We turned this corner to a gravel climb filled with wild flowers. It smelled amazing!!

Yesterday was the 1st of hopefully more, Explorer Rides. My buddy Chad has made kind of a scavenger hunt on bikes where he wants you to ride roads you normally don’t ride on.
The day started out kinda cloudy and even a little bit of rain. But the ride kept getting better and better. Climbing, gravel, flowers, cool shit, and WIND.
At 1st I was wishing I had my road bike, until we hit this loose gravel climb and I was spinning out on my cross bike with Muddz tires!
I had done about 50% of this route before, not all at once, and the other 50 was AMAZ-BALLZ. 3k of climbing, which for this part of Illinois is unheard of. WIND is always there, some times at 20mph, but you get that tail wind on a gravel sections, GAME ON WAYNE!
Probably the single best day on the bike I’ve had in a very long time.
