Long Rides Through the (Polar) Vortex

Last Friday’s KMsForICM ride was considerably more difficult than the previous week’s. Still 200km but with the added bonus of 9167ft (2174m) of elevation gain. Not terrible, but considering that most of that climbing was from roughly mile 41 to mile 101 it meant that my ride time went from “killing it” early on to “please kill me” by the 65% mark. 939 more words
