How much climbing did you do in 2022?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

I used to live in Lake City and would ride the Burke to Kirkland and back for work. The climb up to Lake City, other than Lake City Way was always short and intense and the climb up and over Finn Hill was a good workout. But you are right, anything around Seattle other than the Burke-G was uphill.

Strava has me at a little over 530,000 feet but I should add a little more if the weather holds.

I used to live in Jax so I am intimately familiar with the "bridges"!
