Winter of 2014...I remember that Thursday

Thank you to the folks that heated up their rollers last night because we were in fact issued a few raindrops from our Celtic Goddess. Since there is precipitation in the air, lets pretend for a minuet that we are in the dead of winter and follow the training advise of  Federico Bahamontes (six time TdF KOM winner) and take some REST. Santa Cruz pedal pushers are known for over training, just ask Daryl Price who made a career of crushing folks who pedaled twice as much as he did. Rest is an underrated component to cycling and I often find myself off the bike due to work commitments for weeks on end and within a couple of rides you settle right back where you were with fresh legs and more important a fresh mind.
