Doug gets high

Dougy Fresh is a little strange.

Doug likes to climb things.
Doug rode La Ruta de los Conquistadores in Costa Rica last year. Climbing over 14,000 feet across sixty miles during just one of the legs of the race.
He took second place overall (single-speed) last year in the National Untra-Endurance Mountain Bike Series.
He likes to climb things over a long period of time. 100 miles on dirt? Not me -- maybe in the old 'Rover.
He entered a Cat. 2 Cyclocross race on a 40/20 single-speed.

So what's he up to now?

Climbing Mount Mitchell on a single-speed. It's down in North Carolina and it's the highest peak east of the Mississippi. Why? He'd already done Mount Washington.
Get more pics at his blog.

Just for that, Doug, I'm going to ride farther past the bar than I have ever ridden tonight!

Just checked out that Doug guy's blog on your recommendation. Sounds like he likes pain! I'm gonna go eat another muffin (I don't like pain so much...).

Peace and Happy New Year!
Ride One or Ride None!
