I rode the cross bike on a mostly gravel 25 mile ride. Wind, did someone say wind?...no but I did. Lots of wind on this one, and I knew before I left the house what I was in for.
The roads were a little wet, but not bad. I think there were white caps on some of the puddles though.
I saw three cars in 25 miles and that number could increase, as hunting season is here. I did see a couple wheelers also. I had a hard time seeing them, as they were in full camo. Less traffic is just one of the benefits of riding the gravel.
I now know that I could be in better shape. Wind is a good judge of that.
Riding the gravel equals a Goooood Time ! ! !
