Alpine mountain bike rides are one of my favorite things. There's nothing like riding a narrow single track on the side of a mountain. Thankfully, I live in an area where there are more high-country trails than I can ride over the course of a summer. This year I've been making a point do as many as possible. Here are a few glimpses into some of my recent rides.
Unless you've been self-isolating without internet access you're undoubtedly aware that practically all cycling, triathlon, and running events have been canceled or postponed for the near future. These events serve as outlets and focal points to many of us.They give us something to built up to and provide opportunities to connect with friends and other like-minded people, and it's a huge letdown for them to be gone. Ironically, their absence give us the ability to create a summer to remember.
Congratulations to Nick Gould and teammate, Travis Hauck, for dominating the Open Men Duo category at TransRockies Classic with an overall time of 24:34:48 while winning all seven stages!
