MY FITNESS LEVEL…
I ride my bike an average of 100 miles per week and enjoy a fast pace for an extended period of time. I love to train, improve, and maybe even race my friends.

I ENJOY…
All terrain, with hills and big mountain passes. Steep technical descents are fun and I enjoy a challenge.

MY AVERAGE DAY ON THE BIKE…
Around 4-5 hours of riding. I can ride about 60 miles at an average speed of 23+ MPH and up to 110 miles on a long day.

I’M COMFORTABLE CLIMBING…
There’s no hill too long or steep. Around 5,000 feet of climbing, to 8,000 feet on a hard day.

FOR MOUNTAIN BIKE TRIPS…
My fitness level: I am comfortable on 5-plus hour rides at a fast pace of 17-30 miles in length with long technical climbs and descents. I exercise 5 or more days per week and consider myself very physically fit.

My skill level: I am a strong rider who has been mountain biking for 5 or more years and am comfortable climbing and descending steep, technical and exposed terrain that includes rocks, tree roots, primitive trail surfaces, tight switchbacks, short drops and jumps.
