This is a gravel grinder (may turn out to be more snow than gravel) out of Paola, Kansas on January 17th. The ride is part of the Guru’s Gravel Grinders series, a bunch of rides taking place around the Kansas City area, each led by a local cyclist who knows the back roads well. This ride is my contribution.
Here’s the route:
This is an area that I ride fairly often, and I really love the ruggedness of the land. The combination of the hills and trail are pretty killer, I think. Plus the history associated with the area is really cool, too.
Here are some ride reports and pictures from previous rides along this route:
So, if you happen to live within driving distance of this ride, you’re welcome to attend. It’s free, but there’s no support, so bring plenty of food & drink. Knobby tires highly recommended!
