Sizzling Gravel Grinder.

Great turnout today for our first Gravel Grinder of the season. Thank you to everyone who came out and suffered along with me on the Riverside - Weston Gravel Grinder. This route is coming together nicely and by fall we should have a nice route with plenty of gravel fun.

Here are some pictures of today's ride. More to come once I recuperate and have another beer...
