The 2016 Lake Dabinawa Grinder Recap
Jeff leads the way out on the levee for our ride up to Lake Dabinawa Grinder. A little chilly and windy at the start but overall a beautiful day to be riding gravel.
Thank you to everyone who came out today. Very strong turnout and we appreciate it. Course and conditions were very nice. I especially liked the easy pace the first 4 miles up on the levee.
Jeff Arnaud is the Man. He designed the perfect course - first part was a lot of climbing and into a headwind with the return trip everyone got to enjoy a nice tailwind and plenty of fast rolling gravel downhills. Thanks again for hosting another fun and exciting Lake Dabinawa Grinder Jeff!
Bob Billings was out and recorded some good video of our ride.
Several riders got flats today including yourstruely and Michael Ruder of Power Team Coaching above.
Flats were not the only problem today. Some riders like my good friend Gerard was just lucky to be riding after his bike fell off his rack. Those Giants sure are tough.
Nice to see so many smiling faces out today especially from our Women's Free State Racing team.
