OK - Since the Steelers didn't do anything this weekend, I thought I'd share what I did, which is the biggest bike ride I have ever done. Good thing, Like Kramer, "I have the body of a taught pre-teen Swedish boy".
Previously, the most ascent/climbing (The Garmin link calls it elevation gain) I have had on a ride is approx 4,200 ft. This ride was almost 5,900 ft and Pretty much all of it above 10,000 ft. I do OK until about 11,000 ft. After that body size and weight start workig against you even more than usual, so I start getting slow.
One website, where I found this ride, said the average time for this ride is 7.5 hours and I did it in 8. I feel pretty good about that since in the biking world, 190 lbs is considered obese, regardless of height, and anything over 210 is considered a joke. More affectionately reffered to as a Clyde (clydesdale). Having said that, I feel pretty good about my time.
I don't currently have a chest strap, so all the heart rate info and calorie burn info is waaaay off. For calorie burn I was probably, atleast 6,500 if not closer to 7,500 with an average HR of approx 160. http://connect.garmin.com/activity/113523389
EDIT: When the link is open, click "Aerial" on the map to get a Google Earth type of view.
That's all I got.
