The Lone Star Report

 Lone Star Lake.  The destination for today's little Gravel Grinder.  Nice views out by the lake today....
Lawrence is a hotbed for gravel grinding and it showed today with one of our largest ride ever.  Approximately 45 riders on today ride.
Jeff Arnaud hosted today's ride.  You know the ride is going to be fun and hard when Jeff's leading the way.  The wind on today's ride made it especially hard at times. 

It is always interesting who will show up on are rides.   We have had National Champions on our ride and now we can say we had SpaghettiOs on our little gravel grinders.

The bikes that show up on these gravel grinders are always interesting.  Craig shows off his vintage Fuji fixed gear with custom food bag.

After a years hiatus, the Lone Star Gravel Grinder returns to Jayhawk country and the city of Lawrence, Kansas.  As we have found out, there are some mighty fine gravel roads to explore South of Lawrence.

Our first year we had a fun snowy gravel ride.

Two years ago the ride was held in early Spring and was much warmer and had some less than ideal conditions.

This year we are holding the ride in November so expect great riding conditions with cold morning temperatures that will quickly warm up.
