September 30, Windsor to Mantua and the Newport Landing Loop

A fine clear autumn day eventually, a bit cool at the start but warming nicely by the time we reached Newport Landing for lunch. Modest Tailwind after lunch, good planning! The first graph shows the elevation profile of the entire route, then there are several expanded scale graphs of each 10km segment. Total climbing on this route was 508 metres; a couple of the post-prandial rollers were at a gradient of 10% at their steepest sections, which made for some fast downhills but slow uphills.

km 0-10

km 10-20

km 20-30

km 30-40

km 37 to the end

Fascinating. I would have guessed a little hillier than the info depicts on the last 15-20 ks. Oh well, it was a great day for it.

Hi Leo

Those hills look spectacular, when compressed like that. Like riding along a "old-fashioned Cross-Cut saw".

Have you thought of taking a small digital camera with you, or are there support teams in cars who could carry goods for you?
A few happy snaps of the group, or scenic shots from peaks of mountains would add an extra dimension to the blog (for the statistically challenged amongst your readership (me).
