Whilst we've been sitting at home during lockdown, we got thinking, what is the most amount of elevation we can pack into a 100km ride, from our front door, without using the same road twice? We looked at our favourite routes on Strava and made a list of our favourite climbs, and got to work.
We then thought this would be a great way to motivate ourselves to ride some hilly routes together when lockdown ends.
We want to see your routes. How much elevation can you pack into a 100km ride without overlapping? Send us your routes, and we'll select 5 entries at random who will win our new Pro Ascent Jerseys of your choice.
Reminder, there are no prizes for having the most amount of elevation. This is about giving you a challenging route to ride, and making it fair for everyone from Colombia to Quebec.
Even better, if you're in the UK, we'll select one route at random to come and ride with you after lockdown (and when it's safe) and give you a full Band of Climbers kit to ride with.
Here's one of our attempts, from BoC Chief Rouleur Stuart. We're sure you can do better. Get the route here:
