie.
You are the man!
Personally I rode a Giant Defy, with a few custom adjustments (I dropped every bit of weight I could, getting the complete bike sub 6kg). I doubt these types of records could be broken on anything less than a Roadie.
I definitely wont be able to sustain that for the 48hr, and will most likely use a hill with 10% like the current record holder.
Will need a full team of people helping me for the 48hr thats for sure!
Congratulations pinkboy, that's an amazing achievement!
I didn't realize we had Guinness World Record holders here at ASF. Great stuff!
