Snow Ride With the Team

23 Jan

After Saturdays brutal ride in the Wiss I was hoping to give the legs a bit of a break. Went to my teammates house where we were trying on the new kits for sizing. Really excited for the design this year, the kits should be legit. Anyways we had planned to have a road ride but had to a cross/mtb ride due to the snow.

It was cold out ~25°F so everyone stayed in the house until it was ready to roll.

Cruising to Schuylkill River Trail

The SRT was brutal with a think layer of ice on top of the snow. A small section of the trail was plowed which gave our legs hope then around the next corner it was back to chugging away.

We opted to head to Valley Forge to hit some clearer roads.

Some people opted for hike-a-bike ‘shortcuts’ during a few races we partook in.

As I was setting up my camera for a team photoshoot a car full of people drove by and said they could take our photo.

Back across the bridge/chute whose wooden slates made for a slick ride.

The legs were ready to home after all that snow/torture.

On the commute into work this morning I could feel the miles over the weekend. I rode about 4.5hours during the weekend which is a ton more than usual. It finally feels like winter and I’m loving it!
