Climbing on the Tour Divide

One of the riders posted this calculation of the climbing we will try and do. I particularly like the fact that it is in metric. Climbing 53 km vertically sounds like a much rounder number than some 175,000 feet. Yes, the latter has the advantage of sounding much more dramatic, but 53 km is a number I can conceptualize. It’s big.
