    Annual elevation. What's yours?
    My goal was to climb 1/2 million feet this year and I'm going to fall short. Unless...

    Currently I'm at 435,197ft

    427,119ft...last year 544,021ft...what a difference the Strava team climb challenge had. (that and the decision to start making LOTS of home brew.)

    458k. I hit my 500k mark from sept-sept (517,612 ), which was my goal when I got my garmin.

    Everyone I hear that goes for a 10,000mi year or a million footie mark, says they literally spend so much time on the bike that they regret the decision. Loss of family time, never see your friends. But to someone fresh out of college, it sounds like such an awesome challenge.

    Nice work everyone!

    I use Strava to track miles and elevation. Started using it on May 26 of this year. Not sure of what my elevation was before that but it couldn't have been much because I didn't feel like I did many long climbs until I bought my GT Avalanche and started riding trails. I can only think of 3 rides I didn't record and they were like cruising town to do errands anyways except for one iPhone malfunction on a trail ride.

    Currently at 717,917 - should be able to get 750,000 barring any long spells of bad weather. Most of my friends ride, so the not-getting-to-see-friends thing doesn't really apply. If anything, I've made more new friends - almost every weekend is road trip to ride somewhere cool, and I'm always looking for people to join me :)

    Haven't done a ton of feet but I did average 115 feet per mile and 1187 feet per hour. Although if you consider the fact that you have to come down in order to go up, total feet per *climbing* mile would be 230. :)

    This past year has been pretty crappy as far as how much time I've had to go ride. I have had a lot of time to spend with my son, so that part is very good, but the not riding much has made me a royal pain in the ass to live with this last year.

    Funny you should ask, looks like I'll hit 500,000' sometime today. Garmin says:

    Elevation Gain:
    499,646 ft

    I'm riding less this year; just bike commuting and pleasure riding. My ride home from work is minimum 1100' uphill every night. I bike commute 3-4 times a week.

    Edit: Strava says 483,645ft. Yeah, I upload to both.

    Regardless of how many miles we rode or climbed, I hope you all had a fun time on your bike!

    I will only include mountain bike stats since this is a MOUNTAIN bike site;)

    131 activities
    4,447 miles
    510,619 of elevation gain

    The thing I'm most excited about is the 11.5 mph average on the MTB that I seem to have been able to hold the last few years. Also averaging almost 34 miles a ride is exciting as well. Getting older sucks, but staying about the same speed does offer hope:p

    I haven't ridden the road bike since April, but got another 2000 miles and about 130'000' of vert on it this year. Looking to ride the roadie even less next year.

    Wow Sean you are a beast!! I was hoping all stats would be mtb from everyone one but I guess most riders do both. I get a little whiney when I have to ride a little road to connect to another trail. Anyway, very fast average speed. Impressive.

    As kind of a standard, I mostly ride the ARSA (clementine, culvert, FHDL, etc) and I logged a 144.

    Not sure where rednova rides, but it must be on the side of a cliff.

    If you worked up some averages this metric could serve as a good way of rating rides and riding areas. I'll have to throw that in the strava suggestion box.

    you can get 250-325ft+ a mile in auburn based on some routes. It won't be fun though.

    I was pretty obsessed with tracking elevation last year, but have stopped this year. A lot of commitments are keeping me to 1 mtb ride a week so trying to squeeze more time in on the bike via commuting which is pretty flat. More miles, but while I was ahead of last year through June or July I'm pretty sure my total would be under 250K if I was still tracking every ride.

    rednova's numbers are from Marin, most good riding here requires a lot of steep climbing. It's hard to ride 20 miles without at least 3.7-4K of climbing, 187 is right on the money.

    I'm with Buzz Cut. No electronics for me. If I were aiming for some arbitrary mileage, or climbing goal, it would just stress me out. I ride to relieve stress, not add to it.
