Turn Right Climb
COPY OF POST FROM QUEENCITY CYCLING CLUB MESSGAE BOARD
Thought this might be fun A little fitness tracker/ race/ personal challenge. Go climb Betsey Bell and post your time and any pertanant info on here and I'll keep a spreadsheet of everyone's efforts and track peoples progress.
HERE IS THE ROUTE AND GPS CLIMB INFO: http://trail.motionbased.com/trail/activity/7607980The
Start is behind Burger King off Greenville Ave. in the back parking lot near the dumpster behind the store. I WILL BE PAINTING A LINE WITH A "Q" AT THE END OF IT WHERE YOU START. From this line you can see traffic turning to head up Betsey Bell and of course you should wait for traffic before you begin as you will turn right onto Betsey Bell Rd from the parking lot. (I should ge the line painted tommorrow if the pavement is dry)
The finish is at the top of the climb at the turnaround. The first tree in the center of the turnaround is the finish line marker. I will tie some ribbon or something around the tree, but there is no spray paint or etc. on the road or tree.
The route is half pavement and half gravel. Should be interesting to see if the fastest time is from a moutainbike or a road bike. This should be a fun tool to guage fitness throughout the year and a fun test to see who post the fastest short climb in town.
The Climb1.08 miles long710 foot elevation gain11.6%Avg Grade according to GPS, but I have doubts....?
Now go CLIMB IT.
