We have discovered something new here this year on our cycling tours – Strava. Last year it was not mentioned at all, this year well its talked about nearly as much as Rapha gear, is it to expensive ? and the Lance Armstrong did he or did he not debate. We tend to join in the debate on these subjects – you will have to come on one of our cycling tours to find out our thoughts on both of these topics. We will however share my thoughts on Strava – Its great and its a bit like Facebook for cyclist !
Obviously Alpe d’Huez is a well travelled Strava segment – we use the Alpe d’Huez Time Trial segment as our guide and last week I did a PB up the 21 bends (despite the best efforts of a very wet storm !) of 52:52. Strava drove me on when I felt like quitting as I raced against my virtual competitors knocking nearly 3 minutes of my previous best time that I set while still in my (late) thirties.
Our tours run into October and we have a few odd spaces left for 2012. We are also taking booking for 2013 now with June and July already filling up nicely.
What will you Alpe d’Huez Strava time be ?
