Riverside - Waldron Gravel Grinder

Ride Update - A very cold morning greeted our fellow gravel grinders this morning. Temps in the teens was a bit chilly, but everyone's adventurous spirit (that and some nice lobster gloves and embrocation lotion) kept everyone warm enough enjoy a great ride.

Kevin Nierman sends us his Riverside-Waldron Gravel Grinder photo album.

Pictures from today's ride from the Guru (including a very cold recon on Thursday night):

Riverside Waldron Gravel Grinder

Our next gravel grinder is a perfect opportunity for newbies with a shorter and flat route along the old Mighty Mo. We begin at E. H. Young Riverfront Park and proceed first to the Missouri Riverfront Trail. Next up is a trip through scenic English Landing Park and quick pass through the farm lands along the Might MO via Rush Creek Rd. We jump on the old River Road for our leg to the small city of Waldron. We take a trip around old Waldron via Moores Feny Road and the levee. Then it is back to Riverside to complete our journey.

  1. Brett and I are contemplating leaving from midtown (depending on how windy it is) and ride to eh young if anyone is interested.
