I rode the Breck to Copper Loop over Wheeler pass yesterday. As I passed out of the ski area to the 4WD road I came up on a guy who was pushing his bike. He must have weighed 400 pounds. He was sweating and working hard and it didn't seem like he was having fun, but he seemed determined and assuming he had ridden from the bottom be had already climbed 1500' of vert. I don't know if he made it to the pass, still a couple miles of rocky jeep road and a thousand feet above, but he was heading that way.

If you are reading, all I have to say is YOU ROCK big guy! With so many Americans obese, you are getting out and trying to do something about it! Stick with it and although it will be hard and will take time, it will make such a positive change in your life on so many levels
