So much for warm weather—off the bike for two days amid the drizzle. Tomorrow, it’s a ride day whether its pouring rain or not.
I’m mapping out my 2014 rides to prepare for the 2014 Everest Challenge.
I had a strong season in 2012 that I attribute in good measure to completing a variety of challenging rides during the season: Death Valley Double, Solvang Spring Double, Devil Mountain Double, Alta Alpina 8-Pass Challenge (and Sequoia Century 200K and Trek to the Summit of White Mountain Peak).
So this year my plan is to emulate that approach, though Death Valley Double has been cancelled by employess of the NPS jobs program.
The one ride I am unsure of as yet (my right leg has to be in full agreement) is the Four Horsemen of the Solstice (invitation only, see also AntiGravity calendar). Essentially, it is the Everest Challenge+extra in one day.
