Today we did lots of gravel road riding! It seemed like every turn we would start out cruising down a nice country road then it would just switch to a gravel grinder with soft peanut butter like surface! That really sucks on a road bike! Darrin ended up having enough of it and had a break down on the road!
How fitting considering the name of the trail!
Either way we trashed the bikes today!
Finally we hit some good roads and I was able to settle in and stop suffering on all of the gravel and steep low cadence hills. Today we ended up with almost 7000 ft of climbing! With all that climbing and another good day on the bike I had to talk Darrin out of trying out another hobby!
Sounds like I have him convinced to try it one more day before making the decision! Therefore the Hillbilly Tour Stage 3 is a go!!
