More Strava Challenges for Elevation
the Challenges that you propose (which i do as many as i can) are mostly distance based. whild i do road bike and the miles are easy i also mountain bike and the miles are much harder. the ele vation between the two is much closer. ie a 20 mile loop on my road bike will usally be about 2000 ft climbing (dont like to run the flats) and a 10 mile mt bike should give me 2000 ft . the time and effort are similar on these two examples where if i were to try to match the distances i then would be out there twise as long on my mountain bike. Also, elevation will challange some of the flatlanders to find some hills. i look at some of the distance leaders (usally Florida) and they have no climbing at all.
thanks for your consideration and love strava as a whole! It has made my hobbie more interesting.
