MY FITNESS LEVEL…
Fitness is central to my life. I ride my bike regularly on a weekly basis and am comfortable with rides of 2 hours or more at a relatively strong pace.

I ENJOY…
All terrain, with hills and some moderate mountain passes that I can brag about. I like getting some speed on moderate descents.

MY AVERAGE DAY ON THE BIKE…
Around 3-4 hours of riding. I can ride about 45 miles, and up to 70 miles on a long day at 18-22 MPH average speed

I’M COMFORTABLE CLIMBING…
Hills, mountains, and everything in between. Around 3,500 feet of climbing, to 7,000 feet on a hard day.

FOR MOUNTAIN BIKE TRIPS…
My fitness level: I am comfortable on 4 hour plus rides at a moderate pace, of 12-18 miles in length with numerous technical climbs and descents throughout. I exercise at least 4 days a week.

My skill level: I have been mountain biking for at least two years and am able to control my speed and direction on moderately steep and technical single-track trails. I am comfortable descending on loose or uneven terrain, including rocks, gravel, tree roots and small drops.
