Snitz and Lauren finished the Everest successfully (riding together the whole time)!  Woooo....29,100 vert in one day!

Jim said it was really tough, but he felt good most of the way (ate and drank enough).  Lauren said she felt like she was going to blow lunch the entire 2nd half of the ride...miserable beyond belief.  Of course, that may be due to the fact that she looks to have taken the women's world's record from the current record holder and cycling legend Katie Hall (10 hours).  It's going to literally come down to a matter of 2-3 minutes.  They need to upload the garmin data, correct the vert and figure out exactly when they crossed 29,100 ft.  

What a day!!!!

Re: Jr to do Everest Climb today! WTF!!

It’s just 24 laps!  Yeah. Right. Wow. That is nuts. Best of luck to them. 

Oh to be young again!

Snitz Jr and his fiance* are doing something called "Everesting" today, sponsored to raise money for Atlanta's Grady Hospital and Denver's Craig Hospital.  Folks around the world have apparently been attempting to climb 29,000 vert ft in one day (the equiv of climbing to the top of Everest from sea level). 

Snitz is using a climb in Northern Georgia, which has an average grade of 10%.  Apparently it will take 24 laps to total the 29,000 ft.  They picked the route because it has an efficient steady rate of climb(steep enough to eliminate much wind drag) and a straight nontechnical decent.  Also, the ratio of climbing to recovery is 20 mins up/4 mins down.  Not too many laps, short enough recovery to avoid muscles getting cold.

The route is shaded and today's temps are favorable (57 at today's 6am start, high 78).

They have several friends helping support them at the base.  Interesting their calculation of food required and hydration for the event that's estimated at about 10 hours (w luck).  A friend who's is a sports nutritionist and had them ride, weigh themselves on some rides and record their fluid intake.  The idea was to calculate their sweat rates to estimate how much fluid they need to inject to avoid losing more than 3-4 lbs of body weight on the ride.  Ergo, dehydration isn't that hard to avoid on a 2-4 hour ride, but when climbing for 10 hours...different story.  Critical that they stay hydrated and get sufficient nutrients.

Fingers crossed.  Hope to shoot out some Strava data this evening.  

*Is Jim's fiance up to this crazy challenge?  Will she keep up...err...she's the 2019 winner of US Collegiate Cycling Championship.

Fw: North Shore Century 2020 Canceled!

Evanston Bicycle Club

 
We regret to inform you that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Evanston Bicycle Club has decided to cancel this year’s North Shore Century, which had been scheduled to take place on Sunday, September 13. The Evanston Bicycle Club has conducted this event for 35 years, but in order to ensure the safety and health of our riders and volunteers, we believe this is the best course of action.

The North Shore Century brings together roughly 2,000 participants and more than 150 volunteers. In addition to the health and safety concerns, after consulting with our partnering municipalities and park districts, it became clear that we could not ensure that park district facilities would be available for an event of this size. Nor could we assume the participation of the number of volunteers necessary to provide the great experience our riders have come to expect.

The Evanston Bicycle Club would like to encourage all of our supporters to continue to enjoy the sport of cycling this year. Our route library is open to the public and contains more than 200 routes ranging from 7 miles to 107 miles! All routes have maps and turn-by-turn directions and can be downloaded to navigation devices or printed. The route library can be accessed from the ROUTES tab on our website http://evanstonbikeclub.org.

Next year’s North Shore Century is scheduled for Sunday, September 19, 2021. We hope to see you then! In the meantime, keep in touch on Facebook (North Shore Century), Instagram (@NorthShoreCentury), and the web http://northshorecentury.org.

Pretty amazon final stage.  Snitz made it into the front group during the race.  Finished 22nd in this stage (of 147 riders) giving him 20th spot in the final GC results.  Pretty crazy going head to head with the top pro riders in the US (several world tour entrants as well).

His average wattage for the 1 hr 44min stage today was 327 (almost 5 watts/kg).
<Screen Shot 2020-05-24 at 2.34.33 PM.png>

More amazing was watching him during the race. During the flat sections he was able to coast at around 230-250 watts.  There were 4 short climbs (3-6 minutes each) today and one big one (14 mins).  On those and some of the rises along the race you needed to hold over 500 watts to hang on.  Crazy wattage.

Group rides

Lena Chon
 

Hi All ,
What a beautiful day. So many riders out, including BBC members. It’s nice to see some of you in passing.

Wondered if anyone was by the high school? I left at 8:30 am and came back to a parking full of cars, and a large group of cyclists enjoying post ride chit chat. This makes me really miss you all.

I am counting down the remaining days of May... Hoping we (BBC)will start having group rides again... in June!

In the mean time, get out there and enjoy the road. Don’t forget to pack your masks and sunscreen.

Lena
