Nice Day For A Bike Race!

It ended up being a gorgeous day for Newton’s Revenge bike race! Being an avid biker myself, I would love to try this out sometime in the future. Inclines are a true challenge of physical endurance. Many individuals afar use this mountain to prepare them for even greater feats. It was a beautiful day up here for the race, albeit the weather here typically allows even the most athletic individuals to test both physical and mental strength. Back in Michigan, I would run whether the temperature was 95 degrees or 10 below, heavy snow, or even one case when the siren could be heard. Being on a mountain, you are far more exposed to these conditions. This is why Mount Washington has so much to offer for all groups. Best of all, it offers bragging rights. With Seek the Peak coming up July 18th and 19th, the excitement up here has just begun!
