Training rides

 Fully loaded and ready to roll

Fully loaded and ready to roll

 

It's time to get serious! If you live in Chapel Hill, you may have noticed members of our cycling crew crusing around town on bikes that look like they are loaded and ready for a Zombie Apocalypse! Our rides include full panniers, tents, and yes the requisite basketball strapped to the back for that quick pick up game. 

With a mere 4 weeks until departure, our capstone training event will be a Memorial Weekend trip to the Blue Ridge Parkway, where we will take on some serious grades, including an ascent of Mount Mitchell. Look for the after action report on this final training event before we ship our bikes to Oregon. 

Oh, and I'm also practicing blogging from my iPhone (including this post) so we will see how it goes!
