Route Overview

Great work on the route planning by Hamish & Sparky; I thought some of the climbing stats looked a bit overstated as is often the case with Garmin.

So, I have done two revisions:

  1. Rick standard eyeball / estimate just looking at the profile
  2. Downloaded the GPX from Garmin and Uploaded it to Ride with GPS

Based on that I get the two additional columns of climb data below:

Each technique gave similar outcomes and I’m sure they represent a fairly accurate figure.

Based on that I think we could combine days 2 & 3 into one big day … it would be day 2 so we’d all be fresh … but it would be a strong day but the following day is pretty manageable to recover. That would get you to an 8 day tour …
