Racing season is here – Road, MTB, GFondo

Congrats to Brian Ecker and all the over 130 other riders who did the Ephrate Grand Fondo yesterday, EPIC conditions from the facebook posts for everyone who rode yesterday.  Same to all that raced the Soaring Eagle mountain bike race.  Great road racing was also on display yesterday in Sequim and Saturday at Mason lake with hundreds or racers testing their winter training vs. the competition.  

It is all about staying warm on these Spring rides because you are going to get wet and with the wind chill it feels twice as cold.  This is where you can take some lessons from Cyclocross: use Embocation, wool socks, booties and warm caps under your helmet to keep the core temp high and muscles functioning despite the cold.  Stop in the West Seattle store to try on some of these heat seeking accessories.
