Good to hear some comments about the new route, I wasnt able to make it out there last weekend. I've done the 100 miler the last 2 years, both with 6 hr finish times. A long ride that early in the year is always challenging. I'd like to get out and try that new route sometime but the 3 hr drive out there is discouraging. And ive got some prime gravel in my area (Lapeer/North Oakland co.) I'm not going to be able to make it to Barry next year. I was really looking to add a 3rd mug to the collection.
Any recommended routes in your area? Lots of good gravel around there.
