COVID-19 Wk 65: Prepping

My big event for 2021 is just under a week away. I’m riding the Skull 120 next week and as good or bad as my training has gone there isn’t much more I can do now in the case of fitness. All I can do now is focus on prepping and making sure my bike…

COVID-19 Wk 64: Seventy Percent
