My hip has been going strong for the past 6 years. I have been riding my bicycle for the past several years for exercise; I have recently been more aggressive in going further and training to enter into long-distance competitive cycling events. In the cycling world, the equivalent of a marathon is called a “Century” – it is a 100 mile bike ride often including large hills and other challenging terrain.
This past weekend I tried one for the first time and successfully completed it! I rode 102 miles, with total elevation gains of 7000’. The event was in San Diego, CA, it was called the San Diego Gran Fondo.
