Finally made it out to one of the organized local Gravel Grinder rides. So much fun, I forgot it was hovering around 20°F the entire ride with a stiff headwind. We rolled out of the beautiful riverside park by the Argosy Casino, headed west next to the MO upstream on levee gravel. Cut through some dirt fields which was actually a road (Rush Creek) and wound up in a little unincorporated town of Waldron. Three of my favorite things: Bicycles, trains and rivers. Got a flat and the other fellas waited up for me thankfully. Water bottle froze so I'll have to sort that out now that my riding gear accumulation and education has afforded me to ride in these lower temps.
Kill the trainer. There are outdoors outside.
Ride yer bike!
