Has anybody climbed Saltbox Hill near Biggin Hill airport? I went up there today and oh my god, I thought my legs were going to fall off

Wow what a reminder that I'm still a beginner. Plenty more trips up that and other hills are needed I think.

Actually you can. Use Endomondo to upload your rides, then extract your GPX files from the website and upload them to Strava. My friend does this.

I have just started doing this on my Windows phone. It is very easy to download/upload the gpx files.
