It is a busy time of year and so far nobody has volunteered to lead this week’s ride. I could squeeze in a short one (~2.5 hours) if people are interested. If someone is looking for a longer ride, then you welcome to lead.
Is there anyone interested in a traditional “gravel” ride?
If it is gravel, I would try gravel, but I’m anticipating that it could be quite icy. If icy, then I would revert to pavement.
If there is no interest in traditional gravel, then I will include some trails which would mean fatter tires would be recommended.
What are you sayin’?December 22, 2017 at 8:01 pm #40892
Well, I’m interesting in riding. Didn’t get out Monday. Kevin was away Thursday. 2-2.5 hrs is fine.
If I there wasn’t something going on, I would have ridden to Sunnycrest Bakery or something (hint, hint). Yes, they have great cinnamon buns and the closing up for January starting 3pm Sat.
I suspect given the snow, it would actually be safer on the gravel away from traffic, but I defer to the guys who have been doing this for years.

I will ride. See you in the morningDecember 22, 2017 at 8:58 pm #40894
I’m down for either. Just need to know which bike I should bring.

Not that I really need a cinnamon bun the size of my head, but once you’ve had one it is hard to say no…
This is roughly 50/50 gravel/paved. It is certainly intended for CX bikes. There is a good chance I will be on my gravel bike, but if my legs seems fresh in the morning I may ride the tank make sure I earn that delicious nutrition. 🙂December 23, 2017 at 7:27 am #40896
We did get some freezing drizzle last night. Treated surfaces seem okay. Untreated surfaces are pretty icy. If others are up for giving it a try, so am I. Apple Grove is right after the start and should give a good idea of how things look. If I don’t like what I see there I will turn around and head for home.
Please let me know what you are thinking?December 23, 2017 at 7:28 am #40897
Let’s Ride. Kevin and I rode in white out conditions two weeks ago.
If things get too bad, we just take a shorter route to the bakery 🙂
