A little over a year ago TurtleGerl posted an interesting challenge on FB. Climb 10,000 feet in a 24 hr span, by any means. So, if you're a roadie & mountain biker, you could combine two rides as long as they were within the same 24 hr window. Hiking counts too. She did some crazy interval road ride up & down 56th st?? something like 100 times to hit the goal, pretty intense.

So, I know a bunch of you out there have done some burly rides. Post 'em up, let's see some.

I have four under my belt now, so I'll start:

Flagstaff: Little Bear's CrAzY90 (I suckered stevland into this one as well)

South Mountain: Sawtooth70

AZT300, the real beast, fully loaded. The last 24 hrs gave me 15,440' That was effin' tough.

Didn't you do the old APC 115? That was definitely over 10,000.

I have the Gila 100 and BCT from 169 to ELH. Those are both showing over 10,000 - though I suspect the BCT one may not be accurate. It didn't "feel" that big.

I have lots of rides in the 9,000s, but few over 10k.

I totally forgot about the Gila100 (66 for the DNF), didn't recall that one being over 10k, but it was. I never did the APC115. You're right about the BCT N->S, I show 6100' from rte69 to EH, a bit shorter but there's no way another 3900' is between 169 & 69.

Fixed it for you. I've met this challenge 3 times.
