Did my longest ride yet yesterday. 91km's in preperation for the Makro / Best Med race on the 10th of September. Mapped out the route and did it with a mate of mine ("coverly").

The route is beautiful - a nice farmlands route and then back through Maitlands and along the beachfront. The main climbs are "The Wall", followed by an epic down hill before you ride towards Maitlands and then do the well known Maitlands Climb. However the real bastard climb of the route was the Old Seaview road, before turning right onto Chelsea Road where the climb continues without letup and steepens even further. A climb like this at the 80km mark was insanely tough.

Definitely want to do it again before the event. The views make it worth the pain :P

Tell me off topic, does strava require constant data connection??

No, it uses the GPS constantly, obviously, but the data is only sync'd once at the end of the ride. So it saves the data as it goes, and when you click 'end ride', it then pushes all that data to the site.

I use Gpsed, it uses very little data together with the GPS, you can set the time intervals it must sent data. I like the the future where someone can track you live on the internet.
