    I'd like to take at least a little of the credit for that :) You'll love Strava, I think... maybe not as much as I do though? See my post here about the lengths I'll go to for good Strava data.

    1073m of elevation is more than I thought you'd see there in the Valley. Looks like a good one actually. I've heard there's one in Penticton that's quite nice too, though can be stifling hot.
