This year Blue Ridge Adventures moved the Pisgah MTB Stage race to April, and I want to finish the P111K. So, I had to start training in January.
I went and talked to Kevin at Liberty Bikes about my clothing selection/options and I wound up purchasing the Gore Tex Oxygen Jacket.
The next time I got in the bike, the temp in the parking lot was 25 degrees. I was slightly chilly starting out, but once I warmed up, I was comfortable for the entire 1.5 hr ride. This piece of clothing will change my winter riding and I'm looking forward to more cold weather rides.

I rode outside today for the first time since my Thanksgiving trip. I have a long ways to go, but I'm going to take it slow and enjoy the ride.
I'm glad to be back on the bike and am looking forward to some big adventures this year. Of course I can't share some of them before I go, because I always jinx myself and it ends up falling apart.
I am planning on: Pisgah MTB Stage Race, P111k, Fletcher Flyer and ORAMM. Other than that, I'm looking forward to some more bikepacking. After it warms up!
