Often described as one of the toughest bike races in the lower 48 states, the Arrowhead 135 challenges even the most prepared riders. This is a journal by a non-athlete's participation in an event where starting is often just as much a challenge as finishing.

Training Video from Colorado
March 2, 2011
Eric created this video from some footage we shot with his camera while riding in Colorado before the Arrowhead:

You can see that we were running pretty light since we were only out for a few hours at a time. Most of the footage was shot on snow-packed gravel roads, where we could easily ride and operate the camera (we didn't have bike mounts for the cameras), but there are a couple tripod shots from the trails, too.

[Side note: I managed to get the Facebook- based comments working again. This was part of the test setup for this blog...]
