I Like to Ride My Bicycle . . .

This is the route of my bike ride today (The blue and pink dots are where I stopped for quick water breaks):


6.3 miles, which looks like a decent ride, right? Well, here is an illustration of the elevation I was working with:

Turns out it was an AWESOME ride! One of my goals this month was to get to the top of that freaking hill on my bike, and even though this morning when I set out I figured I'd go ride on campus, and maybe the neighborhood directly east of it, I decided to take on the hill. I've got to admit, I feel pretty accomplished. It's only 305 feet of elevation gain, but it felt like a monster! What a great ride!

Hey, you took the words right out of my mouth!! "Great jorb" says it all. You're awesome, Kristin, and my heroine! (because I'm trying to be politically correct, not because I do drugs)

Yeah for bike rides! Mark and I took a bike ride the other day on the greenbelt here in Boise. It was about 15 miles, but it was all flat and mostly shady and beautiful. No hills for me. I'm a pansy! Impressive!

Dude you kill me. Where do you even find these graphs. I'm so proud of you that you made it to the top of the hill. There is nothing better than we you accomplish a goal especially a fitness goal. You rock dude. Come out to Colorado and we can bike together.
