the wife aboard her brand new Spacehorse
The Bonk King aboard his Salsa Cycles
Cookie picked up a pooch to pace him up the hill
This type of riding opens your mind and soul
Taking breaks on hot days is a cool idea.
The gravel was extra dry with sandy bowls everywhere.
Check out the wispy stuff growing on the right of the photo. I love those hills.
sizing the spacehorse is a nightmare. go by toptube length. In the wife's case she is on a 46cm. It comes with a 52 top tube. Bike built with gold fusion rims, xtr front, 105 rear hub. 8spd dura ace sti. spooky brakes, compact crank with 34x46. no name post, saddle, hbar and stem. Cane creek headset. Spd pedals. First ride on bike did 100kms.
Space horse resting. Nice bike, rode great with the Kenda Happy Mediums in 700x40
Thanks to all of you guys for coming out. It was a great day on the bike. Iowa Rocks!!
Well deserved nap on Labor day.
This is the reason the Slender Fungus loves to travel to the remote parts of Iowa. check out that beautiful ribbon of Gravel just following the contour of the earth. We feel fortunate to traverse that road on our delicate machines and experience that land. We roll up and down in a never ending curiosity of what is coming next. I feel like we could have ridden forever.
make it nice, Ari
