Recon Power

Took a day and we logged 80 miles doing some recon on the Dirty Benjamin course. While the weather cooperated, the gravel was all over the place. About 20% was all good, perfect. About 20% was straight up peanut butter. The other 60%, was soft and a work out. Oof. We built some character out there.

Outside of the energy leeching conditions, the route is real nice.

That is the nicest stretch of the ride...some blue gravel. Aw, yeah.

We also reconed a new addition to the route. In the distance behind this water pump

is a trail into the woods. A nifty off road detour that will be added to the route. Very nize!

So what's next you ask. We're waiting to see what is going on with the flooding around Carver for our other off road section. Will it be like Gloria Gaynor and survive? You can be sure that we will be watching that. As for up-and-coming good times, we are preparing to have some fun at the Almanzo 100 with hundreds of good people, riding the Chequamegon 100 and prepping the course for your pleasure.

Keep an eye out for updates as the time until the Dirty Benjamin starts wanes. Otherwise, get out there, ride and enjoy the time between rains.
