    Having a blast riding my 42x16 Langster with the geared roadies in the hills again. This ride went through Rocklin, Loomis, and Roseville. I'm the one with the GoPro on my helmet. I managed to get a PR on the Sierra College Blvd climb, even though I climbed Mix Canyon the day before (here's the Mix ride data: http://www.strava.com/activities/94179540). I will go through the video footage later and post the highlights.

    Last month I did 9 hill repeats on Pennsylvania Ave in Fair Oaks with the same SS. Pennsylvania is .3 mile long, 5.9% average grade, and 103' of elevation gain. It starts out at 11%, levels off a little, kicks up to 15% at the intersection with Magnolia St, then levels off to around 8% for the rest of the climb. Here's the data from that ride: http://www.strava.com/activities/91124308

    As usual I had my helmet-mounted GoPro recording in case anything interesting happened, so here's the highlights of that ride (caution heavy breathing!).

    freighttraininguphill - You're crushing the hills and looking fatastic!! Way to go!

    Cruising up Pantoll/Panoramic HWY from Stinson Beach. This was at mile 60 and after some really hard efforts. Legs were feeling it but I still managed a PR... totally wasn't expecting it! It's been a while since I've done that climb, I must have been REALLY out of shape back then!

    Attack in the feeling because it says I'll win absolutely.

    @Jandro how do you like that helmet? specialized seems to make nice gear. I'm kind of in the market for a winter one... one I can fit a cap under without feeling like....

    @sheepdog84 - I've had this helmet for almost 3 years. I love it. Fits really well, nice and light, good ventilation. 95% of the time I wear a cap underneath. The other 5% I didn't notice a difference in comfort/feel. At ~150$, it was in the right price range for my budget, too.

    Not sure off the top of my head (haaaaaa....) but I'd guess it's a medium.

    Looks way bigger in the picture. I was guessing at least a niner.

    Might just be the odd angle? I don't think it's particularly large.






    My next helmet will probably be a Giro. Love their hiviz stuff.

    That's a bad angle. Your right wrist/forearm is in the way.

    I was wondering why you were referencing mountain bikes ("niner"). Ugh. Rough day at work, can't brain anymore.

    I need a nap.

    Jandro, that pic of you climbing with the other rider makes me want to go hammer up a hill!

    Here's a pic of me on last weekend's group ride from Folsom to Newcastle. This was after all the good climbs were done. From here it was a fast, mostly downhill run back to Folsom. I was with the fastest riders until I got a red light I'm the second rider with the GoPro on my helmet as usual.


    WAV Riders Folsom, Loomis, Newcastle ride 11-16-13 by freighttraininguphill, on Flickr

    I got PRs on the three good climbs on the ride (http://www.strava.com/activities/95477358). Here's video of the two steepest ones: Chili Hill Road (entire climb) and the final steep section on Bald Hill Road (caution heavy breathing!).

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YdXmO7WmvtU


    When I climbed Mix Canyon on the 9th I was with four other riders. One had their own helmet-mounted GoPro. I loaned cameras to the other three riders to mount on their helmets. The results were some good screenshots of me climbing and plenty of video of the climb and descent. I posted all of that in the NorCal subforum here.

    freighttrain, either you have lost a lot of weight or those riding shorts are very slimming! Either way, your video posts are inspiring as always. Thanks for that
