Big Winter

Winter has not been too cold, but it has been good to me. I went to Vermont to ski just after the New Year and got a bit more skiing time in before the spring semester started back up.

Warm weather last week peaked around seventy degrees provided two fine afternoons of cycling. It was windy, but arm warmers were unnecessary. My legs felt good from my skiing cross-training, but my fitness is understandably low. Serves me right for taking nearly two months off.

Twin Six, a cycling apparel company from Minneapolis, donated a full kit for the trip this summer. Nothing beats a new pair of bib shorts and a pretty new jersey with the high quality of Twin Six. Those folks are really awesome!

I am hoping for a good blizzard to come through, but also pulling for some spring weather again. It is about time to start working towards my 1,000 mile goal before the BIKEtheUSforMS Northern Tier begins on Memorial Day.

Plans for the upcoming weeks:

Get some riding in

Get a big push for fundraising going

Buy a new cassette

Spread awareness for Multiple Sclerosis

About jasonbikestheusforms

I am a college student from Eldersburg, MD. I am biking from Maine to Seattle, WA to raise money and awareness for Multiple Sclerosis. The goal is to help end MS for all those affected. Who knew a bicycle could be such a good tool for this cause? This blog will serve as a log of the adventures of my training and my actual journey next summer.
