Yeah, I need to get some mountain riding in (somewhere) during April if I'm going to be ready for my traditional centuries in May and June. I don't leave the valley during the winter.

June 20. It's quite a bit tougher than the 3-State 3-Mountain ride, though.

They continue to sport a picture of NealH on the website (bottom left).

My bike rides me daily.
I ride it around 4-5 days a week when it is not in a pissy mood.
