Gauging interest here. Not really racing, but this is maybe? the most relevant sub-forum. Maybe ride reports? Would it be worthwhile to have a thread for keeping track of all the fastest known times (FKT) for ADV routes such as the Trans American Trail, BDRs, state routes, and other established, popular rides? FKT is a concept used by the hiking world and it’s pretty simple. They maintain a list of the people with the fastest known time to complete an established route. They have a lot of different rules, but an important one for here could simply be that it’s for amateurs only. Times would have to be documented or verified somehow (like with a gpx, in a ride report on ADV, or other write up). I certainly wouldn’t want to get into the minutia like an IBA certification, but we could keep it simple and mostly based on the honor system with a bit of proof (aka trust but verify). Given the nature of ADV riding, an FKT doesn’t necessarily equate to riding fast, breaking speed laws, etc. but could reflect endurance or just plain luck. Some riders are competitive types and like to do it for the challenge more than for the scenery. Could be a good resource for those riders. Other riders take offense to the concept of “speed runs”... at least I’ve gotten some pushback on it in the past. Thoughts?
