It is that time of year.  Getting dark early. So time to train in the dark.  Get some mid week work in or blow up like a balloon this holiday season!

We leave from the Mound parking lot, the Weldon Spring superfund site just SW of Francis Howell HS on 94 in St. Charles county at 6 PM on Tuesday nights.  A gravel, CX or hardtail MTB with fast rolling tires is recommended, and a headlight of 300 or more lumens.  We roll the Hamburg to the Katy past Defiance and Matson Hill and turn off on Terry for paved rolling climbs, returning to Defiance and back to the Mound. It usually takes 1:45.  We stop about 6 times to make sure everyone is caught up.

This is a great training ride because it has the constant work of riding the Katy mixed with harder climbing efforts on Terry/Duke.  Then we spin it out again.  5 weeks of this and you will see a difference.  Hope you can join us!

That Wednesday night ride from the Mound through Bush wildlife is a blast!  I highly recommend it.
