The fast group was just starting to roll out at I rolled into the parking lot. The intermediates gave the fast riders a few seconds clear the lot before the group of 10 headed out.
It was a pretty standard intermediate gravel ride. We kept a fairly tight group and worked together when riding into the breeze. The group stretched out a bit on some of the gravel. This was especially true on sideroad 17 where there was some loose gravel. We always regrouped and nobody was dropped.
The entire group was in club kit. We stopped for a photo op in Glen Allen park. This is one of my favorite places to stop for a snack.
@KGale Took the formal group shots. So hopefully they we follow soon.
This was the end of my intermediate story for today as I headed to Bonnie Lou’s to join the Rec Gravel ride.
The group I saw back at the start location was different from what I left. It also sounds like things didn’t go quite as expected but still fun. Maybe someone could share a first hand account…
