Another Overnight

After the last overnight at Stub Stewart in the snow, I booked another cabin for this past weekend.  I wanted to get in one more trip before the next few months focus more on training rides and races. I convinced Michelle, Dean, Tom & Cassie, and Shawn to join me for this one.  Being winter…
