The Year End Review

Another year in the books. And, I guess you could say 2018 was for the books. I set records for total distance ridden, total elevation gained, longest ride, fastest average 20K speed, and I’m sure there are others I didn’t even realize. I’m for what I accomplished, especially since I thought 2017 was such an amazing year. Here’s to 2019!

  • Total Distance: 10,897 miles
  • Total Elevation: 547,400 feet
  • Longest Ride: 125 miles (Tour de Big Bear HC, 8/4/18)
