I don't have time for a full write-up, so I'll just share a few photos I snapped with my LX7 along the way. You can find our route on Strava. Just watch out for the aggressive country dogs and even more aggressive redneck owners out there. Something about wrapping a bicycle around one of our heads...
Joe Range Road, beginning stair-steppy 1200ft climb.
Multiple Class 4 town roads on the route
Top of the Foundry Rd climb (tough 1000ft) just after popping out briefly on paved Strafford Rd.
Dave, Keith and Paul.
Keith cresting class 4 Turnpike Rd. Just below this was several hundred vertical feet of
soft black peanut butter loam to ride. Still smiling after pushing a monster gear all day.
Beginning descent from top of Turnpike Rd.
HJ and Dave. Don't remember which summit Paul snapped this one on.
