In July this year, a group from the club is headed to Italy for a week of fully supported touring. They’ll put in more than seven MILES of climbing in the Dolomites. In preparation, we gather each Sunday to help them train for this and many other upcoming mountainous rides of the season.

Personally, I’m training for Iron Horse Bicycle Classic in Durango over Memorial Day weekend. 52 miles and 6500 feet of climbing in a race against the train from Durango to Silverton, Colorado. The last time I did this ride, it took me 4 hours and 35 minutes. The train does it in a little over three hours. Stay tuned!!

Revert to Original Bars

Luckily I had saved the cables.

The trekking bars just weren’t comfortable. Back to these.

Not sure about the wrapping yet, but I’ll take them out for a ride naked and get them dialed-in.
