Alvarado to Grandview with Gravel - 7/4 - 7am

Uncle Buck and I are going to meet at Quick Trip in Alvarado tomorrow morning at 7am and run this route.

Looks to be maybe 60/40 paved, not sure but definitely a good amount of gravel and dirt in there.

Ends in Grandview around 10am or so. Home by 11am or so.

Come out if interested. We'll likely be a moderate pace, no rush.

Very interested, but 7 AM is early to get to Alvarado for me. If I am there, then I am in. If not, then go on without me.

Re: Alvarado to Grandview with Gravel - 7/4 - 7am

Post up how this route turns out, please. I'd like to join you guys on some rides like this. I just bought an AT. No protection on it, so I don't wanna take it off road quite yet. Ya know, Murphy's Law.

Re: Alvarado to Grandview with Gravel - 7/4 - 7am

Wish I could.

Unfortunately the fine folks in the corporate office (Australia) decided that since the 4th is only an American holiday & most of our businesses are not in the US, they are going to proceed with the fiscal year financial close tomorrow.

So, depending on how the numbers pan out, I get to either stick around and answer lots of questions, or I get to stick around and answer no questions.

I'm hoping for the "no questions" option.

I recognize parts of that. I get off at 7am and am not prepared. Have a good ride!

That looks like a good make-out spot.

Yeah, it was a bit short notice.

I'm game for something this weekend. Saturday or Sunday early morning before it gets hot.

Re: Alvarado to Grandview with Gravel - 7/4 - 7am

I need to really start working out. My legs are still kind of sore from how much I squeezed my tank on some of those roads.

Fun route. Would have been nice to have another person along in case I went down again. Thankfully the only time my bike was dropped was when we stopped to take pics near the lake seen above. Seems I need to practice parking too.
