2013 Ride #60 (Rio Verde-Res, with a gravel grind)

View Larger Map

Wanted to do a little gravel grind today, so instead of turning left at Rio Verde and heading out to Needle Rock, I turned right into the farm at the north end of the reservation and ground out 4 miles on the dirt before the road turned back into pavement. Ground was a little soft in some places for 700×23 road slicks, and was washboarded out in others, but all in all it was fun. And that’s what cycling is all about.
