Training Camp 2011: Day 3

Filed under: Trail Riding,Training — Andrea @ 8:33 am

Yesterday morning, I rolled in to town to make a WalMart run and to meet up with Nate, Sue, Tim, and Collin, who had been driving all night from Virginia. They made it in sometime around 9:00, and we stopped at the Country Time restaurant for some breakfast before heading up to the cabin.

Since everyone was prettymuch a  road zombie, they unpacked a little and took a nap.

I figured that the orange and green trails were a good sampling of Syllamo terrain, so we hit those for a late afternoon ride (as you can see in the photos, the light is pretty low by the time we reached the green trail overlook). Amazingly enough, even after yesterday’s 5 hours of trail time, I felt really good (with the exception of one slip/fall on a slick rock at the end of the green loop. OW)

P.S. The top of the Cedar Scrappy climb on the orange trail is no longer to be considered “hike-a-bike”… at least by anyone with a granny gear.

  1. Tell sue I’m glad she won against USA Cycling. Those guys are a bunch of twits.
    There’s a good thread going over on cycling dirt about USAC killing off the Verge series.

  2. I see an awesome line in the back of the top right photo, is that the orange or green trail?
