Gravel Grinders

It is winter time and that means one thing besides freezing your butt off here in the Midwest. Guru's Gravel Grinder series. Time to hit the lesser traveled roads and put in some serious base miles for 2010. Many of those roads will be gravel hence the name Gravel Grinders. The first three dates are set. We are also working on a gravel road race for February so stay tuned. As we progress through the winter the rides will become longer. Come join in the fun.

Here is our new blog: Gravel Grinders

GGG Dates:

#1 12/20/09 - Riverside, MO
#2 12/26/09 - Smithville, MO
#3 01/02/10 - Baldwin City, KS

Here is the info on GGG #1:

What: Guru Gravel Grinder #1
When: Sunday, December 20, 2009 - 10:00 am start time
Where: Start at E.H. Young Riverfront Park, Riverside MO
Who: Any and all are welcome
Why: Because there is way too much pavement in the world

Route: A mix of gravel, levee and back country roads. Mostly road, but plenty of gravel to keep us sane. Some hills will be climbed. You will experience some discomfort depending on pace. We will try and stay off any high traffic roads. Any road bike with a good sturdy set of wheels can be used. Cross bike preferred, but not required. Distance from E. H. Young is about 38 miles.

This is a Show-N-Go ride, please bring food/water and anything you require.
