Strava Segment Chasing
|Peter O'Farrell||Mar 23 2021, 1:50pm||The idea here is to post a Strava segment and give it your best shot. Obviously you will have to be on Strava and your run will have to be public. Strava will record your segment time.|
Basic rules - 2 week window to do it, do it as many times as you like, post your best time.
The 5km restriction is currently tricky so the more segments the merrier. Feel free to post your local segment and maybe you'll discover loads of folk live close by.
I'll start off with one to favour the climbers, perhaps.
Tibradden to Fairy Castle https://www.strava.com/segments/20187832

Tibradden Summit to Ticknock Carpark https://www.strava.com/segments/20187832

That Kinski segment looks great Peter. Posting correct link: https://www.strava.com/segments/13345370
If anyone fancies taking on my favourite Strava segment, the mighty Poolbeg lighthouse out and back.
Dublin's answer to Paris Roubaix, 3.84km of cobblestones. (It's pretty good training for the ankles too)

|Graham K. Bushe||Mar 25 2021, 11:15am||Hi everyone,|
for those a little further south along the coast, I got up early this morning to create this segment.
Starting from The Glen of the Downs barrier (near Barry's Bridge) to the top of Kindlestown (beside the Mast) 4.4km & 156m, with 145m of that climb in the first 2km.
Enjoy! ; )

|Robert Costello||Apr 7 2021, 1:17am||The GOTD Vertical Burn|
|Eamonn Hodge||Apr 20 2021, 4:44pm||Bit late for the 2 week rule but this is a nice one. Vico road all the way up.|
