300,000 feet in 2021
According to Strava, over the weekend, I passed 300,000 feet climbed on my bikes this year.
300,000 feet was my yearly goal for 2021. I still have over a month of cycling to go before the end of the year, but with the cold weather, I probably won't do a whole lot of climbing in the next month.
As I mentioned when I first mentioned the goal, to get to 300,000 feet in the year, I was going to have to average 822 feet climbed every day.
That is quite a bit. As of today, I've averaged 928 feet per day, which is even more. This is certainly the most climbing I've done in my life.
For what it is worth, I've also cycled more miles this year than last year, which makes this the highest number of miles I've ever ridden in a year.
Not bad for an old couch potato.
I'm not sure what cycling goals I'll have for next year. We'll see what I come up with.

Mr. Awesome vs. Mountain Time
As you may remember if you follow this blog ... not too long ago I brewed Mr. Awesome Merican Lager (Batch 300).
This is my first recipe that I've called an American Lager style of beer.
I was inspired by New Belgium's Mountain Time Premium Lager, which has become a favorite local commercial beer for the Beer Model and myself over the summer.
I kegged a couple of weeks ago. I added gelatin a couple days later, and it has been carbonating since then.
I poured some a couple days ago and noticed its carbonation and clarity was about perfect. Not to mention it was delicious.
I had some Mountain Time in the fridge and thought it would be fun to compare the two beers.
So, I did.

10th Everest of 2021
According to Strava, I've climbed 291,913 feet on my bikes this year. This means I passed up my 10th Everest in my #10Everestsin2021 goal.
Mission accomplished. Sort of.
For my official Strava climbing goal, I rounded up to 300,000 feet. (see #10Everestsin2021), so I still have some climbing to do over the next couple months.
With shorter days, especially with the end of daylight savings time, I'll have less time to bike outside, so I'll probably slow down.
Even so, another 8,000 feet should be easy to accomplish.
I'll probably let you know when I pass up 300,000 feet. Follow Sheppy's Blog: #10Everestsin2021 to see.

O is for Oasis Brewery
It struck me that if I went down the list, the starting letters of the brewery names represented almost every letter of the alphabet. That was when I started my A to Z Denver Breweries Project on this blog.
