We had over 40 riders show up for the first Gravel Metric training ride, and this Saturday, April 13th at 8am, we’ll be rolling out for training ride number two. This ride will be 41.3 miles of gravely goodness heading northwest from North Central Cyclery and feature soft gravel, rutted roads, and DeKalb’s version of a few hills.
Cue sheets with readable font size will be provided, but we won’t provide a map of the overall ride since we’re trying to get you ready for the main event. The route is available here if you want to take a look ahead of time. You can also download the GPX for your GPS right HRR. These are country gravel roads, so unfortunately not all of the intersections have road signs. You will need to keep close attention to the mileage, and we’ll do our best to provide enough landmark information on the cue sheet to help with navigation.
The route through the neighborhoods is a little tricky, so we’ll provide a map of the route through town back to the shop.
There is no support on this ride. Bring your flat kit, and come prepared with enough hydration and nutrition to complete the full distance.
Sign a waiver and be ready to ride at 8am.
See you Saturday.
