Tapering off time

According to Coach Mike we are now in the tapering off section of our training. We were supposed to do 75% of our total mileage 3 weeks before the event. We accomplished that last Friday, one day ahead of schedule. This week we are doing maintenance rides, with one 40+ ride this weekend. Then a week from this Friday the bikes go on a truck for their trip to Death Valley.
Rode a 10 mile out and back north on the White Pine Trail on Monday and a 17 mile out and back south on the WPT today.

We're back - I know what you've got to look forward too now, and if Death Valley is half the experience that Asheville was, you're in for the time of your life. Ride on! I hope I can see you guys before you leave...
