For those of you that don’t know, we put on a gravel ride in late September.  Well, we did last year, and we are doing it again this year, September 25th, and you can get all the details HERE.  You should sign up!

We are changing the start location this year to be right here at our shop, so we had to figure out how to get to the route, so Cody and I went out to ride the first half on Sunday morning.

It was a nice day for it, sunny and warm, and mild (if any) wind.  We both rode MASI cyclocross bikes, Cody on her Speciale CX and Steve on his Speciale CXSS.

The roads were fairly bumpy and really dusty.  We did not see many cars, which is always a plus as they kick up so much dust, but we were still well coated.  An inexpensive sunblock option.

On the way into town we stopped at the Taqueria truck for veggie burritos, a great ride!
