It was hard to resist a 60 degree (15 degrees Celsius) evening on Feb 1st., an unusually warm weather breaking many records across the east coast. However, I was more interested in continuing my training regimen for the Kokopelli trail ride.
Less than 30 minutes from the time I got home from work and I was ready to hit the trails. Nite-Riding to the park on the road (about 20 minutes). It’s super important to be visible and to see where you go. Spinner 3 Pro has an enormous carrying capacity which helps not just to hold a 3L bladder, spare tubes, hand pump, food etc., but also 2 headlight batteries and extra clothing, like rain jacket (just in case). Further, the Spinner 3 Pro has built in back reflectors which help with rider visibility at night.
I ended up riding for 2 hours with my friend Yohan (an excellent rider) across a diverse terrain: fire roads, single-tracks, creak crossing and much more.
On the way back home I stopped by my very good friend Eric M for a cup of green tea and small talk before continuing home.
More on Eric, Yohan, Evan and training in the next posts.
Till next time…
My name is Gili Torovezky. I was born and raised in Haifa, Israel, and I’ve lived in NJ, US, for the past 11 years.
A father (to adorable twin girls), a husband (to a lovely wife and care giving woman), a friend (hope good to many), a sibling (to two fine sisters), a cousin (to many), an uncle (to two long distance nieces) and above all, focus on the important things in life: modesty, perspective, success, happiness, values.
My passion is the outdoor or anything that takes my heart to go above 120 BPM.
