One thing that I specifically do in the spring to fend off burn out is to join in more group rides! I find group rides to be the easiest way to add on the miles - for some odd reason the suffering is just a little more tolerable with others + who doesn't love a coffee/donut stop in the middle of a 5 hour ride?

That's me, and my fitness clone Jeff Shupe
It's gravel season! Spring has always been my favorite time of year and the local gravel scene is only helping solidify that. Dickie Scramble and Miesville56 where the two local gravel races I chose this year mostly because I love the festive post race small town bar atmosphere. I loved sharing both of these ride experiences with some people I had just met. That's the beauty of gravel. Eventually you end up riding with a smallish group of people with similar fitness sharing the workload and motivating each other to keep pushing. This camaraderie is incredible and it's always the highlight of my ride. Plus, there are usually cows some place near the gravel....and I freaking love cows, especially this little ginger cow. So cute!
