Reader Dave Schweikert who just so happens to also be a quality management engineer at SRAM is out on his bike riding across the USA (and from one SRAM office to the next) as part of a personal fundraising project for World Bicycle Relief that he is calling Tour de SRAM USA 2017. He’s recently just pedaled east out of Chicago after starting in SoCal, but sent in this picture back on his first mountain training ride for the trip “during a sunrise ride along the Blue Ridge Parkway north of Roanoke, Virginia I stopped to enjoy the beautiful views during a 10+ mile climb. Riding conditions were perfect- low traffic, no trucks, and smooth, sweeping turns on the descent. The bike is my Wilier Gran Turismo equipped with SRAM Red eTap and Zipp 404 wheels.”

We always love seeing photos from where you are riding and are happy to share them with our readers around the world here on the Pic Of The Day. Send in your pics with a brief description here.
