July’s hill climbing challenge did just what it was designed to do, get you out there pedaling. Ok, we’ll get me out there pedaling. A couple other local riders nailed it as well. Congratulations go out to Bill and Eric. They will drink from their well earned Riding Milford/Action Bikes and Outdoor, ceramic coffee mugs. I will too, although I snatched my mug as soon as they arrived.
Just to show how a goal can push you, here are a few stats from the month of July that are attributable to the hill challenge:
Bill, finished the challenge in only 11 days.
The three riders that finished the challenge, logged a total of 1,266 miles and 88,562 feet of elevation.
Pretty good for a few middle aged men!
Unfortunately, I’m going to suspend the challenge. I do not want anyone getting hurt while climbing up hills and hammering down the other side. We will think up another way to get you outside and on your bike, soon. Until then, ride on!
