There is not much I can say about how amazing it was to escape to Iowa for a few hours. Bonk King, Jakey and I met in Sycamore and carpooled out there. Rode for 3 hours solid and came back to IL. It was an amazing day. The gravel was amazing, the tailwind that brought us back was amazing. I loved every minute of it.
I hope this happens again. I really do.
