How To Ride Like A Pro: Russell Finsterwald

Russell Finsterwald

Russell is the U.S. Marathon champion, 2019 Epic Rides overall series winner and a six-time U.S. national champion.

As winter approaches, finding the motivation to ride outside doesn’t come quite as easily as in the summer months. For those wanting to hold onto their fitness throughout the winter, this means finding creative ways to increase their motivation. Diversifying your physical activity is one of the best ways to rekindle that motivation.

This can come in the form of a trail run, Nordic skiing, hiking or riding indoors. Winter is also a good time to dip your toes into a new sport. Have you found yourself wondering what it’s like to play pickleball? Find an indoor court near you and give it a try! As long as you’re staying active several hours a week, that same level of fitness you had in the summer will come back to you much easier in the spring.
