Hamstrings too. But I’m happy to just pedal through that noise. It’s all in the game.OMFG yup. Crazy, crusty salt stains on my jersey, and my bibs. Every muscle in my legs.

If I get to the middle of it, stall out, fall all the way in and almost rip the shifter off my bike trying to save it from getting sucked into the rapids below, Snakes On A Plane.

I never get off my bike except for flats but who gets flats anymore cause tubeless. And if you flat, you know the way home and lets be honest you were starting to drag a bit anyway. C ya!Stop for a sec so friends can hit-up a roadside fruit stand because the strawberries look great and I needed to pee anyway. But let's keep it under two minutes please this isn't a ramble and while average pace isn't everything it’s something.Happily stop at swimming holes, Barbecue Pits, World's Largest Corn Dogs, Rodeos and Rope Swings. I love to corndog! Let’s make a day of it and roll back into town just before sunset.Average 11mph on the way to lunch.

Two bobo (or similar) bars and two 12oz water bottles.Gravel specific kit like the Sportful Supergiara—cargo pockets! A handlebar bag. A packable jacket like the Sportful HOT PACK NO RAIN.
