2015 ElliptiGO Spring Classic
2010 Newton's Revenge results (unofficial ElliptiGO record held by Bryce Whiting):
|Newton’s Revenge, Mt. Washington, NH||7.6 miles, 4727 ft of gain||Male||7/11/2010||Bryce Whiting||1:54:22|
I have two goals for the race:
1) finish within 20 minutes of my fastest run up the hill (who even knows if this is possible)
2) ride all the way up without stepping down off of my ElliptiGO.
I have ridden up Pack Monadnock twice now and it has a steeper section than Mt. Washington.
The first time up, I had to put my foot down as I was tired from trying to blast up it as a 10 mile "race"effort on the old Pack Monadnock Road Race course.The next year I made it to the top without putting my foot down, but it was terribly hard to keep moving and balanced on the steeper sections!
2013 first ride up Pack Monadnock
|1996 Mt. Washington Road Race 76th place 1:22:23 nearing the summit.|
|Me Planning further adventures up the mountain 47 years ago!|
|Family trip to the summit in 1969.|
|People were astounded that our old 1962 Chevy 2 Wagon made it to the top.|
|But it did!|
|With my mom and siblings.|
|Cog Railway at the summit.|
I am sure I will have to add some hills to my training and change my gears so I have a lower range for the steep climbing. Who know what it will bring, but it should be fun in its own crazy way!
My running times at the Mt. Washington Road Race:
Then I got smart and stopped racing.
So now I have something to look forward to (or regret).
