Marian Cycling Spring Break Training '14

During the first part of Spring Break, the Marian crew headed down to Townsend, TN for some riding and team bonding. This years' camp was a great success with many miles logged, calories consumed, and great stories to boot.

Here is a varied collection of shots from throughout the camp:

Ride: Gatlinburg/Newfound Gap

Ride: Foothills Parkway/Dragons Tail/Happy Valley

Made it to the top of Happy Valley! One of the steepest climbs in the area.

We had some killer sunsets

Ride: Cades Cove

This was the sunset we received on our final evening in Townsend, TN

No camp would be complete without a campfire and s'mores

Look for some photos from Boone, NC and the Bissell-ABG-Giant team camp coming soon.
