If you follow me at all ... you probably know that I do a fair amount of biking ,,, especially over the past year.
I'm not particularly fast, and I'm not great on hills. I'm not in danger of hitting any Strava KOM's. Usually when I look at a Strava segment, I'm not anywhere close to the top of the leader board.
But, I do like to see myself hit PR's on Strava. It makes me think that at least I'm improving.
And ... from time to time, I come across a Strava segment that isn't as popular, and I find myself in the top 10.
Currently, I'm #6 on "Grapevine Loop From Morrison". It's a 14 mile route that starts and ends in Morrison, Colorado. It has a decent climb to begin with and then loops down mountain roads back into Morrison. It's a nice ride that even has a little bit of gravel in the middle.
I'm going to use this loop to help improve my climbing ... and to see if I can improve on 6th place.
We'll see how it goes.
