2017 M2D: Ride With Local, Elite Athletes Hilaree & TJ

2017 M2D: Ride With Local, Elite Athletes Hilaree & TJ

 

Ride M2D 2017 with Elite Athletes Hilaree Oneil and TJ Eisenhart

 

M2D is in awe of Hilaree being amazing at just about everything including getting on a road bike
last year and being the first woman across the finish line. Outside magazine named Hilaree one of the most adventurous women in the world of sports.
 
She is the first woman to climb two 8,000 meter peaks in 24 hours, Everest and Lhotse.
Hilaree is a North Face Athlete. Join us Friday the 22nd to meet Hilaree. She will share with us her motivation and inspiration with
some slides from her summer adventures on Denali and The Peak of Evil in India.
 
Then try to chase her down on the Mountains to Desert Ride September 23rd!

 

 

TJ is shaking up the cycling world with his unique style. TJ says about racing “this is where I’m meant to be”.
 

His spirit and talent got him to a 4th place ranking in the 2017 pro race tour. “I love cycling because I like the feeling of
being completely fatigued – when your mind is faded, when you’re at your most vulnerable point.
 
It’s really refreshing and cleansing. I’m a pretty happy dude. A lot of people like to see happiness.
And then there are those that say, “This guy is off his rocker.” But that’s okay. I’m just being me.
 
I want to change the perception of cycling, give it personality and fun. Don’t get me wrong,
I will race with heart of a lion, but if you’re not having fun on your bike, get off.”
 

Does it feel like Summer is slipping away? FEAR NOT!

Does it feel like Summer is slipping away? FEAR NOT!

  

There’s plenty of daylight left for you to explore,

enjoy and invigorate your self.

Colorado offers many wonderful challenges and opportunities to maximize your outdoor experience.

 

If you feel a crick in your neck when you look up at the tops of the mountains in Colorado, there’s a good reason.

Colorado has the most peaks over 14,000 feet of any state of our nation. 58 in total, a number that is debated but is the official count by the Colorado Geological Survey.

Others claim 53. But who’s counting? Perhaps the number most important to you is the number you have or will summit in your lifetime.

If this is your first attempt to tackle a big climb, perhaps you might adhere to the advice from the Coloradan, on the top beginner 14ers.

 

Or maybe you are in the elite class of highly trained athletes looking to break records.

Here is the account of Andrew Hamilton, speed climber’s jaw-dropping expedition to climb all 58 peaks in record time.
