I’ve received a couple of questions about tapering before our Bike Out Hunger – Texas 6-day ride. Yes, it is good to taper but I’m late on getting this posted so, starting last Monday, please begin your taper…
If you didn’t, any ride today (Friday 4/19) or tomorrow (Saturday 4/20) should be light pace, moderate cadence and mostly in the lower chain ring.
I’ve posted a couple of articles that explain the taper concept if you are interested in reading them.

Velo News¬†talks about a Gran Fondo, which loosely translated from Italian is Big Ride…this coming week qualifies for that part
