Just a quick post tonight....Rick and Scott met Steve at his house to start the ride. I could tell upon waking up that I was not going to be 100%. I met them on the road and we meandered west of town. We ended up in Panora for lunch at mile 55. I had few times that I had wanted to quit prior to this point, but kept expecting it to get better.
It never did and at mile 65 I sent the boys ahead without me as I was holding them up too much.
The picture above is after I caught them lounging under a tree in Adel. Steve and I had to teach Rick and Scott how to get the most miles of gravel in during these types of rides. :)
Finished the ride with near 8hrs ride time, but over 10hrs with stops.
