    Almonzo Gravel Road Series.

    Hola. Anyone attempting to ride any of these races?

    I've just sent my postcard in to the Heck of the North. 100 miles of unsupported riding on gravel and dirt back-roads up in Northern MN. As the website says, there is no chance of resupply on the route, so plan well!

    When I ride my bike I feel free and happy and strong. I'm liberated from the usual nonsense of day to day life. Solid, dependable, silent, my bike is my horse, my fighter jet, my island, my friend. Together we will conquer that hill and thereafter the world.

    I'm hoping to get another event on the calendar for 2013, with more dirt

    I just attempted the Almanzo on Saturday. The fresh rock destroyed my tires and took me out of the race almost as soon as it began. I'm pretty bummed that I didn't get the opportunity to finish this year, but it's still an awesome event, and it's free!

    Try the Heck of the North or one of the other AGRS races. They are all free!
