Not for me, but perhaps for Hank and Peter?

Do you know if this ride is on again this year? When?

From Danny Chew's Web site.

I once stair climbed up the University of Pittsburgh's 36 story building 86 times over a 12 hour period. Taking the elevator down each time, I gained 38,000 vertical feet of elevation.


RR NOTE: One day I climbed 4 flights of stairs.

"""Nov. 25th at 10am meet at Washington Blvd. track where ACA has summer criterium races. YOu can register day of event.""

I'm thinking about doing this. My father lives in Pittsburgh and I'll try to talk him into it.

I'd like to see a topo of Canton. The pics sure make it seem steep but I want to see the data: rise and distance. They are talking about twice as steep as extremely steep.

As to doing the event. This takes a different skill than a full mountain hill climb. These are scrambles up a series of short, steep ascents. What we train to do is a single long ascent up each venue, which is more a lactate threshold event as opposed to a sprint, like this. Each type of event has its virtue. But it isn't my game. However, there are plenty of hammerheads in the NYCC (just tap the STS) who have this sort of stuff.

Looks like about 3.5 topo-lines in 0.1 miles. From the posted 37% need to work out what the 3.5 topo-lines mean. (Just did it, roughly 50 ft per topo line)
