Over the last month or so I have been doing a lot of riding in preparation for some early season races. The first being Ragnarok, a 100 mile gravel road race in Red Wing. Because of an unusually warm spring, I've been able to get some long rides in early. In March I logged over 1,000 miles between commuting and some nice weekend rides. Last Sunday we rode to Red Wing and back racking up 160 miles and 9+ hours on the bike.
After last weekends ride I feel really good about my conditioning for Ragnarok. This weekend I decided not to do any long rides and started getting my bike set up for the race; tweaking my bag set up where I will store food, water, spare tubes, and tools. I will post a race report next weekend.
