Putting in Miles

The first day of Wheels North is about 120 days away (July 4), so it's time for our riders to think about getting in some miles. The first few days of the ride will be scenic, but tough, and we'll need strength in our legs to climb the mountains.

One of our riders, Willie Myers, took a big step yesterday with his first 100-mile ride. (That's Willie in the photo, about halfway through the ride.) In two weeks, Willie and fellow WN rider Eric Norris will be upping that mileage to 180 (or 300 kilometers). Later in the spring, we'll be doing at least one multi-day ride with days of 100 miles or more.

All of this to help make that that, like Vic and Ray, we reach Seattle under our own power.
