Spring Dirt

Took off with Wil to Richmond for the first leg of his 200k pre-ride and course check. Met Greg for some dirt climbing. Wes White Hill, East Road and Taft Road in Huntington, then a sloppy ride down Dugway above the Huntington Gorge. Brutal cold headwind coming back north and east. I finished with ~50, steep climbing up Wes White and East Road. Firm dirt to start, sloppy to finish.

Met some folks taking the pets out for a stroll…

Good day out. Tough start, my quads were pretty sore from Friday yoga. After a caffeine break and some warm sun things got better. Blue blue sky and sun today… aside from the wind – perfect.

    Great photos. There must have been a lot packed into that approx. 50-mile ride.

    Thought this was appropriate for the upcoming brevet season, http://www.yehudamoon.com/index.php?date=2011-04-03

    Thanks Steve. Quite a few folks have sent that to me! Since I’m the guy writing the cue sheets for routes in VT I don’t have the problem of persistent cue paranoia… 😉

    I do have the problem of most of my time on the bike being slow… but that is an engine problem, more than a randonneuring problem.
