Scenes from Mountain Training Camp

Scenes from mountain training we do in advance of big events like PBP. Temps were much cooler than the flatlands with lots of shade and plenty of challenging climbs, like the one up 226A to Little Switzerland....

Ed,

Capn has a mountain house. It's 600 feet DOWN to the BRP from there and a brutal 600 feet over 1 mile back up to it at the end of the day. We were doing about 6,500 feet per 60 miles by dropping down the mountain then climbing back up and riding some Parkway miles as well. Terrific training.

See you in France I hope.

Mike
