This time of year our Weekend Rolls are typically race focused. Telling tales of victories and (more often than not) defeats on the bike. However with a rare lull in the local race calendar I decided to pass on the Lime Rock Cycling Grand Prix (where Colin Tanner scored a very nice fourth place finish in dreadful weather conditions) and head East for a weekend at the beach. Even if it was far too cold to actually go to the beach.
Despite our love for the Hampton's singletrack we left our cross bikes behind with the intent of getting in some steady miles on the road. Of course as we set about exploring some new roads our wander inevitably led us back to the dirt, and then onto some singletrack. Skinny tires or not the #healthwarriorshredfast was back on.
