ET’s Bob Wilson bikes 123 miles and up 12,000 feet!

Bob Wilson at Finish

Our head of Merchandise Sales, Bob Wilson, put his athleticism and bike riding prowess to the test last weekend as he participated in the grueling bike ride through the mountains of Colorado known as the Triple Bypass.

Bob spent 10 hours riding 123 miles over three mountain ranges reaching as high as 12,000 feet, finishing the ride, appropriately, in Evergreen, Colorado – the home of Evergreen Trading’ founder Gordon Zellner and his family. Given the range of altitude, diverse weather conditions were to be expected. Bob rode through stiff wind, rain, fog, hot sun, and freezing air.

Having trained for this ride for the last few months, Bob got himself in top condition, but still admitted to not being sure if he would be able to endure. “Looking up at those massive mountains before the race, I was a little scared – and wondered whether I was in good enough shape to make it to the finish, confessed Bob.

Well, Bob did better than just finish. He finished within the top 12% of these elite bikers, and as you can see from the photo, had energy to spare!
