    Oh, wait. I thought this was a fire road. If it's pavement, 34-26 is way too low of a gear. 39-23/25 would be the absolute lowest gearing you would need. 9% on the pavement is not very steep at all....

    "Hey don't bug me, I'm an Olympic athlete on Strava." Not.

    The exhorting of social media as a reason to not respond to an actual person is ironic.

    If the guy could offer an excuse while riding along, then he obviously wasn't putting forth enough effort on his Strava segment.

    That's the lamest part of the whole story. Being that Strava is...
