"No way I'm doing 150 miles of gravel in July...in Kansas."
What if I told you the first 7 hours are through the night in cooler temps and you'd still be done before 1pm the next day?
"You son of a muddy mile march I'm IN!!!"
150 miles. Start Friday at 8pm. End Saturday before 1pm. Find AC and go to sleep.
Kansas in July is hot. If you are considering this category then you are experienced and you know this. However, Kansas nights in July can be lots of things. Cool and windy. Hot and humid. Rainy and stormy. Rarely super windy though.
150 miles at the slowest allowed 10mph is 15 hours maximum. We'll start at 8pm (tentatively planned)...you do your math for Finish time.
The Rock Ridge Gravel crew has got you! You will have FOUR "gravel depot" stations on your gravel intercity exploration. PLUS, there is a gas station serving as a FIFTH gravel depot. BRING MONEY for this. Located in the last 75% of the route...where you need it. Trust me. Extra HYDRATION only stations will be placed every 15'ish miles through the final 40 miles. RRG has your back. Depot Stations will have Hydration including Skratch Labs, anti cramp juice like Pickle Juice and nutrition choices. If you are picky...bring your own!
For safety sake there will also be a roaming Jeep crew equipped with water.
