After having snow, sleet, and rain both Friday/Saturday Mother Nature gave us a gift on Sunday with sunshine and 50 degree temps. Took the road bike out for a nice wet, dirty, and light rolling 25 miles. Let's hope this is the sign of better days to come. Because March wasn't nice here in Central Massachusetts. I've got a 74 mile ride with 6,000 feet of climbing the end of April so it was spin, spin, and spin some more today.

Let's hope the weather cooperates for you and gets warmer and better in the next few weeks so you can get prepared. The climbing has to be tough. It sure is on me and I do not have near the inclines here in fl that you do.

Good luck

Thanks Baldy, I love climbing I just haven's been able to get out much this year because of all the snow. The good side was that when I was able to get out for short rides (15miles) because of the weather it was with the single speed. I run a 52/15 and it got the legs up and running a little quicker than expected. Just working on spinning and staying seated more because I'm more of an out of the saddle climber.
