I'm slated to ride the Idaho Hot Springs Loop in July with my brother John and my oldest son Geoff. Part of my preparation will be to load my bike up and ride it to work. The reason for this is to reduce the amount of time my training takes me away from Kathy. I can leave the house and spend a couple of hours on my commute so that works out well. She travels a lot for work and on the days she's gone I can load up and do a s24o with some extra mileage. So I did the Strava thing and I've been exploring and mapping out some routes to work. Anything involving Argonne Hill seems to work really well.
I like this route the best because it has some gravels roads and more elevation gain.
