    breaking in the fjear fjersey
    I just got my spiffy new jersey in and it wants to go for a ride.

    Something like this for a Sjunday spin? Or maybe there's another suggestion?

    As long as you do three laps you'll do the jersey justice.

    one lap is ~30 mles and 7,200 ft elevation, I'll agree that's not exactly a death march, two laps would qualify I think, especially at 49yrs and riding rigid SS.

    My first choice is actually to start from the stables instead and do Maxwell/Black/Buckhorn to Squirrel and then finish with Black and Avery from Buckhorn on the way back. That's ~40 miles and 10,000+ elevation. But it seems only people named Eric can get anyone to voluntarily ride a route like that... I'm hopeful though ;)
