So far the training has been good, two days and 8 hours of riding. I'm still hanging on to my cold though so I've been cutting the rides shorter than the others just so I don't over do it. Today the sun is out for the first time so it should be great out, nice mountain views and warm temps are always motivating for a good ride. Well, that and 4 other hammerheads to ride with! It's so easy to do these long rides with a fast group of guys that are as motivated as you. 20mph averages are way better than slogging it out by myself down and empty beach.
So far we're only averaging one flat a day.
Today's sun will definitely melt the snow off the road.
