@bobknh. I saw in a different discussion that you're the same "young" age as me. There's hope. 👍I'm not far from you in North Central MA and might he interested. I've been cycling for years but gravel only since December. I'm not having bar problems but I am still waiting for my Brooks to break in. 😊
Hi - so far, despite rain on Thurs- Fri, weather for Sat. looks good. Our roads dry out fast around here. But, there are plenty of washed out sections, pot holes, and nasty 1-2" gravel to keep you alert. Stay tuned.
