Signs of sproing
Two rides last weekend. 64miles worth of mock commuting Saturday and 104 miles of South Van Buren county exploration.
It takes me two hours to get to work by bike via the 90% gravel low traffic route.
Henry Co pave roads are flat, but their gravels are not.
I like fenders.
Stans Crows don't do ice well, but they roll right along on everything else.
Topofusion is cool.
Swapping in tubes and playing in Stans in below ferezing weather on the side of a gravel road at night... yea, that still sucks.
You can get 20,000 feet of elevation change in 160miles in SE IA.
Riding in the ditch isn't all that bad.
I found the boonies, they're just down the road.
