The springtime holidays generally allow for a little time away from the office. If you’re a cyclist, your idea of a vacation involves plenty of riding and good food to fuel your activities! I’ve spent the past week training in Marin County, California. I may have squeaked out a complaint or two about always having to go uphill, but I was always rewarded with spectacular scenery and fun and fast descents.
Closer to home, the forecast for this weekend’s weather is perfect for riding. Attend your favorite group ride or get in some solo training.
Hillsboro RoubaixThis is like the season opener for cycling in the Midwest. Hillsboro Roubaix attracts large competitive fields as well as race distances and landscape to challenge each field.
