Rapha Rising - Ring of Death
Is anybody contemplating attempting this challenge?
I can't even begin to think how you would even fit that amount of climbing in, unless you dedicated your days to it. I thought about sticking in a few laps of a hill that I ride up most days (Lancashire Hill in Stockport) but after a quick look on bikehike it appears that I'd need to cycle it almost 250 times.
Does Strava actually monitor your climbing or does it just give you your highest point? As in if you climbed the same hill that had an elevation of 100m five times would it give you a total climbing of 500m or would it just register it as 100m being your biggest climb?
Am I right in thinking that a hill that rises 100m in 1km would be the same reward as riding a hill that raises 100m over 5km? This is pretty basic stuff but I'm struggling to visualise how much climbing this really is.
