"Why's it only 70 miles?? I want a gravel century or I don't travel."
Have you ridden in Wabaunsee County?
Okay. Have you ridden in Wabaunsee County in July?? I promise you even with an early start time, the speedy will finish just before noon and the challenged just after noon. 70'ish will be enough.
You will be amazed with the views but that Finish Line will be a beaut!
Kansas in July is going to be 90's by mid morning. The good news is with an early start you'll be done or headed to the Finish Line by noon. Make no mistake you will feel the heat around 10-11am but it's bareable until about 2pm. You will be done by 2pm.
Hurry back your fellow gravel riders and the AC is waiting!
The Rock Ridge Gravel crew has got you! You will have THREE "gravel depot" stations on your gravel exploring. PLUS, there is a gas station serving as a FOURTH gravel depot. Depots 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.
