(LONG SLOW DISTANCE) Mr Russell, our new Vermonty python friend Matt, and Myself went out for a long slow ride today and hit some sweet gravel road climbs and descents South and West of town. We were pleaseantly suprised by snow up on the north facing roads and got a little mud in our faces on the south facing roads.
The ride made for a great elevation profile with three big gravel road climbs and descents on Troxel Gap Road, Hite Hollow Road, and Old Parkersburg Turpike. Those roads are great climbs and scary descents but I have decided I need to ge tout and more rides like the today as it was fun to have a lot of variety in the road surface. 65 miles in March felt good and should be a good leadout for the five hour Camp Hilbert enduro next Sunday.
