April Alpina is a personal climbing challenge run along the lines of March Magic. There are 5 goal levels to chose from based fairly accurately on the club's ride tempo ratings, i.e., A-D plus an HC category. Open to club members and nonmembers. To sign up enter your name, password and challenge level in the link up above. Then begin recording your daily elevation gain here in the April Alpina Log, and watch the numbers and the graph grow. Whether you push your climbing a little or a lot this is the perfect program for those who want to improve their climbing ability, strength and and confidence. And for those who thrive when focused on a goal.
Riders without altimeters can still take part in April Alpina, albeit with a bit more work. We have built a Data Base of typical climbs in the area, and there is almost always someone on a club ride who will have an altimeter with whom one can check for a route's elevation gain. And if you have a favorite loop that you want to work on, we may be able to find someone to measure it for you.
