Brandon, who is a friend of mine, and I knocked out a 34+ mile ride last night after work.  31 of these miles were on gravel.  These are file photos because although I brought the camera along, I forgot it was even in my pocket until I sat in the car to go home and it poked me in the pocket.  That tells me that I had a great time with good company and it was fun to have company, as almost all of my riding is alone.

The pictures of the roads are the same roads we were on yesterday.

File photo of the Gitchigumi Gear Mashers from this years MS150.  It was Brandon on the right and myself on the left that rode yesterday. 

I rode the mountain bike and it was Brandon's first ride on his new 29er, and his first time riding gravel.  It would have been nice to get a photo of that, but I was too interested in the riding to be remembering a camera.  He has been a roadie in the past, but I think he enjoyed the gravel last night.    

Some of the roads yesterday were freshly graded, but still rode very well with the wide mountain tires.  As I said before, these are file photos today.  I loaded them up because I like photos in a blog.  I enjoy checking out photos on other blogs, so I try to put them on this one.  Oh, and one last thing...It was a Gooooood time ! !


  1. Good to share a ride with a friend.

  2. Riding gravel roads can be a blast. I have a few roads I like to take my mountain bike on during the winter months.

  3. I'm guessing you had a good time? :)
