Winter can be lonely months for training, and so that is why each month, this dedicated team of women racers look to ride together. Both for camaraderie and to get to know each other's riding styles and strengths in readiness for race season. Last Sunday was our November ride date, the temps were certainly chilly and it was significantly windy but after our team owner Teresa checked her 10 weather apps (only joking she just checked 4) we all headed out for a 40 mile loop. Only missing a couple of our team mates due to the Thanksgiving holiday weekend we had a nice size pace-line all sporting our new Vice Pink Bontrager helmets. The group was a mix of all our category riders and the aim of the ride was to keep it together and work on some skill development with our newbies. It was a a solid winter pace and everyone did their share of work based upon their skill level and fitness.
A great end to the Thanksgiving weekend, to ride together, take some cool photo's on our new Trek Bikes and eat some fabulous home-made Lentil soup and pulled pork (made by Teresa's fair hands) after the ride.
How lucky do I feel to be part of this amazing team!
