Last weekend was the 1st “training ride” for the Gravel Metric. It was about 27 miles. We rolled outta NCC as a group, the group broke based on abilities I tried to hammer with the front guys and got dropped Ended up riding with a new friend, a woman from my high school of all places killing it on an All City.
Pretty good ride. Talked to the owner for a bit on the ride too.
He wanted me to let everyone know this will be the HARDEST Gravel Metric EVER. Course will not be marked out, tons of climbing, wind, and crazy ass Illinois weather.
