Adventure Buddies

The three members of team S.N.R.F. were bunch ride friends who decided to branch out and try something new.  

We've learned a lot about bike-packing, and each other during the months of training leading up to the TA.   

Both Nerena and Renée get quite Hangry (hunger-angry) so Scott has learned the art of racing ahead to find the next shady place for a meal break.

Renee

Renee

Full suss but heavy

Definitely the slowest member of the team overall, but any QOM I have are for downhills.  

Nerena

Nerena

Hard tail

Nerena has pace up hills, and takes a sensible approach on the downs

Scott

Scott

Single speed no suss

Scott is riding a single speed to try and give himself a challenge.  For most people the TA2020 would be enough, but he's like that.

So many people to thank...
