April 27, 2019 was a cold, wet day in Burke, Vermont, for the 7th annual Rasputitsa Spring Classic. On a day that started with rain and transitioned into snow accompanied by a drop in temperature (around 35 degrees, I’m told), most cyclists would opt to stay in and keep warm, storing the bike for use in more temperate conditions. But the Raputitsa Spring Classic is not about temperate conditions. In fact, these may be the least agreeable conditions for riding possible.
Rain, mud, snow, hills, cold, that’s what you can expect at Rasputitsa, and here are some of the women who rocked it!
