A total of seven bikes showed up this morning despite the cold weather start to the day. It was a nice ride. A little pavement, bit of gravel, and a touch of dirt. I think everyone would agree that the route needed more dirt but there just isn't much to be had unfortunately, at least nearby. We had multiple creek crossings and a nice lunch at the Mighty Mo (formerly Flyers) in Atchison. It warmed up nicely later in the day and I think that the main complaint from the group seemed to be the dusty nature of our gravel sections. The day ended after a nice curvy Highway 5 run and the group split up. I'd like to thank all of the guys that came out. I hope y'all had as much fun riding as I did putting the whole thing together. In the coming days we will have some photos up from the ride. I need my brother to get them off of his go pro for me first though.
There was mud...not much though
Thanks Chris for contributing the photos!
