I was pretty surprised at how awesome the riding was when we got to Nevada. Big shoulders, nice pavements, lots of variety - flat, rolling, long climbs - we'd definitely come back there before going back to Palm Springs or Tucson for training, for sure. Jason met up with some Team Every Man Jack buds for a couple of rides as well, which makes it extra fun for him. I opted out of one of their routes: 90 miles including a 20 mile climb to the top of Mt. Charleston. I was out for the following reasons: Tom said it would take them 6+ hours, 20 mile climb, snow at the top. I'm not doing an Ironman this year so I just wanted to do fun rides, and figured that one would involve some tears for sure!
