I can say, that while I was in Seattle for work, I saw the sun break through the clouds for a total of about 1 hour over the span of 5 days. It was great to be back on the bike...and in Colorado for a blue bird day. Temps in the high 60F's made for a fantastic bike session. Lets see here. Lets count the clouds today. One. Two. Yep, two....and a full day of sunshine. Fantastic!
Arm warmers...leave them at home. Leg and knee warmers....leave those at home as well. The workouts over the next week and a half are all focused on the Ouachita Challenge. The OC race is a great event utilizing, in my mind, one of the best trail systems in the southern USA. 60+ mile race, and about 80% of it is on rocky shoulder wide singletrack. I am hoping now, that I can get on some dirt here in CO before the event. Trails are dry...or getting dry. But the long term forecast is looking more like winter. Boo!
