IMCdA Training Summary: Week 3

You may notice this week’s summary is missing a couple days.  That’s because I’m riding Levi’s Gran Fondo tomorrow and I think it will be worthy of its own post.  Stay tuned for a photo-centric recap of my 103 mile (and 9,000 ft of climbing) ride through Sonoma County. Hopefully, I will HTFU and make it to the finish!

In preparation for the ride, I gave my road bike (The Sixy Beast) some much-needed TLC. I gave him a sponge bath, replaced his chain, and lubed him up real good 😉

  1. It’s too late to wish you good luck with all that climbing, I just know it will be easier without those reflectors weighing you down. Looking forward to hearing how it went, it dounds like a great event.
