3GR Report

Ali digging for a bottle
Hey, guess what? I actually thought to bring a camera on the ride this past Friday! I know....amazing!

Well, the 3GR is having a slow start with folks. This time I played host to my co-worker, Ali, who was on her first gravel grinder. She brought along her recently purchased 70's era Kabuki.

(See- you don't need to worry about which bike you "need", you just "need" to ride your bicycle!)

I used a slightly modified loop to what the first two had been, since there was a wicked South-Southeasterly wind afoot. So we went only a few miles North, and then mostly East, a bit back South, then back Westwards to finish up.

It was good to pass on a bit of knowledge to a new rider, and I think Ali got a good time out of it all. We did arrive at the conclusion that she is likely a natural born single speeder. I look for the Kabuki to shed some shifty bits soon!

Okay, I am still planning on continuing this series of rides every Friday at 5:30pm out of Gateway Park. Hope to see ya all there!

3GR Report

I didn't get a pic on the ride, but I rode this bike!
I forgot my camera for the first 3GR on Friday, May 4th. We had five riders and did about a 20 mile loop north out of Cedar Falls at a very casual pace.

We're teeing up to do it all again this coming Friday at 5:30pm at Gateway Park to go north out of town again.

Maybe this time we'll get the whole loop in! We cut the ride a little short due to weather concerns last Friday. Come join us in the fun!
