Skiing in the woods somewhere

February has been the best month for snow in New England in over a year. We had that blizzard which was cool and there have been consistent smaller storms just about every week.

Ski Touring on Magic Mountain

 
Ski Touring Magic Mountain

Thanks to the recent boom in backcountry skiing, many resorts have come to their senses and created uphill traffic policies. As skiing becomes more expensive, the thought of getting away from the crowds at resorts and putting in some good old fashioned work to get to the top of the mountain is an appealing idea for more and more people, including me. Last weekend it was time again to pick a destination and get after it, free of charge.

It seems every year I extend my season and ride more, both on dirt and the road. Now that fall is here it's time to get creative with the limited amount of daylight I have to work with. In the past two weeks I've got out on two epic mountain bike rides thanks to the ever growing connections of being a member of team NEMBA.

The Pinnacle Race Recap 2012 - EFTA #3

 

So there's nothing quite like mountain bicycling racing to bring me back to reality on how out of shape I am. This was my third year in a row at The Pinnacle. Year one, I was just happy to be there, back on my new bike. Last year I had fun (?) at least it sounds that way if you read the recap. This year was not fun...but that's ok! Not sure how I did it, but I think I peaked in April - oops. Felt pretty strong at Single-speed-apalooza and thought that might set me up for future "good" races - nope.
