Effective Training

I think I've found the most effective way to train...Start out by planning an overly ambitious ride that involves some unverified trails. Throw in some nasty hike-a-bikes through briars and deadfall when said trails do not exist. Add a fierce headwind and ensure that the ride is a huge loop with no bailouts back to the car. For extra motivation, sprinkle in the threat of losing daylight and near frozen extremities.

I think I'll have an opportunity to test this new training regime tomorrow, as it is supposed to rain a bunch tonight and the temperature is supposed to drop into the low 40's. At least I have a training buddy as its always better to suffer together!
