September 10, 2018  •  Leave a Comment
Today’s Highlights: Today’s ride was very challenging, covering 78 miles and climbing almost 7000 ft. I started at 6:50 AM and finished at 4:00 PM.

At mile 8 I c...

Today’s Highlights: I was in Jackson Hole for my 63rd birthday and had a brilliant idea to cycle 63 mile to celebrate the occasion. It seemed like a good idea at the time.
