Yesterday five of us headed out of West Des Moines for a 70 mile gravel ride. In attendance were Charles, Courtney, Rob, Scott and myself. 30MPH sustained winds along with 50-60MPH gusts made for an interesting day, especially when combined with the steep, punchy hills. It was a long one with frequent stops, and we rolled back into town 8 hours later under cover of darkness. Thanks to Courtney and his wife for hosting and feeding us, dinner was delicious. Thanks to Charles for coming up with this crazy idea. Thanks to all for showing up and making for a great start to the new year.
When Charles gets his pics uploaded I'll link to those as well.
