The ice storm passed in time for the group ride on Saturday and left us with a lovely grey, damp and cold day (very reminiscent of England actually!). After 85 miles on the wet, salt and grit laden roads I think I have a pretty good idea of what bike tires produce the most spray and how to wipe my glasses while riding so I can at least partially see the road....I know the ride will serve me well once the summer comes!
Me after the ride, nice and grimy and not the most appealing picture! We're off to South Carolina tomorrow and some warmer temps :-)
- Perfect day out on the trails yesterday on the @alchemybicycles at #schaefferfarms . . . . . . #IFB #parvillacycles #MTB #xterratriathlon #mtbracing #marathonmtb
- Kind of a rough day at 6hrs at Woodstock. First 3.5 hrs were fine (even with a 10min stop for horses on the trail) and then stomach shut down. Probably related to stomach bug earlier in the week. Decided not to head out for another lap. Great trails though and a good race from Joe's Bike Shop as always. 📸: @dchammerette . . . . #6HAW #parvillacycles #mtbracing #mtbmarathon #IFB #patapsco #mtb
- Got to ride the trails at Marine Corp Base Quantico yesterday at the Quantico Epic....50 miles of awesomeness despite the muddy trails. Gradually feeling like I have recovered from the #bestbikegameever . . . . . . #marathonmtb #parvillacycles #alchemybicycles #IFB #quanticoepic #cycling #mtbracing
