Time on the saddle

Just showered up after a fridgid ride with the usual suspects, Jeff and Barry (and Bronte dog). Bone chilling cold out there, or maybe all the mild weather has turned me into a whuss...nah. Barry's knowledge of every local patch of woods is unrivaled as he once again led us on some extremely rocky terrain around Millstone hill. Tough trails.

Congrats go out to my good friend Jeff as he will be tearing up the race scene for Independent Fabrication this coming season. Great opportunity for him to ride with a solid race team and further his personal goal of being a faster human on a bike.

It's been a good week of training for me on the bike. Sights are set on the Cohutta 100 for sure. Dusted off the cob-webs on my hardtail and did a bunch of mid week a.m. training rides. Looking to get a 5 hour ride in on Saturday to bring the week total up to 13 or 14 hours. Also, looks like the north east will be hit by a big storm that could potentially blanket the trails with a foot of powder. :( Hope we can dodge that bullet but snow is inevitable at some point.
