Allen, one of my team mates came up with a great challenge. I’m not sure how long he has been thinking about this but it sounded like great fun, a real challenge. Early spring, May in MN, approx. 150 mile bike ride in one day, Mpls MN to Duluth MN. How hard could it be? […]Read More Allen’s Great Adventure (A.G.A.)
Plans are in the making. Airline tickets are purchased. Tourist Visa application is done waiting approval. (Maybe should have gotten that before buying plane tickets eh?) The new TI gravel bike is built and tested, a few times. Fit and finish seem good.
