First thing first, refresh your brain with the overview of the series.
Cool, now here is the first months route.
I wanted to start this series off with roads that are near and dear to my heart, they are the roads in the backyard of my hometown of 27 years. I spent many thousands of miles on them and know them well. I could not use every great road in the area, but i feel this is a great cross section of the roads i love. I hope you enjoy them as much as i do.
-The route is probably only 40% gravel, but a CX bike or bike with 28c tires isn’t a bad idea. It is a free country though, do as you will.
-I started the route at Silver Springs State park where there is a big parking lot, but you can start from where ever you choose, just ride every mile.
-In the route notes you will see the three things to photograph your bike in front of for proof of travel:
-The downed plane monument is “Dedicated to all farmers and Ag related business folks that have lived thru the ‘Agricultural Crash’ of the 1980′s.”
-Yogi Bear statue at the camp ground on Millbrook road.
-And the third one will be your choice. Take a photo of your bike in front of something that catches your eye, and send that as your third proof of travel.
