Alabama may not have a lot of FKT routes yet, but FKTs are increasing in popularity here. Six of the posted 12 routes (50%) and variations do not have women’s posted times as of late (though many do exist as Strava records).
In 2022, women set 1 new FKT (20% of the total) while men snagged 4. We would love to see 50% of the new FKTs claimed by women in the years to come.
If you want to set an FKT on a route that does not have a posted women’s FKT, you should search for known times on Strava and Google.
