These plans were created by my own coach, Tim Cusick, who is also the founder and head coach of BaseCamp.

8. JOIN MY GIDDY UP STRAVA CHALLENGES:
Each elevation and activity will have its own dedicated Strava challenge, allowing you to see who else is going for the same goal, and awarding you a trophy badge on your Strava account once you succeed. We will send you information on the Strava challenges once they are live.
9. PLAN YOUR ROUTE – CHOOSING A SINGLE CLIMB:
You must pick one hill for this challenge, and then repeat that as many times as necessary to hit your elevation target. You cannot ride or run different routes on the same mountain. But your chosen climb can be of any length. So choose wisely!
