Sprints in December?

No thanks, I'll stick to the single speed night MTB rides at Lake Chabot, and climbing everything on the road bike in the big ring.

Happy birthday BTW.

I thought I'd get an early start on the sprinting. I've never tried sprint workouts this early before and I thought it couldn't hurt.

We get a pretty good group of hammerheads out at the Polo field for these workouts and that really helps.
