Bike Camp

I’m going to Bike Camp with some other GOBs (Girls on Bikes). It’s a 3 day program in Northampton MA for improving the riding skills of intermediate cyclists. You ride for 3 or 4 hours in the morning, have lunch, spend the afternoon doing other things (shopping), regroup for dinner and then a classroom lecture on certain skills. Then you fall sound asleep in your hotel bed. If nothing else, you spend 3 days riding in a really beautiful part of Massachusetts with some really nice people, make a few new friends perhaps, eat some good food, and pick up a few pointers. Or, you spend 3 days learning to suck it up as you climb mountains and find your inner beast to be released when you return home with quads of steel.
