One of my favorite big rides on the mountain bike - mix of pavement, singletrack, dirt roads...and a s@it ton of climbing!
Heather, how do you carry enough water/fuel for a long loop training ride like this?
Hey Ed - there is almost always a gas station or something on the big routes like this. On this ride, right around hour 2, I hit up some water at a station just before turning up Twin Spruce. Other than that, my pockets are full of bars and bananas :)
Ah yes, I forget there are more people and services there! You would have to plan carefully for a 50-mile loop in the mountains of MT to refuel. See you again at Missoula XC! Good luck this year. Thanks for joining Strava and giving us social media/MTB geeks one more way to follow you.
