For anyone interested in riding their bikes at the expense of friends, family, and sanity, here’s a lineup of local fun stuff for the next few months.
The Spring brevets are pretty typical southwestern PA terrain: daunting to those from flatter parts of the world, but nothing abnormal to those who’ve ridden around here.
The AMCUP series is a challenge series (AKA “just plain mean”), with lots of time spent climbing ridges in the Laurel Highlands.
The training rides are CTC-focused, and are more intended to shake out any equipment or ergonomic problems beforehand than to be one’s primary fitness training. I’ll likely add a short night ride to the mix as well, so people will have an opportunity to test out lighting systems and whatnot on some nice rural roads.
