Another Winter Cycling Option...Read more.

So I'm sure when the weather starts to get consistently colder, most will end up indoors(except maybe for the year round BCC'ers).  One knows that getting on a trainer requires lots of discipline, and can often be boring, hence we have been going to Watts Up Cycling in the winter months, to ride with other BCC'ers on the…

It was a great way to spend a Saturday.  Being a…

13 of us braved the conditions…
