The DIrty South 100K

Someone is hosting a ride in the beautiful Shawnee National Forest in a couple of weeks.  It looks pretty good, I think I’ll ride.

    That is a great ride poster! I hope you do it – they look like good people.

    Just curious, which bike are you taking to a ride like this? I tried to ride my road bike on gravel once, it didn’t work so well. Doing 30 or 40 miles on pavement using a mountain bike with knobby tires, doable I guess.

      I’ve recently put 30c Cyclocross tires on my Nashbar Touring bike. I’ve ridden gravel for extended periods of time on 25c tires wihtout too much problem but these tires have some tread and more volume. They worked real well on the rail trail last night.

    WTF?!?!?! I’ve seen these rides in other places and thought they sounded like fun. I’d really like to see the course. I wonder…

    I’m pre-riding the course on Sunday I think if you want to go.

    better drive the course. gravel roads may be for shit and the graders have been out.
