Brovet

For some reason, a group of us decided to try out this ride. A “brovet” if you will. Doing 120 miles is easy, doing over 350 in one swoop is a little more difficult. Doing it in the wake of a Hurricane, over the Appalachian mountains is, as we found, even more difficult. I unfortunately didn’t plan on Sandy and showed up to Pittsburgh with arm warmers, leg warmers, shoe covers and wind-proof gloves. Bad times! But it doesn’t have to be fun to be fun, right?

More on this project to come, but for now, #GoYonder and check out some select shots in the Gallery.

    Holy heck Prolly, 350 miles in one go is bad enough. . . but with Sandy in the mix, fahgettaboudit.

      The story, at this point, has to remain vague but we didn’t do the whole 350…

    I like those helmet reflectors in the final photo.  Is that a reflective sticker set or is that an actual helmet?
