It was a great time at the @quickndirtymtb #Dirty30 race. Beat my last year’s time by 30 minutes for 14th out of 39 in my category. Also met NBA legend/mountain biker @reggiemillertnt and won an awesome @pedalindustries race bag in the raffle. Makes up for my backpack being stolen at the last race after my car was broken into. Thanks to the race organization for the event and @wildglassphoto for the sick shots.

Flashback to the @quickndirtymtb #Filthy50 race in October, the fastest and longest mountain bike race I’ve done at 51 miles. I was stoked to finish strong in the middle of the field without any issues but that all went away when I returned to my car and found that it was broken into while racing. Hoping for better luck tomorrow at the #Dirty30.

Had a blast last weekend with my friends riding the @bajabikerace from Tecate to Ensenada. Maintained a 20mph average over 69 miles and 3500’ of climbing for 14th out of 61 in my age category and 68/322 overall.

I’m super stoked to have completed the hardest ride of my life today, the 107 mile course of the #TourdeBigBear. I only decided to do it a few days in advance and wasn’t even sure I could finish, but ended up with great results. Almost 10k’ of climbing in a little over 6 hours with an average speed of 17 mph, and I even finished 35th out of 463 riders on one of the major climbs. Consistent training and dedication to the bike over the past 10 years has earned the achievement of something I previously never thought I was capable of.

Off work, with family, riding the mountains of my hometown from my grandmother’s.

Today marks my 2000th mile of 2018. A hopeful 3000 more to reach my goal for the year. #bikeislife #blackcyclist #cyclist #cycling #strava #adamsavenuebikes #aabikes #gsaab
