The Wrap Up of Rapha Rising

So I knew I had a chance in hell in really completing Rapha Rising I thought I would give it a try. Emphasize TRY. So a couple days I rode my new rig and my fixed without any measuring device.  Oh well it was fun getting out putting in the miles.

In total I wound up with 7,789ft climbed of 68,897 required by Rapha Rising. 

Thanks to Rapha for throwing down one hell of a challenge. Maybe next year I will plan better to head to some mountains.
