    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

    Me too, currently at 455k, but lost a few rides worth about 10k. Going to try hard to crack it.

    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.)
    I'm not sure how this works.

    I hadnt ridden in 15years and started up again in late feb. Only been avg 2 rides a week and I should crack 108k tomorrow. Feel like my strength is finally starting to show up. I'm a full blown junkie now
    I hope you have a big trunk... cause I'm gonna put my bike in it!

    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

    I'm guessing this is going to be on the flatter side of things. From strava,

    Year-to-Date
    Distance 5,354.7mi
    Time 389hr 13m
    Elev Gain 356,752ft
    Rides 219

    lots of flat commutes into the wind.

    With my insane work schedule I only get 1:30 to ride a day - a little longer on the weekends, but I work most weekends.

    I've only done 227K in the last year. I think I did less than 5 road rides this entire year.

    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.
