    Did any other clydes/athenas just finish ALC 2013?

    For someone with tendonitis who wasn't sure he was gonna finish the first day and wasn't supposed to climb...I think 454 miles and 18k feet of climbing in a week doesn't suck too bad. Next year I'll ride every mile.

    This is the first I heard of it. I'll keep an open mind about next year. Time off may be an issue, and I kinda suck at fundraising, but an average of 75mi/day sounds doable, and that route looks great.
    As much as you paid for that Beemer [Mercedies, Audi, Escalade], I'm surprised it didn't come equipped with turn signals.

    There are some really long days (one is 108, one is 97) but the shorter days have more hills. I was looking forward to Day 5 with only 47 miles but there were some BIG climbs.

    An old friend of mine is on Team Colorado and has been doing the ride for several years. He's been a big inspiration to me to get out and ride.
