Today I wanted to share the winter training I do to prepare myself for a spring launch into the long ride summer season. Living in Truckee near Lake Tahoe at 5,000 plus feet above sea level, the winter is not condusive for outdoor winter training. Frequent snow and below freezing temperatures keeps me training inside.
So I make the most it. I have set up the ultimate Porsche cycling hibernation camp possible. My stationary bike is surrounded by a plethora of Porsche paraphernalia including a 2001 triple black 986 Boxster, a 2006 Carmona Red 955 Cayenne S, an all original 1996 Bike S, a modified 1998 Bike S, an all black 2004 Bike X and Porsche flags, posters and parts. I even have a portable heater and a place for my computer to update this blog while I ride.
With a 2017 goal of riding a 2004 Porsche Bike X for the entire five mountain pass, 129 mile Death Ride in July, I'll need all the training I can get!
