... are killer.
Rode almost 21 miles on a gravel/packed dirt MUP today. For those in the Seattle area, it was the Snoqualmie Valley Trail. We rode the section between the Duvall park and ride and the south and of Carnation. We wanted to try to go a bit further, but were half way through our water and did not want to stop for refills this time.
After the ride I noticed that my upper body (especially the triceps around the elbow) was suffering much worse then my legs. Short of toning up these areas, does anyone have any advice for other areas to focus on for rides like this? We're going to make this a regular every other or third weekend ride.
