This week's Intro to Gravel ride is a 45 mile, flatter than a pancake, exposed to all elements route from Forest View Lanes in Temperance, Michigan. This is one of those routes that looks easy on paper, and it may be. But if the wind is just right, we'll be struggling through the whole route because there is barely a tree in sight. There is a planned stop at the gas station in Ida around mile 22. We will regroup as necessary with about a 15mph average speed.
