    How much climb in your " AVERAGE" ride?

    I was just checking my numbers for the year and they come up with an average ride of
    28.55 miles with 2543 feet of elevation gain. Now I know that is not much compared to a lot of you out there, so let's hear some numbers.

    Well I've had an off year so my numbers are way down but so far this year my average ride is 65 miles with 3265 feet per ride. Another good "average" is how many feet you climb per mile. In years past I've had it around 77 feet per mile but this year so far it's only been 50.2 feet per mile.

    I don't climb enough to factor in my rides. Sometimes I climb sometimes I don't.

    August was 536 miles with 20,000 ft. 18,000 was in 6 rides so that's a 3000 average as far as climbing rides for the month.
    ------
    average ride of 35.76 and 1333 average as far as elevation gain for the entire month totals.

    My yearly average rides, maybe 10 feet every 300 miles.

    Seems the name is well deserved. I am curious, what is your all time one day high? Rallison, what about yours?

    By the way, you wanted to know how many times this year, the answer including the last one, 18 times.

    I think my highest was Breathless Agony this year. With a wrong turn included, the Garmin showed 124 miles and 14,000 or so feet. I was pretty dead by the end of it.

    Well it isn't all I do, but it is the main part of my riding. 70% of all my rides from the first of January have included GMR in them. Have been trying to get more flat miles in just to do more spinning, but end up missing the mountains. What is a person to do? LOL

    17 miles 1200 feet. That's the weekday ride at least. On the weekends I'm always doing something different.
