    60 miles, 7,000 feet of climbing, and three of the best mountains in Massachusetts!

    I give you....

    The Berkshire Triple Crown!

    I built my own race this past weekend, and took it on a test run. It's grueling climb after grueling climb, but there's plenty of relief with some quick pit-stops at local eateries.

    I'd love to get more people involved when I repeat it next year. Maybe bring a little cycling culture to my home town in the process...

    Thoughts?

    Yeah, I don't take it for granted. Still, the last little bit is important; everyone's got some epic ride in their backyard.

    That looks like fun... going to be in Beckett end of the month, no time for riding though, teaching a short course. I've had the bike down that way a couple of times. Nice riding...

    What bag are you using in your anything cage?
    So long. Been nice knowing you BF.... to all the friends I've made here and in real life... its been great. But this place needs an enema.

    I wish it were special. It's a cheap stuff sack that came with my thermarest wrapped in a Snow Peak mesh sack. There's a raincoat in there.

    Really, you should end at East Side Cafe or Teo's Hot Dogs in Pittsfield.
